Giving and receiving flowers has been part of our lives for as long as anyone can remember, and a beautiful bouquet is still a popular way to show someone you care.
In the UK, it’s estimated that there is an average spend of £36 per person per year on flowers and plants. This means the UK industry is worth an incredible £2.2 billion, and you might be surprised to learn that the majority of this is people buying flowers and plants for themselves.
Of course, there are still many occasions where we buy flowers for others. Dates such as Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day are still very busy for most florists as lots of us rush to buy flowers for the ones we love. It’s difficult to imagine a wedding without beautiful flower arrangements, and bouquets and flowers for funerals remain an important way to express our sympathies and condolences.
It's obvious that us Brits love to be surrounded by flowers and with established brands such as Madinah Rose and Flowers Forever offering franchise opportunities, there are lots of opportunities to get involved.
This continued love of flowers means there has never been a better time to start a florist franchise.
