What is the idea behind Blossoms Fresh Fruit Arrangements?
After 15 years in the floral and gift giving industry, our creators and owners were noticing a trend that more and more people were looking for an alternative to flowers. Customers were seeking out more practical gift giving ideas. With some research, the owners soon found that Fresh Fruit Arrangements were one of the fastest-growing trends.
Just recently, many of the Health Sciences (hospitals) in Canada and the UK have implemented a policy making it virtually impossible to deliver flowers to several floors. It’s also becoming a growing trend in many US hospitals and health care facilities. With these new policies in place, our demand and sales have drastically increased. Many government offices are now following suit, as we watch our demand and sales taking an additional huge upward swing.
Blossoms Fresh Fruit Arrangements are making a splash in North America. People are choosing our bouquets for holidays, centerpieces, sympathy arrangements, birthdays, parties, celebrations and more. Consumer trends indicate that healthy eating is on the rise and we will continue to see this growth in years to come. Fresh Fruit Arrangements are quickly becoming the ‘Future of Gift Giving.’

Can you describe a typical day in the life of a Blossom licensee?
Each licensee is very different, and each day can differ greatly. Many start their day by preparing and completing all of their orders for the day, and watching the delighted facial expressions as they hand a customer their arrangement.
Throughout their day our licensees not only fulfill large amounts of orders, but also network and market within their communities, on their social media sites, and take part in various community events to showcase their product and business.
