KaBloom Florist Franchise Information:
Experience The Power Of Fresh Flowers.
KaBloom is the nation's largest storefront floral retailer. KaBloom is a full-service florist and its locations are easily accessible, state-of-the-art with large walk-in coolers open to the public, providing consumers the European "wow effect" that did not exist in the U.S. before KaBloom. Deliveries from around the world are delivered via FedEx two to seven days faster and fresher than for florists who buy from wholesalers locally, providing longer shelf-life in the stores and longer counter life in customers' homes and workplaces. This, combined with innumerable other prototype aspects of the business, provides KaBloom Franchisees with a business that clearly distinguishes itself from its competition. KaBloom has been referred to in the Press as "the Starbucks of flowers."
KaBloom is Primarily a RETAIL Business - Co-Founded by Great Retailers
