  • Shop around for your florist flowers and supplies

Never keep only one supplier for your flowers and supplies. You may have a favorite wholesaler. But t might happen that any day he or she may fall sick and detain from providing you with flowers. Make a steady research of the pricing from various flower suppliers and see which one is convenient for you.

To build a good relation with your wholesaler, make sure you pay all bills on time, be loyal to them and give them feedback on their good and bad points.

  • Rethink wire service orders for your flower shop

This is indeed a touchy subject and is likely to bring harm to your profits. Begin by looking at your wire service statement and then calculate the costs on flower, supplies, labor and time. Check if you are making a profit.

  • Sell more than just flowers in your shop
