Floom is an online marketplace that makes it easy for consumers to buy high quality & unique flowers from independent florists. Backed by the founders of New Look & AMC Fresh; Floom want to do for flowers what Deliveroo did for takeaway & have seen monthly net revenue grow by an average of 17% MoM
Floom is designed to solve the problem of finding and sending a quality bouquet of flowers. It is a marketplace that brings flowers crafted by a real florist to the time-poor customer. We are bringing technology, e-commerce and design to an industry that is run by archaic processes and systems. Our research suggests that very few independent florists have e-commerce websites, and have found the large conglomerates that do offer flowers online to have mundane bouquets & a confusing online experience.
Our florists are vetted for quality, their listing photography standardised and their bouquets listed based on the florist's chosen delivery areas. Florists are given access to a dashboard that allows them to add products, set prices, & publish to the website. Customers visit the site, enter the post-code, and choose a bouquet that suits them.
We plan to do for flowers what Deliveroo are doing for takeaway; bringing quality and choice to the customer and championing the local independent business along the way.
The model means Floom holds no risk with what is otherwise a rapidly perishable product, as well as no large warehouse and frozen storage costs.
Trading since March of 2016, over 350,000 unique visitors have been on the site and return purchasers average at 40%, growing by an average of 23% each month.
