As an owner, I have realized that I love to travel, and my business is currently booming – however, I was always wanting to change my location. I am currently selling flowers in Florida, and after my announcement regarding my relocation of the business, everyone started asking questions, and they were unhappy about my decision. My next location was Germany, because of the marketplace and the stability of the currency there. I find it interesting and I love going to new places, and as an entrepreneur.
After a while, I had to ensure that the previous place was rented or sold – so that I can use that money to pay for the rent or to ensure a good location. As you well may know, flowers need light, water and fast distribution – so I was looking for a place right next to a bus station. First, I wanted to ensure that the market was safe for investment, so I have hired a German speaking individual – who was able to perform a survey in a couple of different cities. The best results were achieved in areas where there were not so many Flower Stores that had certain types of flowers to offer.
The ideal design
I have done research and learned about the culture and the lifestyle of Germany and its citizens. I wanted to create a theme that would get accepted as it would be integrated into the current lifestyle – and I found only the best designers and workers that had a good rating online. Luckily, I had a friend who was an actual businessman and he was able to connect me with the right people.
After exactly 6 months, we have chosen a location that used to be a huge restaurant, with an exterior that looked like a huge garden, with many souvenirs from Germany and U.S.A. – people loved it! I could not be happier and I plan to extend my business into other regions.
