How to Write a Flower Shop Business Plan

The flower shop, more commonly known as a florist, the industry has been flourishing over the last several years, which has in turn moderately increased the demand for flower shop or florist business plans, flower shop business plan templates, and even flower shop pro forma financial projections. 

There are numerous reasons for the elevated demand in the industry for business plans.  For example, sending flowers is a time-honored tradition and action in our society when someone is sick, in the hospital, for holiday, or even just to say thank you.  As more and more individuals embrace sending flowers as a token of appreciation, flower shop businesses will, in turn, continue to flourish and need business plans to support growth and expansion.

Because of the growing demand for flower shop/florist business plans, our flower shop business plan writer has come up with some tips and tricks on how to write and prepare flower shop business plans, flower shop business plan templates, and even pro forma financial projections for the florist.


Executive Summary for a Flower Shop or Florist Business Plan or Template.

The executive summary section of the florist or flower shop business plan should include common traits of the business such as company name, popular floral arrangements sold, any niche products, and whether delivery is available.  Also, our flower shop business plan writer all too often includes a brief discussion related to the flower shop owner’s personal and/or professional experiences in relation to their business.  By touching on the owner’s experience and/or passion in the executive summary, flower shop business owners are able to establish a foundation upon which their driving motivations are built.

Company Information and Location for a Flower Shop or Florist Business Plan.

The company information section for a florist business plan should start off with introducing the organization’s name, legal structure, and main anticipated revenue driver.  Further, our florist business plan writer strongly embraces the concept and practice of explaining competitive advantages near the start of this section.  A competitive advantage for flower shops could be their geographic delivery area, unique flower arrangement displays, or a wide selection of flowers that may be used in custom designs.  Regardless of your competitive advantage or niche service, make sure to discuss in detail this edge.

Popular Services offered by a Flower Shop or Florist.

Common revenue generators for a flower shop may include floral arrangements, delivery, gourmet baskets, live plants, and complementarity chocolates or other gifts.  Further, our flower shop or florist business plan writer has also found that florists like to differentiate their services from area competitors.  Differentiating factors for flower shops may include providing handwritten notes for floral arrangements, delivering to businesses as well as residential areas, and even shipping some products nationwide.  Regardless of the niche or differentiating factors for the flower shop, make sure the first state the services that are provided, and then support the services with your niche product offerings.

Proforma Financial Projections for a Flower Shop or Florist.

Pro forma financial projections for flower shops are structured typically like other retail stores.  Specifically, our pro forma financial projection professional will identify the number of flower arrangements sold or expected to be sold, come up with an average sales price for their arrangements sold, and then determine the variable costs, on average, for floral arrangements.  From this foundation, a business plan writer and financial projection professional can then identify startup costs and monthly fixed costs that are custom to the business owner’s situation.  This structure provides a simple and workable business model that may not only be used for business plan projection purposes but also for benchmarking and creating sales projections.

Hopefully, these insightful tips and tricks for writing a business plan were helpful.  As always, if you need help with a business plan or financial projections, just send us an email or give us a call.
