As you know, at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM we live to deliver smiles, which is why we wanted to share this smile-worthy story from one of our special franchise flower shops!
Flowerama Franchisee Danaë Timmerman joined the 1-800-Flowers Franchise Family in 2011 and immediately made a name for herself amongst a community of professional and competitive flower shop owners. This was most recently brought to light at the 2013 1-800-Flowers National Franchise Convention, where Danaë was presented with the Franchisee of the Year Award.
The award, which was presented by 1-800-FLOWERS.COM CEO & Founder, Jim McCann, is about more than operating metrics. It is about having a positive attitude, about embracing the franchise community and reaching out to others to share best practices and successes. It’s about involvement. Danaë Timmerman exemplifies all of those qualities.
“I have been in the floral business over 12 years, two stores, four kids, numerous employees and thousands of customers. Every day brings a new opportunity, a new experience. I approach each day with a willingness to learn from those around me, share what I know, lead by example, and have a fun time doing it!”
“Receiving the Presidents Award and the recognition from my peers is exciting, exhilarating and motivating. However, the best part has been sharing it with my family, my employees, my friends at Flowerama, 1-800 Flowers and Floriology for without all of you, I wouldn’t be the business owner I am today. Thank you for your recognition, but more importantly for all of your help and support. I am looking forward to what opportunities tomorrow will bring.”
“A special thanks also goes out to 1-800 Flowers for an amazing convention. Motivational speakers with ideas to improve our business, an ever increasing vendor showcase and the happy hours where we get to know each other, share our ideas and successes.”
