When you go to your local florist to send flowers to your mom who lives in another state, your order goes through what industry professionals call a “wire service”, a network which connects thousands of local florists everywhere in the US. The major problem with “wire services” is that there are various intermediaries who receive a commission on the price you paid: the florist who took the order from you as well as the wire service itself. These commissions end up representing more than 35% of the price of your arrangement with the local florist who actually makes your bouquet only receiving 65% of what you paid. What is the end result? Your loved one receives a lower valued arrangement than what you ordered. Not a great deal right? At Ode a la ROSE, there are no intermediaries, no commissions so you get the full value of what you paid for!
Most local retail florist especially in major urban cities bear the cost of a high rent which you as a customer end up paying for. At Ode a la ROSE, we have a very different and unique business model. Although all our bouquets are made in house in our workshop by our trained florist, we have no storefront and only sell online which enables us to provide our customers with luxury arrangements at much more affordable prices in comparison to high end local flower shops. And that’s not it! With Ode a la ROSE you get all the benefits you look for when you for when you go to a local florist such as same-day and hand delivery. All our arrangements can be delivered in less than 3 hours.
