Your Professional Florist was founded on the principle of fairness to the member florist.
The need for a fair and affordable service provider in the retail floral industry was tangible when we first began! The larger wire services were literally killing the smaller flower shops with numerous fees, requirements, minimums and worst of all, becoming their biggest competitors in the retail market.
With a business plan put in action FloralSource International opened it’s doors in July 2002 highlighting their No-Compete Policy, the benefits of low dues and not requiring any equipment to be purchased or leased. Over the past several years sales staff, customer service staff, an Arkansas sales office and a Florida graphic designer have all been added to support the home office in Oregon and serve the growing numbers of US and international members and worldwide market access. In February 2014, FSI was purchased by Your Professional Florist and we look forward to the prosperous future ahead of us.
Our membership plans are easy to understand, easy to apply for and we have plenty of favorable choices for our members. YPF is eager to earn your florists’ business, not penalize you for using our services or compete against you in the market for the consumer’s business. We believe our job is to support our members – including assistance in educating consumers to purchase from local florists and providing useful, cost-effective tools to encourage greater profitability. Our mission is to provide you, our valuable florists, with the fair, affordable service YOU deserve.
