How can a florist business loan help me?

Inventory

If you don’t want to cultivate your own flowers, you’ll need enough money to purchase your supplies from a reliable grower, farmer, or wholesaler. Alternatively, if you decide to grow your own flowers, you’ll need to buy growing supplies such as soil, seeds, fertilizer, etc. You’ll also want to ensure that you have additional inventory on-hand for your busy seasons.

Marketing

It's hard to run a successful florist business without getting your name out to the public. Marketing your business is a proven way to gain awareness and pull in clientele. To do so, you may want to build your online presence with a website, run ad campaigns, and promote your business on social media, television, or the radio. Use a florist business loan to alleviate the financial burden of marketing. 

Equipment

In addition to your inventory, you’ll also need the proper equipment to maintain, display, and transport your products. This could include a delivery vehicle, large cooling systems, hydration systems, display shelving, and a temperature-controlled greenhouse. Florist equipment doesn’t come without a hefty price tag. Use a florist business loan to deck out your business with all of the necessary equipment.
