About 24Hour Florist, Inc.
24Hour Florist, Inc. is the parent company of
which is an association that connects the consumer directly to local florists without charging florists huge fees
like the major order gatherers do.
24Hour Florist, Inc. is also the manufacturer of the patented "24Hour
Florist Automated Floral Cooler Kiosk"
which gives local florists an opportunity to sell as well as display their
products and services to customers in more convenient locations
such as shopping Malls, Hospitals, Hotels, Office
Buildings, Airports and many other locations making it far more convenient to make someone's day with a
beautiful flower arrangement.
The founder of our company is Milton Vallaire. Milton's parents began working in the
florist business in the 1920s and then started their own retail flower business in 1942 in New Orleans, LA. Milton
has been carrying on the tradition ever since. In the early 1990s, Milton came up with the idea for the
automated floral kiosk and set to work on getting a patent to protect his idea. He was awarded his patent (#5,971,273) in 1998
and his automated floral kiosk became a reality in 2006.
Milton says it best... "I am trying to help
local florists get more direct orders from consumers as I saw order gatherers like FTD®, Telflora®, 800Flowers®, and
more grabbing all the orders and then selling them back to the florists for pennies on the dollar. I saw so many of
my good friends in the flower business closing their doors and many even going bankrupt as a result of these watered
down sales becoming a bigger and bigger part of their business."
"I saw the floral kiosk as the best way
to get florists back in touch with their local customers directly without having to give so much of their income to
the middleman companies."
