Since 2006 Flowers For Kids has trained more than 1700 retail florists and 450 mass market employees to become certified Flowers For Kids teachers. Florists who put the program into action sell more flowers.

Florists who use the program see sales results:

“Flowers For Kids has made me the “Flower Lady” for my local schools. FFK has increased my business by 8% compared to last year. Since being trained I’ve been in local television four times. I’ve now just have a small yellow page ad and stopped all other print advertising. Flowers For Kids gets our name all over Madison, opens doors, and gives us confidence to come up with other ideas. I’ve started a adults “Flowers for Kids at Heart” program that has resulted in 26 weekly standing orders. Flowers For Kids works! Call me.”
