The streets of New York just got a lot brighter. Uprooted Flower Truck is a fully mobile florist on wheels, and they’re setting up shop to offer flowers to their clients wherever they may be. Armed with a bright and playful truck design, this mobile business is an awesome alternative to your local florist.
With the help of a Kickstarter program the Uprooted Flower Truck set out onto the streets of New York in April of 2015. The aims of this business is to keep up with the busy and diverse lives of its urban clients, and the partners behind Uprooted clearly understand that to make their business profitable in a city where people and trends move quickly, being mobile is a great step.
Although food trucks may be the front-runner in mobile business ideas, it’s a trend that continues to grow in cities and demonstrates that convenience is key. Any services, even your local flower shop can be mobile, and conveniently meet you at your office building or in a shopping district. Considering the lower start-up costs and not being tied down to a physical shop gives businesses on wheels the luxury of experimenting with locations which they will find the most profitable. And although it may be argued that these types of businesses take away from local neighbourhood spots, mobility means residents from all over the city can call this shop their own.
They even introduced new “to-go” bags made for your bouquets that come with handles and hold water at the bottom- especially made for people who are on the go. With the help of social media and the “find the truck” function on their website, clients are able to keep an eye on where this mobile florist is and to find the truck when they need it.
