Flower companies partner
A West Michigan floral company has partnered with a California company backed by venture capitalists.
Grand Rapids-based Posh Petals, a floral design and event planning firm, has partnered with Venice Beach, California-based The Bouqs Co. to offer next-day floral arrangements.
The Bouqs Co. was founded in 2012 and is backed by a variety of venture capital funds, including a successful run with the Los Angeles startup company Amplify LA. The firm was on the TV show “Shark Tank” in 2014 but did not receive funding.
The Bouqs Co. works with farms in South America and California to deliver fresh farm-to-door flowers that are cut to order at the farm.
Posh Petals will still offer its own floral arrangements, as well as bridal and special event floral and event decoration and management.
