Keith Lee is the owner of the Florist & More flower shop, located at 1862 Auburn Road. Opened in 2009, Florist & More offers its customers a wide range of services including customized floral arrangements and wrapping, occasion planing, gifts, delivery services, and wedding and special occasion arrangements. I recently sat down to talk with Keith about his business.
Patch: How did you get started with your floral business?
Keith: I started the business because of my wife. Back in New York my wife learned about floral arrangements and so I told her to come down here to Dacula and we started the shop in '09.
Patch: What is the best aspect of owning Florist & More?
Keith: It lets my wife occupy her time and put her talents to work. Dacula is a nice neighborhood and it needs a good florist.
Patch: What is the most challenging aspect of owning a flower shop?
Keith: Definitely keeping the flowers fresh and to get some customers to walk in the door. I try almost everything. I try advertising, booklets, and giveaways but what it comes down to is economics. People worry about food on their tables instead of flowers on their tables. It's understandable but unfortunate.
Patch: What makes Florist & More unique?
Keith: We try to bring a New York and Asian style fusion to our arrangements. So we have a fresh and unique look in everything we do. We also work with our customers in order to give them something nice no matter what their budget or their price range. We make everybody happy. If a customer wants a specific type of flower and we don't have it already we'll find it for them.
Patch: What makes the Dacula community special?
Keith: The environment is nice, quiet and beautiful whether you're raising a family or running a business. It's great here.
