They created the Uber of flower delivery. Then disaster struck. Could they find redemption?
Nordic Europeans like writing about other people,” Kori says.He got the idea for UrbanStems in 2013, while living in New York and working at the e-commerce site Quidsi (which was the parent company of Diapers.com). “I was lucky enough to be mentored by Marc Lore, who started Quidsi, which had just sold to Amazon,” says Kori, name-dropping a few industry titans. (Jeffrey P. Bezos, founder and chief executive of Amazon.com, owns The Washington Post.) “Marc went on to start Jet.com, which sold to Walmart for [$3.3 billion]. And the reason all those sites were so successful was they created the best possible experience for their customers. Even if you could buy diapers cheaper, the moms who bought from Diapers.com wouldn’t go anywhere else, because they knew ... if the diapers didn’t get delivered, someone on that team would go and drive it themselves.”At the time, Kori was in a long-distance relationship with a woman in Philadelphia and, naturally, sent her a lot of flowers. “I just kept having bad experience after bad experience,” he recalls. “It crescendoed on her birthday. I sent her this bouquet and held off on calling because I thought the flowers would surprise her. Late into the day, it hadn’t shown up. I called the company and they just told me, ‘It’s coming, it’s coming.’ ”The flowers never came — and Kori later learned that his experience was common. Flower-delivery services are among the worst-ranked industries in customer reviews. E-commerce was supposed to make everything cheaper, faster and more efficient, but Kori argues that the opposite happened with online flower delivery. Major companies like 1-800-Flowers and FTD (also known as Florists’ Transworld Delivery) operate essentially as aggregators. When you buy a bouquet through them, your order is placed on what the industry calls the “flower wire,” a practice that dates to 1910, when a group of florists formed a cooperative to trade orders nationwide via telegraph. A local florist fills the order, but without that florist’s branding and with the aggregator taking a cut.Those local florists, the thinking goes, will prioritize the buyers who walk through their door, pay full price and take home a bouquet stamped with their logo. “It’s often why you hear that flowers [ordered through an aggregator] got delivered at the end of the day, or they didn’t survive that long,” Kori says. “The florists are going to use their best stems on their core customers.”A 1-800-Flowers spokesperson called the notion that its ordering system may compromise bouquet quality “ridiculous,” adding that the company’s wire service “has established and maintained the industry’s most stringent business standards for participating florists and conducts audits regularly for quality.” FTD did not respond to requests for comment.Linda Bolton Weiser, a senior analyst for financial services firm D.A. Davidson who follows the floral industry, is skeptical of the ability of a small start-up like UrbanStems to take on established players like 1-800-Flowers and FTD. “These little companies come in and out over the years,” she says, “and they all have a solution to a different thing.” But the industry has especially thin profit margins, buoyed by holidays like Valentine’s and Mother’s Day, she explains. As such, companies like 1-800-Flowers have pivoted to selling a large portfolio of gift items, not just flowers.Undaunted, Kori and Sheely set out to disrupt the middleman-laden industry by buying their own stems from farms in South and Central America, designing their own bouquets, and hiring delivery couriers as salaried employees. This approach was tested on the company’s first Valentine’s Day in 2014. Two days earlier, a storm had dumped six inches of snow onto Washington, rendering the roads treacherous and prompting changes to many delivery destinations, as offices closed for snow days. The co-founders and some friends took to...Apr 20, 2018
Lewes blooms with Tulip Celebration
April 15.Although now a staple of spring in Lewes, the idea for the Tulip Celebration came after the mayor read about one held in New York.“He thought it would be a good way to honor our Dutch heritage and it’s been a great success,” said Betsy Reamer, executive director of the Lewes Chamber of Commerce.As the years have gone on, the event has grown, bringing together many different aspects of the community from garden enthusiasts to restaurateurs.“It’s amazing how much work all the organizations are able to get done, especially since they are volunteer-based and because preparing for the event is a year-round commitment,” Ms. Reamer said.One of the most important parts of the celebration is the tulips themselves.

(Delaware State News by Marc Clery)20,000 — a number which has grown every year after starting with just 3,000 bulbs nine years ago.“The tulips really transform the town,” said Ms. Reamer who can see a large portion of them from her office window.“Whether you’re just passing through town or coming specially to look at the tulips, you won’t be disappointed.”In addition to the tulips in the central areas of town, floral displays have been created by the Sussex Gardeners, one of the oldest garden clubs in the U.S. founded in 1937, and will ...
