Business Spotlight: Blooming Business - Springfield Business Journal

Springfield in 2018. Owner Eden Garrett earlier this year moved the business to Arkansas, where the flower truck serves the Bentonville and Rogers areas. Hartman says she’s starting to see the trend grow nationally. “Since we’ve started, I’ve seen more pop up across the country,” Hartman says. “I still get emails pretty frequently asking how to start a flower truck, and the whole concept is gaining momentum.” Kate Penn, CEO of the Society of American Florists, says retail floral sales have been growing – to the tune of $35 billion in 2017, a $2 billion increase from the year prior, according to a U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis report on personal consumption expenditures. Penn says the mobile floral business is catching on, and she describes it as “experiential, interactive purchasing.” “There’s a lot of innovation and entrepreneurialism in the flower-buying space right now,” Penn says, noting floral sales have steadily increased during the last decade. “There is a big trend across retail right now, and the floral industry is no different. It’s the idea of trying to do something creative that makes what you’re purchasing interactive and memorable and fun.” The consumer appeal, she says, is being able to walk down the street, stop at a flower truck and purchase flowers by the stem, or create an individual bouquet. “It’s a super smart business model,” Penn says. ...

State Supreme Court rules Richland flower shop discriminated against gay couple by refusing wedding service

Consumer Protection Act by declining to provide services based on sexual orientation.It affirmed the 2015 ruling by Judge Alex Ekstrom in Benton County Superior Court.Ekstrom had sided with state Attorney General Bob Ferguson and the plaintiffs, Robert Ingersoll and Curt Freed, both of whom filed lawsuits against Stutzman and her corporation in 2013 shortly after the refusal. The judge also awarded $1,001 in penalties and costs to the state.Stutzman had asked for direct review by the state Supreme Court. She’s said the civil cases could end costing her the business, her life savings and retirement funds, and her family home.Hundreds of people packed the Bellevue College theater on Nov. 15 when attorneys argued before the state Supreme Court.Seattle lawyer Michael Scott lauded the court’s “one voice” decision Thursday, saying it took great courage for clients Ingersoll and Freed to stand up for the rights of all LGBT people.Scott — who represents the couple on behalf of the American Civil Liberties Union — said their case is not only about principles, but about human beings and the moments in their lives that are most important to them.The decision “upholds a core value of American law. That core value is the essential human dignity of every person,” Scott said in a news conference. “The opinion affirms over a century, an unbroken century of precedent, prohibiting discrimination in places of public accommodation.”Laws against discrimination protect everyone in this diverse society, including Ingersoll and Freed, based on their sexual orientation, and Stutzman, based on her religion, Scott added.“These laws ensure that all of us can participate equally and with dignity in commerce and our civil society,” he said.Ferguson added that it’s a “complete, unequivocal victory for equality.”Related stories from Tri-City HeraldArlene’s Flowers is not required to sell wedding...
