Springfield. Eden’s Flower Truck, a similar business concept, launched in 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. ... https://sbj.net/stories/business-spotlight-blooming-business,66208?

The Way It Was: Florist lives in fear of attacks of the hiccups - Texarkana GazetteTuesday, September 24, 2019
Investigation is ongoing.Sept. 19:PTA NEWSEighty-two teachers were introduced by J.O. Jones, principal at a meeting of the Parent-Teacher-Association at Arkansas Senior High School. Debbie Cervini sang "His Way-Mine," for the devotional. Her accompanist was Jeannie Powers. The president, Ed Goodson, welcomed parents and teachers and conducted the business session. Approximately 150 members were present. Parents are encouraged to join.Sept. 20:FLORIST HAS HIS PROBLEMFor Walter Broome, the only thing worse than a florist with an allergy to roses is a florist with hiccups. Broome, 52, has been plagued with hiccups off and on for almost 30 years. Broome said that an attack of hiccups usually lasts about two days. When an attack begins he goes to bed and takes a pill prescribed by his doctor. He says it helps but nothing has been able to rid him of the hiccups permanently. "Four days is the longest I've ever had them at one time," Broome said in an interview. He said during the four-day attack that he lost ten pounds. He said that it's worse than pain because once the hiccups stop you always are afraid to move or burp for fear that they will come back. He developed them in the army in 1940.Sept. 21:ARABELLA HEIGHTS EXTENSION HOMEMAKERS CLUBThe club met in the home of Mrs. Carl Jenkins for their September meeting with Mrs. Grace MacKenzie, president presiding. The meeting opened with Mrs. Roy Avance, recreational leader, leading a song, "Precious Memories." The devotional, "Our Daily Bread," was by Mrs. Jenkins. She also showed a wardrobe of "mixed and matched clothes" she had designed and made for the "eye opener." The October meeting will be held in the home of Mrs. A.L. Giles, 1810 Pearl Street.Sept. 22:GOLD STAR MOTHERS TO BE HONOREDPlans were made for a sponsorship program at a special meeting of the Lela Lumpkin Club No. 868, Navy and Marine Mothers at Collins Memorial Building.
