North Carolina companies," said Richard Cherry, Sales and Logistics Manager for the company.It started 25 years ago. Ed and Jeff Glenn, who also own Jefferson's Florist in Greenville, decided there was a market for high-quality artificial floral arrangements.

"That's really how the company got started."You can now find their flowers in hotels, museums, department stores and more.

Roy Cooper acknowledged the business with the award."We're really proud of the reputation that we have now," Cherry said.It's an impressive feat for a company that exports wonderful items handmade by 15 individuals."We're not looking to be the biggest, we're not looking to compete with big box craft stores, selling fake flowers," Cherry said.
