Exclusive for WF&FSA Members: Tracking Survey of Cut-Flower Wholesale Florists 
During WF&FSA’s 2016 Floral Distribution Conference in Miami, a panel of industry experts presented the results of a research study which profiled U.S. Wholesale Florist Operational Practices and Financial Performance. This study, conducted by Prince & Prince, Inc. for the Colombian Association of Flower Exporters (Asocolflores), analyzed a broad array of wholesaler and business metrics that have key influences on floral sales, sales growth, profitability, and the long term viability of the wholesale marketplace. 

This study was originally conducted in 2009, and has been updated to include additional information on wholesale florist operations as well as benchmarking data for a current industry snapshot. Below WF&FSA members can access the full study in two parts. (Please note your WF&FSA email address and password will be required to login.
