Speaking Roses have created their own patented technological process that distinguishes what they offer from any other kind of personalised gift printing service. The company does not use stickers or decals, but directly applies ink in a fast and efficient way, with a state-of-the-art flower printer. This can apply bright and metallic ink to a variety of delicate surfaces.
The brand has gained global viral recognition, featured in over 100 major global publications and media networks, including Forbes and the Oscars, and has gained publicity through support from celebrities such as Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman. As there is no other brand providing this service, this can be an exciting and unique opportunity for anyone looking for a creative and novel business opportunity.
While the franchise is based in the floristry industry, you do not need experience as a florist to start a Speaking Roses business. It is an ideal franchise for anyone with a creative eye, and an appreciation for how you can use the brand’s unique technology to create appealing and innovative products for customers.
As with any franchise, having a good business sense will be a helpful trait. Would-be franchise owners should be self-motivated, dedicated and have great communication skills to network and promote the product to a wider market.
Speaking Roses offers a Speaking Roses University for all franchisees, allowing them to complete their training through online study. The brand also offers a live, three-day training course on-site at its headquarters in Utah.
The course covers all parts of the service, including practical knowledge on to handle their unique printing equipment and flower handling skills during and after printing. The programme also covers essential sales and marketing information, and franchisees are taught how to target particular niches within the floristry, gifting and advertising industries.
While the programme trains you on how to create products for a range of applications such as holidays, birthdays, weddings and other everyday celebrations, Speaking Roses will also support you on the development of any new product ideas you may come up with.
Speaking Roses also offers regular training sessions at its headquarters to share new ideas and skills, helping franchisees to continually offer new and exciting products to customers.
