The Flower Tent was started by Tom Ansilio with the assistance and guidance of his father in 1992 with 1 location in Wyoming, PA. After seeing a successful Easter, he decided to open a second location in Kingston, PA. for the Mother’s Day and Memorial Day seasons. The following year he opened up 11 locations. In 1995 Tom’s brother, Tim, joined The Flower Tent and they continued to add locations every year. By the year 2011 The Flower Tent has 110 locations in 13 counties throughout the state of Pa. and 1 location in N.J. along with a location in New York.
Introduction to the Flower Tent Franchise Brand:
What is the Flower Tent Franchise?
The business model is a seasonal flower retail franchise which offers franchisees a low investment business model with high profit margins and strong opportunities for growth. Locations are opened in parking lots, gas stations, grocery store lots and other areas which Flower Tent Management will help you find. Leases are low cost due to the space not being used otherwise and provide maximum exposure and street visibility. Flowers are sourced through premium growers and have been negotiated to provide franchisees with the best pricing possible. Franchisees have the ability to open a business for three months of the year and generate in excess of $150,000 in revenue by capitalizing on the top flower sales weekends of the year. Profit margins for the business can be as high as 22% from a single operating unit, but depend on the operators ability to control costs and maximize franchise profits.
