No matter which, for hobby or for business, we help you
All these floral arrangements were made by our students under the directions of our instructors during real lessons in the classroom of California Flower Art Academy.
From student to student, the purpose for learning flower arrangements is different. The majority of people learn strictly for hobby. However we still find many students who are learning for doing floral business. The most popular business is running a floral shop. Second popular one is working for a florist as a floral designer. And the third one is offering floral decorating services for weddings and some other events.
For running a floral shop, the easiest and common way is buying a floral shop for sale. When buying a floral shop, they need to pay special attention to the things below:
A. Floral shops that are not profitable are often for sale. In case of very profitable floral shop, the price is very expensive.
B. If the buyer has no previous experience in running a floral shop OR if they have no experience in doing any kind of business OR the buyer is not business savvy, they have to learn from the current owner about how to operate the floral shop.
In some cases, the seller often provides "after-sales training" for 3 to 6 months during which period the new owner needs to learn the business. Does the seller offer such service and is it included in the sale price ?
C. Flower Arranging Skill:
Before buying a floral shop, has a buyer earned floral design skill enough to run a floral shop ?
D. If the current operation of floral shop (you are going to buy) is not profitable, what is the reason behind that ? The buyer needs to find the reason why.
On the other hand if the purpose for learning floral designs is for enjoying as a hobby, you do not have to worry about anything mentioned above. There is no concern about cash flower management and you don't have to worry about profitability. Plus you are free from negotiation about sale price with demanding customers And also you don't worry about delivery dead line etc etc. You can concentrate on earning skills of floral arranging by taking lessons at our school. We are more than happy to help you so you will earn practical skills by way of semi private lessons.
