According to research done by the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) 99.8% of all Canadian companies are small and medium-sized businesses! Wow…

When you think about it Florists are the ultimate small business! Sales, Purchasing, Manufacturing, Delivery, Technology, Marketing, Advertising all under the direction of the florist owner.  Very few businesses can match that. It’s a complex operation and you’re often dealing with many unknowns and unforeseen circumstances (incorrect delivery address, recipient not home, wrong order processed, credit card fraud, etc). It takes a lot of effort to get it done right and make everyone happy.

It’s no wonder that 97% of Canadians buy local to support the local economy. Even tough the Internet has revolutionized the way we learn about products/services and go about acquiring them, people are still preferring to deal with someone local. Someone who will better listen to them and serve them. They feel more secure in having a local florist handle such a delicate thing as a flower delivery! It goes out to show you that nothing beats a human touch.

A florist with a human touch!
52 Years in BusinessBrant Florist is a small business originally established in 1961 by Mr. and Mrs. Jones. Since 1977 the shop has been owned and operated by The Bolt family: Doyle, Tim, Elaine and Ken. By following the Golden Rule (treat every customer the way you would like to be treated) they’ve managed to win many awards and build a successful business. The endless list of positive reviews from their happy clients speak for themselves.

The shop has been processing internet orders since 1996 with a computerized network to manage and record all orders. Even tough there are plenty of florists out there, many of which sell flowers online just like Brant Florist – the amount of care and attention that The Bolt family puts into their orders are seldom matched.

To our clients – THANK YOU!

There’s no mistaking it, summertime brings an array of spectacular flowers and foliage that other seasons just can’t deliver on. Peek into your garden or that of a neighbor’s and you‘re likely to find the likes of allium, astilbe and gorgeous hosta plants! Take in the beauty of soft lambs ear, mint, dahlias, gladiolus and snapdragons too! And these are only a handful of the beautiful summer flowers and plants that may be gracing your garden during the summer months! With your outdoor spaces looking so good why not make a statement indoors too with fresh cut summer flowers?

It’s easy to transport the beauty of summer blooms indoors when you can clip a few stems from your own garden but not everyone is so lucky! If you fall into the latter category Brant Florist has you covered this summer. Simply call or visit the shop and we’ll quickly help you get your fix of summer flowers for your home. Pick up a bouquet of our summer fresh flowers and plunk them into your own vase when you get home. Taa-daa, you have a little bit of summer sunshine indoors.
