Teleflora was founded in 1934 by Edwin Douglas. The original name was Telegraph Delivery Service. Today, Teleflora is the world’s largest floral wire service in the world. The company provides flower delivery services around the world. Teleflora has offices in 20 countries and has more than 3,000 employees. The company also has 15,000 florists who are members.
The company acquired FlowerBuyer.Com in 2013, which was one of the largest wholesale flower buying services in the world. The company is privately owned by Lynda and Steward Resnick, who purchased it in 1979 for an undisclosed sum.
Teleflora is known for their creative ad campaigns that are featured on Super Bowl ads and on billboards located in shopping malls and bus stops. The company works closely with local florists to provide flower deliveries for weddings, birthdays, mother’s day, funerals, and more.
