Attributes for their success are education and customer service. Two florists on staff have a bachelor’s degree in Floral Design, and they are continuously attending seminars and shows on the latest floral designs. Casa Flora also believes that a customer is for life, therefore customer service is key. Longtime employee Darlene Clark stated, “We are there in their sad times, and we are there in their happy times.” At the Chamber of Commerce you have access to customer service training that is offered at convenient times for yourself and your employees.
