Frederique’s Choice is a new subscription-based flower delivery service and lifestyle brand dedicated to changing the way people buy and enjoy flowers.

Unlike other companies in the space, Frederique’s Choice sources product direct from growers and delivers fresh, quality bouquets overnight to its consumers. Frederique’s Choice flowers and other products are all selected, curated and approved by founder and media personality Frederique van der Wal. Their convenient subscription model has won consumers over, proven by their 20% growth year over year.

Frederique’s Choice is already up and running in Europe, with established customers in the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, Austria and Sweden, with total sales of more than 3,000 bouquets per month. They’ve also signed European partnerships with prestigious brands like Jaguar, KLM and PricewarterhouseCoopers.
