A Better Florist CEO responds to flak, says can do better




On Feb. 15, we shared a story about A Better Florist’s second Valentine’s Day Flak.

We reached out to Steve Feiner, CEO of A Better Florist who explained to us what happened this Valentine’s Day.


What’s “Her Flowers”?

On their Facebook page, there were several complaints about Her Flowers, another local florist.


Feiner confirmed that Her Flowers is indeed affiliated to A Better Florist, but with a different management and goals.

“A Better Florist strives to deliver the best bouquet at a fair price, while Her Flowers wishes to deliver a unique bouquet especially for that special person in your life.”

Painful but valuable learning experience in 2017


According to Feiner, the company disappointed a lot of customers in 2017 and “certainly did not take that lightly”.


“I remember personally calling hundreds of people and apologising to countless recipients.”


From last year’s experience, they learnt three things: To deliver, to be responsive and to be honest, clear and transparent.


However, these lessons weren’t so apparent to about 17 customers whose deliveries were attempted but failed.

At least they strive to be better, and didn't threaten to sue the pants off customers unlike some pathetic ice-cream shop in Orchard road.

  • File photo of the Food Junction outlet at Bugis in Singapore and a BreadTalk outlet. (Photo: Food Junction website and Facebook@BreadTalk) SINGAPORE: BreadTalk Group on Monday (Sep 2) announced its intention to acquire food court operator Food Junction Management (FJM) for S$80 million through subsidiary Topwin Investment Holding. In a filing to the Singapore Exchange, the food and beverage group said its wholly owned subsidiary Topwin had entered into a sale and purchase agreement on Aug 30 for the proposed acquisition of FJM from Food Junction Holdings. The total consideration of S$80 million will be paid in cash and will be funded through BreadTalk Group's internal resources - including available cash on hand - and debt facilities, according to the filing. The amount could be subject to further adjustments to take into account actual cash, debt and working capital of FJM as at completion of the acquisition. The figure was arrived at after "arms’ length negotiations", said BreadTalk Group in its filing.  It took into consideration factors such as the quality of the assets being acquired and the strategic value of FJM’s existing network of food courts and outlets to BreadTalk Group, as well as its financials, earnings quality and future potential. FJM and its wholly owned subsidiaries Food Junction Singapore and T&W Food Junction operate food courts and food and beverage outlets in Singapore and Malaysia. They collectively operate a network of 12 food courts in Singapore and three in Malaysia, with another one scheduled to open in Johor Bahru next year. BreadTalk Group operates food courts under the Food Republic and Food Opera brands across Singapore, Malaysia, China, Taiwan, Cambodia and Thailand. As at Jun 30 this year, BreadTalk Group operates 14 food courts in Singapore and two in Malaysia.
