Surprising a loved one with their favorite flowers will never run out of fashion. In this digital era, we prefer ordering almost anything and everything to be delivered to our doorsteps. So, wouldn’t it be great to get freshly bloomed flowers as well?
According to a recent study published by IBIS, the florist industry has reached around $800 million in the last five years and is likely to augment in the foreseen times as well.
If you are a part of the flower industry, own a florist shop or are aspiring to join this growing industry, having a flower delivery app becomes essential. You are bound to lose several potential customers and fail to reach your target customers. Developing an on-demand florist app makes you visible to a larger audience and will bring a positive impact on your overall sales.
If you wish to develop your very own florist app similar to Ferns and Petals, we are here to guide you through the process.
Developing an on-demand florist app involves three sub-apps- Customer app, Admin panel, and Driver app.
To provide successful flower delivery services, each of these apps has its unique features and functionality. We will go through the detailed features for each of the apps to give you a complete idea of the Florist app.
So let’s get started!

Features like sorting and filters along with appropriate categories make search smooth and quick. As a result, the app users need not waste their time by going through a large variety of flowers you offer.
