We offer Promotional Products for businesses and organizations and Gift With Purchase Products for retailers. Our goal is to deliver great products at great prices that make our customers stand out!
How Did We Get Our Name?
As the name implies, we began our business selling roses. Our initial market was restaurant promotions - customers could buy the rose at their table for their sweetheart. Our business expanded to sell roses in “pop-up” locations for special events like Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day.
The company built on our start in promotional event marketing expanding into the retail Gift With Purchase (GWP) business, first with local retailers, and then by establishing long term relationships with many national retail stores. The Rose Co. pioneered the use of live floral products as a GWP and developed proven processes to ensure delivery to hundreds of locations at the same time – no small feat.
What Else Do We Grow? Your Sales!
Today, we still sell roses and a whole lot more. The evolution of the company continued as we expanded our relationships with national retailers by adding a diverse array of GWP products. From tote bags to ceramics, jewelry to gift boxes, coolers to electronics – in addition to our signature roses and other floral products.
The Rose Co. works with national retailers to design promotional gifts that grow their sales. We custom design and source GWP products based on each customer’s unique requirements. With more than a decade of experience working directly with suppliers around the globe we can deliver products with retail style for considerably less than retail cost. Our detailed focus on logistics ensures that we reliably deliver on-time and on-budget.
Growing Your Brand
