After eight years of hard work, Nick Wallander's mom was let go by the company she worked for as a florist. Out of heartbreak for seeing his mother being treated unfairly, Nick decided to do a little marketing for his mother's business.

Years later, Nick left his long standing career in Telecoms and started a similar company to the one his mother worked for.

Today, SA Florist has 180 neighbourhood florists nationwide and is a nominee for this year's Sage One Small Business Awards.

Wallander is the owner of SA Florist, a unique online marketplace where customers can purchase flowers, hampers and gifts from a variety of small, independent florists and artisans nationwide.

Wallander built a geolocation tool that allows SA Florist to pinpoint a nearby florist who then delivers to its customers a lot quicker than would otherwise have possible.

His aim is to offer his customers a unique bunch of flowers that is made with love from these neighbourhood florists.

Wallander says SA Florist is a small business that saves other small businesses.

What SA Florist promises:

  • Top quality flowers

  • Deliveries on time, every time

  • Great value for money

  • An industry-leading customer experience for each and every order
