In 2015, Franceska McCaughan launched her own floral design business. Because she thought that's how every florist begins, Franceska initially worked as a wedding florist. Though it didn't take her long to realize that she didn't enjoy it, the 'Hotel Florist' as she is known nowadays, decided to specialize in high-end clientele and stop waiting for the next floral festival (Valentine's Day, Christmas, Easter, etc).

The Moment That Led Franceska McCaughan to Become The Hotel Florist

Franceska has always believed flower arrangements are extremely personal. Because of this, she then started her floral design company, 'Franzie's Flower Design', under the nickname 'Franzi'. After four years, McCaughan believed the company had outgrown the nickname because it was serving very well-known luxury hotels and other significant worldwide companies.

More of Her Background Story

In the United Arab Emirates, Franceska McCaughan found herself amid a desert trying to buy flowers from a man who didn't speak English out of a van off a sandy road while camels passed by. At this point, she quickly assumed that doing weddings was the only way a florist could earn money. She, therefore, performed weddings in Dubai, and a year after moving to Houston, Franceska decided to figure out how to expand her business without only doing weddings.
