After moving to Australia Bill and Maria Rizos got married in 1982. Bill was working in the Hospitality Industry and Maria was studying Fine Arts whilst working as a clerk. After having their first Daughter in 1984 they felt it was time to start up their own small business. In 1987 Bill and Maria bought Monterey Mixed business and changed the name to B & M Florist, where Maria went off to study floristry. The business eventually grew from a small suburb corner store that was selling mixed goods and flowers to one of the largest florists in New South Wales.

25 years later, with three Daughters, B & M Florist is still family owned and run. Our team has consistently ranked as one of the finest florist in Sydney, holding multi awards in our industry within Australia and Overseas. The Rizos family consists of colour consultants, interior decorators, landscape designers, Business majors at University and most of all, a group of the most talented floral designers in the State.

 B & M Florist is a team of eight; we pride our self in offering exceptional quality flowers and goods.  Consistently keeping up to date with local and international trends, our team are committed to always staying at the top of the industry. Our business is family run across the whole chain, from hand selecting every individual flower to serving customers and doing deliveries.
