In 1987 Bill and Maria took over Monterey Mixed business, a local suburb corner store selling groceries and a small amount of flowers. Shortly after the name was changed to B & M Florist where Maria then went off to study the fine art of floristry at Padstow Tafe.
The business eventually grew from a small suburb corner store that was selling mixed goods and flowers to one of the largest and most awarded florist shop in New South Wales
30 years later B & M Florist is still family owned and run across the whole chain, from hand selecting every individual flower to serving customers and doing deliveries.B & M Florist is a team of eight; we pride our self in offering exceptional quality flowers and goods. The Rizos family consists of colour consultants, interior decorators, landscape designers, Event Co-coordinators and Business majors at University but most of all, a group of the most qualified and talented floral designers in the State.
The Rizos Family believes that still having one store after 30 years makes them different from other shops in the industry. It allows us to create and offer personalised services to our customers, to consistently offer high quality flowers and source exclusive gifts.
