Meet the Team
Andrew created the concept for Rockflower’s 24/7/365 fresh flower Units when he found it tough to find unique flower bouquets whilst living in the USA. His passion for technology and natural beauty came into reality in 2014 when the first Rockflower unit opened in London’s Blackfriars Station. Andrew designs all aspects of the Rockflower Auto Retail units and its branding.
