KSA Group is pleased to announce that one of the oldest luxury florists in London, Hayford & Rhodes, has been sold to McQueens Flowers.
Established in 1924 in London, Hayford & Rhodes began their story as William Hayford, a heritage luxury florist, whom were the first in the City to deliver flowers on a wide scale and became the florist of choice for high profile clients including Winston Churchill, The Mayor of London and The Queen Mother. Now they are an award-winning florist, delivering bespoke designs to diverse client groups, suiting all types of occasion. They live by and stand out from the competition by striving to achieve its mission to never replicate the same design twice.
Unfortunately, the recent pandemic forced a temporary cessation of a large proportion of the business and resulted in the need for the company to be restructured. Wayne Harrison and Eric Walls of KSA Group were appointed as administrators on 27th August 2020 with the business being sold to McQueens Flowers Ltd, saving 8 jobs.
McQueens Flowers Ltd have been in the florist industry since 1991, gaining a reputation for creating colourful, creative floral designs, perfectly matched to every occasion and setting. It has provided the flowers for the prestigious Vanity Fair Oscars After party for the last 25 years, among being involved in many other stunning high-profile events. Not only does it have a flower shop offering same-day delivery in London, but it also has creative studios, workshops and flower schools in London, New York and Seoul and serves customers worldwide, including UAE, Hong Kong and Australia.
