"As soon as customers walk through the door of Best Buds Flower Company they notice something special sitting next to the cash register: a big jar of freshly baked cookies."
-Edmontonians Magazine 2007, Sizzling Twenty Under 30
Best Buds' roots lie in friendship and our business has been founded on the principles that make a good friend - reliability, comfort, and communication.
Home-baked cookies for Best Buds’ customers is just one tradition that has become a legacy. Not only do customers receive exceptional quality flowers and fresh designs, they experience the Best Buds culture when they walk through the doors. Best Buds employees strive to create a fun and friendly atmosphere for clients where customer service means getting personal: knowing your name, your mom’s favourite flower, your cookie flavour of choice, and your dog’s last crazy episode.
Previously a franchise, the shop went independent in 2005 and Best Buds Flower Company has been a flourishing locally-owned store ever since. In 2006, former employee Kimberly Wagil Karpan purchased the company, and along with continuing the cookie baking, Kimberly has made the shop what it is today - a place people feel comfortable.
