2021 Florist Awards

ABOUT

The 2021 Fresh Awards will recognise florists across a range of categories. All nominees will be mystery shopped twice throughout the year. The results of these mystery shops will determine the award finalists. Finalists will then participate in a third mystery shop to determine the winner of each award category.

The mystery shopper completes a comprehensive questionnaire that covers numerous aspects across five key criteria:

  • Store appearance
  • Customer service
  • Product quality, range and freshness
  • Merchandising and branding

A key element of the program is that all participating businesses receive a copy of each mystery shopper's report, that includes the shopper's feedback, comments and observations.
