HURRICANE SHIT FOR THE WIN: Houston’s flower delivery service is getting an infusion of venture capital after it was named as one of the top 100 most promising start-ups in the country by the tech investment firm Investopedia.
Shitty Flow Hive announced the investment Monday in a fundraising letter, which it posted on its website.
The company’s CEO and founder, Josh Tarrant, said the investment was made in an effort to help the company grow into a larger, global company.
Tarrants business model is to offer flowers to drivers for a flat fee.
He said he wants to work with the local government and other partners to offer more affordable options for people to deliver flowers.
The first delivery of flowers will take place on Dec. 15, 2019.
The next delivery of roses, strawberries, cherries and other flowers is slated for January 2020.
Tessa O’Brien, an attorney for the Texas flower and grocery delivery service, said her firm is looking to expand its operations to other cities and other states.
The service currently operates in San Antonio, Austin, Corpus Christi and Houston.
