"Technology is ever-changing, and we're having a lot of fun experimenting with alternative flower delivery methods, such as our successful flowers by drone delivery. We're also testing other unique delivery methods such as trucks carrying pre-made bouquets for rapid delivery and developing other guarded secret methods. We want to offer new and exciting experiences to our customers, so we're asking for their help to keep our products innovative and relevant."

FlowerDeliveryExpress.com is launching a consumer beta program to test alternative delivery methods and other development efforts with a select group of customers before going to market. Consumers can sign up for the beta test group at www.FlowerDeliveryExpress.com/beta. Participation is not guaranteed, and you must be a U.S. resident.
