Tim and Tom Ansilio
Tom Ansilio Sr.

Flower Tent® was founded by Tom Ansilio with the assistance and guidance of his father, Tom Sr. in 1992 with a single location in Wyoming, PA.  After having a profoundly successful Easter with the first Flower Tent location, he decided to open a second location in Kingston, PA for Mother’s Day and the Spring season. In a very short time, it was evident how much demand there was for Flower Tent®. Over the following year Tom opened 11 locations. In 1995 Tom’s brother, Tim, joined Flower Tent® and they continued to add locations every year.  Flower Tent® has over 70 locations in California, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Nebraska, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, and Texas.

The objective of Flower Tent® is to become the leader in the seasonal retail flower business throughout the United States. We will do this through:

  • Supplying our stores with the best quality flowers and plants at the fairest prices.
  • Selling happiness to our customers by helping them choose the best quality plants and flowers for their homes.
  • Helping our franchisees be successful in their business with training and mentoring in all aspects of their business.
  • Giving back to our communities, helping to make them a more beautiful place to live

With our guidance, you will learn all the tools and steps necessary to become a successful part of the Flower Tent® family. We look forward to working with you and helping you succeed.
