San Diego Based Company Aims to Expand Nationwide at the Franchise Business and Opportunities Expo at the Del Mar Fairgrounds
Plantopia, a leading purveyor of indoor tropical plant services throughout Southern California, is committed to expanding across the country over the next five years. Plantopia recently participated in the Franchise Business and Opportunities Expo at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in San Diego, revealing an ambitious plan to franchise its rapidly growing brand. Their mission is to empower interior plant technicians and gardening enthusiasts alike, imparting insider tips, educational training and occupational skills to beautify indoor spaces everywhere.
Industry professionals and aspiring entrepreneurs attended the event over the weekend of January 24 and 25, exchanging legal and financial advice. Plantopia President Kamran Moradi presented a low-cost investment opportunity, sowing the seed for affordable franchising. In late October at the West Coast Franchise Expo of Anaheim, Moradi announced the launch of Plantopia’s first franchise in Irvine, which is currently operational. Existing clients in Orange County include Million Dollar Tan, Think Ink Marketing, Covidien, 1Stop Pool Pros and MediaMix365 among others. In addition to showcasing the development of his own brand, Moradi also partnered with 1Heart Caregiver Services, a senior care company, which conducted an educational seminar on “Transitioning from Employee to Employer” (www.1heartcares.com).
Plantopia staff and advisors have over 30 years of experience in the interior tropical plant industry. Collaborators include PlantRepublic.com, Garden Tapestry in Seattle and San Diego Interior Plants. Adding greenery and tropical foliage with everything from orchids to Bromeliads creates a sustainable environment, which not only enhances aesthetics but also elevates morale, softening an otherwise sterile workplace or brightening the spirit of any home. Exotic floral displays and living walls promote a tranquil, healthy atmosphere.
Plantopia considers the lighting, climate and traffic patterns, carefully selecting each plant for the appropriate space and following through with highly specialized care whether it’s a commercial office, retail store or an expansive resort. They’ve worked with the legendary Hotel Del Coronado for nearly a decade, Embassy Suites La Jolla for 12 years and recently spruced up the corporate headquarters for both Time Warner and CrossFit. From lobbies to living rooms and malls to hospitals, Plantopia provides unmatched expertise, personalized attention and regular maintenance.
