Usually it's our network of florists who handle each flower delivery with care. This time was a little different as Goquets' Happiness Representative Beau K. (@IamBeauTheBear) took on a new challenge to ensure the experience was quick and easy for our customers.
Watch: Beau delivers flowers
There's a lot excitement as we welcome our newest member. Mr. Beau Kodiak (he prefers to go by Beau K.) joins Goquets with a focus on managing customer happiness.
He came into Day 1 ready to impress with his black sport coat, which did not completely mesh with the casual vibe at Goquets. There's a lot for him to learn, however we've been impressed with his positive attitude and passion for delivering amazing flowers.
Beau K. prefers honey with his tea, which we'll start keeping on hand.
Team huddle with Shawn, Beau K. & Lyndsay.

Recently we were interviewed by Silicon Prairie News (SPN). This was so cool, because we just love story telling.
Silicon Prairie News, Sept. 25, 2015:
Goquets co-founders Shawn Harrington and Lyndsay Horgan want to improve the experience of purchasing flowers online.The company, founded during Ames Startup Weekend in 2013, exists to remove “guesswork” from the process by allowing purchasers to share their preferences, instead of pointing to a static photo, when placing their orders via the web or mobile devices....
There's nothing more frustrating for a hard-working florist than having to match a stock photograph. The flowers they have that are fresh and in-season may not match the hundreds and thousands of images people are buying from online.
What happens after they hit the buy button is sadder than Charlie Brown at Christmas:
Welcome to the brand new Goquets website! Thank you to everyone who has been with us since our initial launch in 2014. With your support, we’re proud to release the new look and the features you'll soon find from Goquets.
