Oct 03, 2014


Ryan Freeman, creator of FloristWare and President of Florist 2.0/Strider SEO, was named one of the "Top 40 Under 40" by Canadian Florist.


The July 2014 issue of Canadian Florist magazine included an article that recognized the top 40 under 40 in the Canadian floral industry.


Candidates were nominated based on: work ethic; pursuit of training and education; leadership and initiative within their organizations and the industry as a whole; and ability to “give back” to the industry.

Generation Next - Canadian Florist


One of the people nominated was Ryan Freeman. In addition to being a fifth generation florist he is the creator of FlowerChat (the best online community for florists) and the president of Florist 2.0 (PCI compliant responsive e-commerce websites for florists) and Strider SEO (recognized leaders in internet marketing).

He is a true champion of the industry and has helped countless florists by sharing his knowledge of search engine optimization and social marketing. He is so skilled in these areas that he is a highly sought after speaker at industry events.

Ryan is also one of the nicest guys in the flower industry - in Canada or anywhere else - and it is great to see him recognized this way.
