Flowers and chocolate is a classic combination. Ideal for gifts for so many occasions, so it was an obvious to Chantal Coady OBE, owner and founder of Rococo Chocolates, and Andrew McAlpine, owner and founder of Rockflower, to collaborate by combining their two products and make them available to shoppers at TFL stations.
In a recent Q & A session Chantal said: Chocolate and flowers are an obvious combination, although they have rather different requirements in terms of selling them: flowers need lots of water, chocolate needs climate control and a dry environment, so there are also plenty of challenges trying to sell them together. Andrew has a brilliant mind and way of innovating so that these obstacles are no longer problems, I love the sense of innovation that Rockflower delivers, and the fact that you can buy from them instantly, 24 hours a day, whenever you have a whim to get beautiful flowers or chocolates in fact.
And Andrew commented: 2015 will see Rockflower move into three, if not four, other TFL stations in and around London and with that I am very thrilled to know that we are moving into these new locations with Chantal and Rococo Chocolates, which is such a fine complement because the proof of the matter is that people already like this combination in Blackfriars and I think that when we’re in other high profile areas, we’re going to find that this works even better together.
No doubt we will be seeing more of this natural combination in weeks and month to come. They are perfect together for Valentines, for Mother’s Day and for Easter. In fact it is hard to find an occasion when they are not!
