The Bouqs Company is an online flower retailer founded by college classmates John Tabis and Juan Pablo Montúfar that delivers flowers fresh from eco-friendly, sustainable farms to doorsteps nationwide. Tabis, a brand and strategy executive formerly with Disney, and Montúfar, a third-generation farmer, started The Bouqs Company in November 2012 to radically disrupt the global floral industry through a modern brand, responsibly-sourced flowers and a vertically-integrated supply chain. The Bouqs Company connects farms and a curated network of artisan florists directly to consumers, and disrupts the traditional supply chain by eliminating overhead costs like warehouses, importers, distributors, auctioneers and more. In turn, this model enables a superior product and redefines the experience and economics for both consumers and producers alike.
