Success By Design – K. Mike Whittle Designs Claims Top 25 Small Business for Second Year

May 26, 2016

This article is number 11 in a series of profiles of the Cobb Chamber’s 2016 Top 25 Small Businesses of the Year. Check back with Chamber Ink everyday in May for a new profile on a different Top 25 Business. We will wrap up the series on June 6 with the announcement of the 2016 Small Business of the Year.

K. Mike Whittle Designs (KMWD) is the go-to for stunning floral arrangements in Marietta. With a shop located in the historic Marietta Square, this full service retail florist offers same-day local delivery of custom arrangements with flair. Clients can order by phone, online, or in person at their charming shop in the Clarke Library building. Their team of award winning designers can work their magic on any event- from transforming full banquet halls to enhancing at home parties. While striving to relay the vision of each client, every single design is elevated by the KMWD touch.

K. Mike Whittle Designs spent three years building a client base and developing a strategy to advertise through community service and social media, but the business attributes most its growth through word of mouth. And the numbers don’t lie, each year the shop continues to add customers at an impressive rate.

The selection at KMWD is unmatched! The store considers it a point of pride when they can deliver what other florists cannot – stocking exotic tropicals and peonies throughout most of the year. Whenever a customer asks, “Do you have…,” Owner Mike Whittle’s favorite answer is, “Sure we do!” This approach to the florist industry is what keeps clients coming back time and time again for all of their event needs.
