Scent & Violet and Amra Kolasinac are pleased to announce that the — florist in Houston has partnered with delivery app Favor. The on-demand delivery app serving Texans is under the ownership of HEB, a popular Texas company. Scent & Violet was increasingly aware of the need for fast on-demand delivery, specifically in the West Houston neighborhood. Unfortunately, the in-house delivery program was not designed to allow for rapid-response delivery. To keep the cost of the delivery down for customers, Scent & Violet would group same-day deliveries for efficiency. Having a hot-shot delivery service for low cost was just not possible. The Houston florist started looking into delivery companies that would provide fast, on-demand delivery of flowers.

The majority of the companies were traditional courier services considered offered on-demand delivery of either documents or food – none of which worked for the unique challenges of flower delivery. UberEats, DoorDash, and Postmates all offered food delivery in the area, but not much else. That is when a colleague suggested Favor, a company that originated in Austin, TX, and offered delivery of more than just food. In 2018, HEB, the largest private employer in Texas, bought Favor and expanded its delivery service to include grocery store items, wine, beer, and flowers.
A spokesperson for the florist explained, "This is where Scent & Violet saw the chance to help customers. The Favor delivery service operates in a local five-mile area and offers quick on-demand delivery of flowers. Favor delivery app supports our brick-and-mortar flower shop by meeting one of our customer's direct needs: last-minute flowers. You can order flowers from Scent & Violet via the Favor app during our regular business hours."
“Select any product you would like," she continued. "We offer bouquets of flowers only, bouquets in a vase, and a selection of our florist-designed arrangements, or plants. We even have candles, balloons, and plush bears."
