The Bouqs Company, a Marina Del Rey, Calif.-based direct-to-consumer floral delivery company, raised $30M in growth financing.
The round was led by new investor Yamasa, a multi-national enterprise business based in Japan, with participation from Pontifax AgTech and existing investors Partech Partners, Azure Capital Partners and Next Equity, among others.
Founded in 2012 by John Tabis, Chief Executive Officer, The Bouqs Company is an online floral retailer that delivers flowers from eco-friendly, sustainable farms to consumers, nationwide, via a curated network of artisan florists.
The company intends to use the funds to further the development and growth of new services including the launch into brick-and-mortar retail and its existing subscription and wedding businesses, and expand into international markets, starting with Japan.
