Our Fruity Story
Fruity Bouquets began back in 2009 from a kitchen table in Bridgend, South Wales. Initially fresh fruit bouquets were created for friends and family of the owners and quickly became so popular that the creation of the distinctly healthy, and eye-catching alternative to floral gifts quickly turned into a fully fledged business.

Following the take over in 2016, A complete re-brand began, Fruity Bouquets had previously been known as Fruity Bouquets R US, and after much deliberation, it was decided that to coincide with the companies fresh new approach the "R Us" would be dropped and the company was officially renamed and the new company logo and colour scheme was launched to coincide with the re-brand in 2017. A brand new e-commerce website was also introduced at this point. During 2017 new franchised branches were launch in Newport , Merthyr , Pontypridd , Rhondda and Swansea.
