Hillermann Nursery & Florist has again joined the ranks of the horticulture industry’s top local garden centers and has been named one of Today’s Garden Center magazine’s Revolutionary 100 Garden Centers for 2015. The company has made the list each year since the start of the program!
The Revolutionary 100 program, which began in 2006, surveys garden center owners and managers on how they run their businesses. These retailers compete in a variety of areas that reveal their business health and how they impact their local communities. The Revolutionary 100 is open to all local garden centers, large and small.
“It is such an honor to again be on the list of Today’s Garden Center’s Revolutionary 100. We feel it is important to keep things fresh and offer items, services, events and education that work with the trends of today,” said Sandi Hillermann McDonald, president of Hillermann Nursery & Florist. “Today’s Garden Center is one of the top publishers of media in our industry. They help us stay on top of trends and share with our colleagues across the country.”
To be considered for the Revolutionary 100 status, garden center owner and managers across the United States fill out an extensive online questionnaire covering topics such as customer and community service, management philosophy, marketing, use of technology, purchasing and profitability.
“The garden centers that made this year’s list are an exceptional group of forward-thinking independent retailers who understand that their customers constantly evolve and strive to provide what they need to succeed in the gardening lifestyle,” says Today’s Garden Center Editor Carol Miller. “We are proud to call them revolutionary.”
Hillermann Nursery & Florist has been named among the top 100 Independent Garden Centers in the United States by Garden Center Magazine, a leading media source in the green industry.
The Top 100 Independent Garden Center List, based on annual revenue reports, allows the magazine staff to get an in-depth look at the health of the green industry.
