{ Team Fleuriste Spotlight } Sal

Today’s feature is The Man.The Myth.The Legend…Sal! This friendly guy does not have the word “stranger” in his vocab, everybody is Sal’s friend!

This character is a notorious joke teller, this cheerful man is behind the wheel for The Fleuriste driving our trucks and helping us with any number of odd jobs around the store. He knows every back road in town, the dirt on every family you’ve ever heard of, still uses a flip phone and has a heart of gold! We can’t wait for you to meet our Sal Pal!

What is your favorite part of your job? I love working with the other members of the team. I also love to deliver flowers to the ladies who are home and see their smiling faces! #charmer 

What does a typical work day look like? When I first get to work, I’ll see what we have on the calendar for the day and get my instructions. Each day is different, which keeps it interesting for me.

What’s your favorite thing to do when you aren’t working? I like to mingle! { THIS is why he rocks! Always ready for a great time! }

Where did you work before The Fleuriste? Right before coming to The Fleuriste, I worked at Michael’s Florist for eight years to the day. Before that, I was retired but before that, I was in the restaurant business. My late wife and I owned “Sissy’s Tea and Luncheon Room” in the First National Center. She wouldn’t let me in the kitchen { wonder why? } so I worked the front of the restaurant while she was in the back, I guess you could call me the customer relations guy!

Do you have a { clean and short } joke you can share with us? We can’t technically put what he said in writing but just know it was hilarious!
