Brown Floral at 100 Years

Brown Floral at 100 Years

Brown Floral began as a hobby by Leon Brown in the Salt Lake City
Poplar Grove neighborhood.

In 1915 Leon had built his first greenhouse.
By the 1920s his business was flowering.

His entire family was at some time involved in the floral business. 
He started the kids when they were young.

Advertising was always an important factor in the business.

Today Brown Floral is owned and run by Rob Johnson and Tracie Drage.

I am presenting the history
of  the Brown Floral Company and family at the next
Poplar Grove Community Council meeting.
That's on Wednesday, April 22, 2015 beginning at 7:00 pm!
at the Pioneer Police Precinct, 1040 West 700 South in SLC.
Please join us and help Brown Floral celebrate 100 years of business.
