Upon graduating from Gonzaga University with a degree in Marketing, Terri Stravens started Just Roses Plus in 1992 with one small store in Spokane with the niche of specializing in roses. The concept took off and soon her stores grew to three locations in Spokane, WA, Spokane Valley, WA, and Coeur d'Alene, ID.
Terri's education never stops, as she continues to educate herself in all the latest floral trends and latest techniques of floral care and handling. With family in Belgium, she is inspired by European Designs and quality.
Terri lives in Spokane with her husband and Step-son and is surrounded with family who routinely help on big floral holidays. Uncle Gary flies in from Tucson, AZ and Mom and Dad make the trip from Montana. If all the Just Roses Plus Drivers are busy delivering, a call to Sister, Cindy, is always good in a pinch. This emphasis on family is how Terri runs her business with both employees and customers.
"You can get beautiful flowers at many flower shops, but it is the experience and how you are treated that makes a difference. At Just Roses Plus, we like to treat our customers as we would family."
