Longtime local flower shop Roses & More has relocated and its iconic mural building on Speedway and Craycroft demolished to make way for a drive-thru salad operation.
Roses & More is now located at 6170 E. Speedway, in the Monterey Village Shopping Center.
Frankie Lam, who has owned the business since 2011, said the new 2,200-square-foot space is bright and open and will be ready for walk-in customers soon.
“It’s a good location with lots of traffic and visibility,” he said.
This past year the business grew from about 25 deliveries a day, pre-pandemic, to about 40 a day now.
“People couldn’t go to nursing homes or hospitals or even visits,” said the shop manager Jessica Marie. “Deliveries were to loved ones they were unable to reach.”
Roses & More is taking online and telephone orders for bouquets and baskets of goodies by visiting rosesandmore.com or calling 751-4000. The shop delivers only in the Tucson area.
Its former spot, at 5501 E. Speedway, will soon have Salad and Go.
This will be the Phoenix-based company’s first location in Tucson.
The drive-thru-only shop has a mission to make organic food affordable and features 48-ounce salads for $5.74 with chicken or tofu.
Salad and Go is a privately owned company with more than a dozen locations in the Phoenix area.
