Ron was already deeply involved into e-commerce as he had previously launched various websites relating to online hotel booking, tourism and skiing like www.skilebanon.travel. Not to mention his passion for the internet and for revealing the secrets of the world wide web.
Back in 2006 while tourism was at its lowest in Lebanon, Ron decided to diversify and launched www.FlowersToLebanon.com. Within a month, orders started pouring as the site became more and more popular on search engines. Guess why
While living in Dubai, Sandra was intensely implicated into design, fashion, colors, flowers, and everything that is beautiful. She couldn’t stop helping friends selecting their bouquets and planning their events. That’s how Sandra started www.FlowersDubai.co.uk and added much more than flowers to include cakes, balloons and gift experiences. She now runs orders and maintains the products throughout yooppys.com network.
It is said that Jimmy once succeeded in selling ice to eskimos! Through his excellent sales and negotiation techniques, Jimmy made it possible to grow yooppys.com to include more countries in the Gulf and the Levant. A true business development guru and marketeer.
All three met, the idea that started in 1996 grew over the years to reach 6 successful flowers websites and the partner’s aim is still high as their next plan is to cover the world, working with passionate local operators.
In 2011 came the idea of launching yooppys.com, which is a consolidating corporate website that encompass all the websites and that explains the fundamentals of the business.
Each site of the yooppys.com network delivers to one specific destination or country because, unlike other online florists, we do not deal with intermediary suppliers and other online networks; we go directly to the main source of flowers and gifts to provide our customers with the best prices while having a full control over the quality. Besides that, all services are adapted to that country manners, habits, events, and specificities – that are completely different even within the same country.
