Under this new permit, innovative small businesses in Minneapolis that don’t fit into other permit categories can apply to the emerging business program and become a test project for their new concept.
After nearly six months of working closely with the City of Minneapolis, we established the Innovative and Emerging Business permit. Ma Jolie became the pilot project, and our darling concept hit the streets in May 2018.
Proving just how irresistible our concept was turned out to be a piece of cake. Just four months after launching Ma Jolie, the City of Minneapolis officially passed the mobile flower truck business permit.
The rest, as they say, is history!
Most of the flowers are purchased from a local wholesaler, and several varieties are grown at the owner’s family farm in southwest Wisconsin! The flowers can last anywhere from 1-3 weeks.
Glad you asked! Coco is a 1959 VW pickup truck from California. We are the third owners, and she's been wonderful to us.
Oui oui! We do quite a few private events: grand openings, weddings, graduations, baby showers, bachelorette parties, launch parties, anniversaries...you name it!
Oui oui! Most of our products come from local makers, many of them women! If you'd like to be considered as a local producer, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be in touch!
We sell single stem flowers for build-your-own-bouquets, which means you create a design that’s personal, unique and all your own! If you’re unsure how to get started, our fleuristes are there to help! Also, we only accept CC!
This is it! We do not have a brick and mortar. Instead, our mobile market comes to you! We currently roam around Minneapolis and are exploring some eastern and western suburbs this summer! We started in May 2018.
