“We are honored to be named to the prestigious 2022 Fortune 1000 list. This reflects the dedication and hard work of our team members across the country,” said Jim McCann, Founder and Chairman of 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, Inc. “It is thrilling for me to see what began with a single flower shop transform into a multi-billion-dollar enterprise that is focused on inspiring our community of customers to give more, connect more and build more and better relationships.”
Jim bought and ran his first floral shop in Manhattan in 1976 with big ambitions. The store was initially named Flora Plenty, but after the company acquired the 1-800-Flowers phone number, the company was renamed.

Now, with Jim as chairman of the board, the company has grown into a unique e-commerce platform with more than a dozen gifting brands spanning gourmet food, personalized keepsake items, flora, and more.
In the last several years alone, the company has:
• Doubled the size of its business–with revenues exceeding $2 billion
