Our History

Servicing San Diego For Over 30 Years

When Max Allen Levy and his wife Marilyn opened their first flower stand on a busy El Cajon corner in 1980, they could not have foreseen that this humble enterprise would flourish and grow into a widely respected San Diego institution.

It was Max Allen who helped the business evolve from a tiny outdoor stand to San Diego's premier florist. Under his guidance, Allen's Flowers and Plants has made its name as San Diego's premier florist by offering outstanding flower arrangements made by the cities top floral designers.

Max emphasizes creativity, hard work and customer service. To this day he will not hesitate to hop in one of the many company delivery trucks and personally deliver his prized floral arrangements to his clients. Max Allen and his son Brad are also one of the first San Diego florists to understand the importance of buying locally grown flowers and supporting San Diego's local farmers.

Today, our second generation family owned company is one of the nation's most highly regarded florists, with a worldwide online presence and four shops in and around San Diego - including a store directly across the street from where it all began.

Allen's Flowers has grown to be recognized as an industry leader and has been awarded a top 100 florist in the USA for several years now. This award is one of the most prestigious in the industry with over 36,000 florists competing for the honor. Locally, Allen's Flowers has been selected as the best florist in San Diego by the readers of the San Diego Union Tribune and signonsandiego.com for 8 years. Allen's Flowers currently handles several hotels and catering companies in San Diego and is most proud of serving as a preferred florist for the San Diego Convention center.

With over 30 years of experience and a reputation for the freshest world class flower arrangements, memorable events and unsurpassed service, Allen's Flowers and Plants continues to be recognized year in and year out as San Diego's best florist.
