Not all our customers are in the food industry! Passion Growers supplies ethically sourced and environmentally friendly roses to supermarkets and grocery stores. Started in 2001, the company now ships over 200 varieties of roses to more than 5,000 stores around the country. With growth like that, they needed a new, larger refrigerated facility just outside of Miami, and they needed it quickly.
Griffin constructed a 60,000 square foot cold storage area for Passion, including insulated panels on the walls and ceiling. We also installed eleven Dade County-approved dock doors, as well as insulated personnel and horizontal slide doors within the facility. On this project we had a special time constraint: Valentine’s Day, the number one day of the year for flowers! Passion Growers absolutely had to have the facility up and running before the big day. We burned the midnight oil, worked Saturdays and Sundays, and got it done.
“Griffin has done an outstanding job helping us build new coolers, from the quality of the work to customer care. They really went out of their way to make us happy, and they did.” – Sebastian Guejman, Passion Growers
