Kaitlin and Maria Cauchon are a mother and daughter team who are owners of Photo Florals, LLC. Maria Cauchon is the creator of FrameStix®, a plastic frame that houses uploaded pictures, business cards, gift cards, and more. This versatile product allows retail florists to upsell creations and boost profits.
The idea stemmed from Maria Cauchon’s co-worker and friend being hospitalized for a long period of time. To send him well wishes, she took photos of all his co-workers and created an arrangement out of them. This was before smartphones were readily available, and the gift “brightened his world.” The product has been ten years in the making and launched at Floriexpo 2022.
