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 it’s name as San Diego’s number one 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.
