The Founder and CEO of 1-800 Flowers

Image of Jim.jpgJim F McCann, founder and CEO of 1-800-FLOWERS, remembers when he had no money. He was from a lower-middle-class family. He says “One of the joys of financial achievement is not having to worry about the little clings.”

Mr. McCann has been in the floral industry since 1976 when he began building a chain of retail flower shops in the New York metropolitan area.

He is a quiet cozy person and very uncomfortable talking about his own wealth. He addresses hinself as 'we'. McCann has always been careful to live below his means.

He says that he was started off as small entrepreneurs and were self-financed, as opposed to the silver-spoon entrepreneurs.

1-800-FLOWERS.COM also partners with such companies as Microsoft, Yahoo!, and Google to sell its products, which include gift baskets, gourmet foods, popcorn, greeting cards, home and garden items, and toys.
