History[edit]

Vikaas had gained some experience in the flower business having helped out his florist Uncle in Kolkatta during his early days. When he sent flowers to his girlfriend in 1994, the florist did a poor job and Vikas believed he could do better. He opened his first shop in Delhi South extension. It took FNP 9 years before it finally broke even at 2003.[3]

Though originally a flower retailer, it has also expanded into the E-commerce sector with various online Ventures such as FNPcakes[4]

PropShop store[edit]
