The Delaware Valley Floral Group (DVFG) has reached an agreement to acquire the Paramus, New Jersey branch from Kennicott Brothers. DVFG will acquire certain assets of the company through an asset purchase agreement.

We are happy to announce that several members of the Kennicott-Paramus team will be joining DVFG, including salespeople, buyers, and office personnel. Our company and its position in the market have been strengthened by this acquisition”.
