About burton + Burton

About burton + BURTON

In the small back room of a wholesale florist, Maxine Burton was starting a revolution...

It was 1982 and she was working at Flowers, Inc. Wholesale, a floral distributor co-owned by her husband, Bob. Silver foil balloons had just been invented, and floral customers were starting to request them. She soon realized that the balloon imprinting process could be used to print a message or design on a balloon, creating a floating greeting card-a concept that would soon transform the floral industry and lead her to found Flowers, Inc. Balloons®. Her ingenuity has taken the company from a back room start-up to The World's Largest Balloon and Coordinating Gift Supplier®. 

in 2006, Flowers, Inc. Balloons® changed its name to burton + BURTON® to represent the extensive inventory of balloons, floral supplies, coordinating gifts, and home décor the company offers.

Some things are more important...

burton + BURTON® strives to be envrionmentally friendly in every way we can. Here are just a few of the ways we are working to help our world.

Earth-Friendly Products

At burton + BURTON®, we just launched a new line of environmentally friendly pot covers. Made from natural materials, these containers are biodegradable to minimize their impact on the environment at the end of their useful life.

  Recycling Resources
Recycling resource materials

We have been recognized by the government for our outstanding recycling program. We operate three balers in our facilities that recycle an average of 10,000 pounds of cardboard, paper, and plastic every day.

  Recharging our Environment

To help lessen our operation's impact, we invested in new headsets for our call center that pull their power directly from the phone. So, they don't require batteries, which can be difficult to dispose of or recycle. The new phones use 33% less energy than the previous system.

  Putting Down Roots

At burton + BURTON®, we have been recognized for our efforts to plant trees in and around our facilities' parking lots. This has reduced erosion and helped to limit storm water run-off.


burton + BURTON® maintains four permanent showrooms across the country, including one on-site at the corporate headquarters in Bogart, Georgia. The four showrooms total over 25,000 square feet of space. Collections and seasonal displays are arranged by the company's own visual merchandising team for customers and markets throughout the year.

Our Employees

With over 250 dedicated employees on staff to serve our valued customers, this enthusiastic team goes the extra mile to ensure that customers' orders bring complete satisfaction.

The burton + BURTON family extends beyond the Burtons and their employees. It is with much affection that Maxine and Bob embrace the families of their employees. The sacrifice and support that the families give, especially during peak seasons, is vital to their success. The Burtons enjoy time with these families throughout the year with picnics, parties, and other company-sponsored events.

Maxine and Bob frequently say that one of the things they take the most pride in is watching their employees grow and thrive. Celebrating weddings and birth side-by-side and enduring sorrows hand-in-hand, there is a bond that goes far beyond employer and employee. The only fitting word is family.
