Breaking New Ground

Event Floral is pleased to announce the start of a major expansion and ground breaking of a new 5,000 plus square foot facility.

Event Floral is a full service florist specializing in custom designed flowers and décor for weddings and events. Founded in 2003 by Debra Quillen, a veteran of the local Rockford, Illinois floral industry, Event Floral is in its 14th year of business. Current owner Erin Stoffregen assumed ownership in January 2014, overseeing consistent growth, staffing increases, and new business offerings.

Event Floral will transition from the current 2,000 sq. foot workshop to a custom built, 5,000 plus sq. foot facility that will serve as a main headquarters for company operations. All floral, linen, rental, décor, and custom event work will be produced at the new facility, streamlining production processes and offering the ability for even more growth.

With more than ten years in the business, owner Erin Stoffregen has been with the company since its beginnings. “I have always shared the passion and vision for the company’s potential and this building expansion is the next logical step for our growth,” says Stoffregen. “The opportunity to design and build a custom facility from the ground up will allow us to better tailor our services, proceed to produce high quality floral and décor, and continue to position this company as a premier wedding and event vendor in the area.”

Work has already begun at the new building site, which is located in Loves Park, Illinois on Rock Valley Parkway. The project is estimated to take about eight months. McClellan Blakemore Architects has overseen the design and Oehlberg Construction will complete the build.
