George Raptis and William Dukas - 1956
For 4 generations, we’ve been florists. In 1910, George Raptis arrived from the small village of Perista, Greece at just 12 years old. He sold flowers on the street corner of New York City working 365 days a year just to have room and board. A few years later, his two brothers arrived and they opened up our families first flower shop - The Raptis Brothers Florist on the Grand Concourse. With only a 6th grade education, the flower shop thrived late into the 1950s.
