Why Work At Kennicott?
We have a long and proud history. As an employee, you can be part of our story as well. Founded in 1881, we’re recognized as one of the oldest continuous businesses by The Illinois State Historical Society. Since then, we’ve grown to serve neighborhood florists, event designers, and mass retailers throughout the Midwest, East Coast, and Southeast. When you join the Kennicott team, you’ll be part of a long history of serving customers with pride and unmatched service.
Benefits of Joining Our Team
We have a deep-rooted reputation of outmatched customer service and the best selection of superior floral products across the Midwest, South East and the East Coast. Beyond offering a competitive salary, you’ll find a fun and friendly work environment where you’ll form relationships with customers you serve each day. Not to mention, our benefits include a retirement plan and optional 401(k) plan.
Kennicott employees don’t just work here — we’re owners of the company. For over 20 years, we’ve been 100% employee-owned through our Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). That means we take special pride in being the very best supplier in every market we serve, and our team embodies this ideology.
Our ESOP encourages pride in ownership, and discourages a buyout by investors who do not share our values. This plan empowers every employee, at every level, to take ownership and pride of their position. It really makes a difference.
