 About The Company


Founded in 1871, by the Podesta and Baldocchi families who came here from Italy looking for an opportunity to provide a better life for their loved ones. Today, Podesta Baldocchi remains one of the oldest businesses in San Francisco and one of the oldest, continuously operating floral design businesses in the United States.

There have been many changes over the past century-the company no longer uses a fleet of wood-panel vans and "Podesta Baldocchi" Packards known as "floralcars" to make deliveries, but the company is still known for its place in San Francisco and American cultural history. In fact, Podesta Baldocchi featured prominently in the 1958 release of Alfred Hitchcock's movie thriller "Vertigo."

Today, we are delighted to have the opportunity to offer this gem to the grandeur and elegance of old-world San Francisco while at the same time providing customers with excellent service and contemporary and innovative designs.

For more information please call (415)346-1300.
