Holiday Foliage produced exact replicas of some 800 trees “lost at sea”
for Guess in a little more than a week.
“It was a unique situation, but because we have our own factory,
we can turn it around very quickly.”
By the next day, Holiday Foliage—thanks to Project Manager Jeff
Eggen—had a counter sample photo for Guess to approve. The trees
were almost exact replicas of those originally ordered from the other
vendor. Holiday Foliage produced and delivered them in time for
the season, leaving a notably good impression on Sandoval. While
Guess isn’t picky about vendor location, given the short lead time,
it certainly helped in this instance that Holiday Foliage was closer
and could produce the trees in-house, Sandoval says.
Working with various departments of Guess for the past eight
years, the company has provided palm trees, Christmas trees, gift
boxes, and specialty flowers for G by Guess, Marciano, and the company’s retail stores.
“We’ve been fortunate enough to work with Guess on several
Christmas and spring roll-out programs, mostly holiday stuff,”
