EMILY FLOOD - FOUNDER OF SARASOTA PICNICS
Emily Flood- Owner of Sarasot Picnics

Meet the owner

 Hi! ​ My name is Emily Flood, and I am the owner and founder of Sarasota Picnics. I am originally from Frostproof, a small citrus town in Central Florida, but I grew up spending almost every summer on vacation on the West Coast of Florida. I fell in love with the Sarasota area and moved after I graduated from UF in 2019. 

My Inspiration behind picnic business was both nostalgia and need. Some of the most cherished memories I have were in my backyard with my family. We lived on a lake and would gather by an old oak tree watching the sunsets and solving the world’s problems. I wanted to give people the perfect setting to get outside, create memories, and reconnect. A pop up picnic is unique and fun for people of all ages. I take the hassle out of the equation and create a simple yet decadent atmosphere where all people have to do is show up and enjoy. Additionally, I saw a need for this type of business during the pandemic where many restaurants were either closed or had occupancy restrictions. People who are concerned about being in a traditional restaurant with other people surrounding them can relax in a secluded location yet still enjoy the simple luxury of being served a meal without doing the dishes afterward! In a pandemic driven new normal that has slowed us down and brought us outdoors, a pop up picnic is the perfect activity! If you have any questions about Sarasota Picnics, I would love to answer them in the below contact box! Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my small business. I hope to picnic with you soon!
