Lunch Lady Podcast
Jane chats with Louise from Lunch Lady magazine
Founder of Bb*, Jane Marx chats with Louise Bannister from the beloved Lunch Lady Magazine and podcast.
“Jane spent years establishing a thriving hospitality-based social enterprise that employed young refugee women. Then the pandemic struck. With a newborn under her arm, she pivoted the business and created The Beautiful Bunch. Jane’s story from hopelessness to success (all while nursing a newborn) is an incredibly inspiring reminder for us all to keep going, even when everyone tells you not to.”

Bb* expands into events
Jane and The Beautiful Bunch team were invited to pitch at The Funding Network Australia’s live crowdfunding event, where they walked away with $37,000 to keep the enterprise going and expand into event floristry.
“On the night we didn’t have a figure in mind and I hadn’t been able to do any kind of pre-fundraising because we have been so flat out. We were just hopeful that we’d go and get $20,000… and then to raise nearly double that was phenomenal,” she says.

The team at BB, have been such a delight to be a customer with. I ordered Mother’s Day flowers a month early. The constant communication and update on the day of delivery and the day after was professional, warm and authentic. I love what the team at BB are about and so glad a friend introduced me to them. Keep up the great work changing and empowering lives of women while spreading joy and love.
What an amazing company to deal with. I’m in NZ and I’ve been ordering flowers from The Beautiful Bunch for a few years and always very impressed with the gorgeous flowers delivered to family in Melbourne. Thanks so much for all your wonderful help on the last order, that I managed to get so wrong and you worked so hard to get it right again for me!
I ordered flowers for my friend for her birthday. She absolutely loved them and said that they are the most beautiful arrangement she has ever received. What an amazing social enterprise! I will be ordering again!
