Joe Dayan '82 Gets a "Rose" from the Indianapolis Star

"When Dayan noticed a Nov. 15 item in 'Talk of Our Town' about Berkshire Florist closing, he recognized an opportunity." Joe Dayan is a 1982 graduate of DePauw University.

Guyett notes that a rent increase was a factor in the decision by the owner of the downtown shop, Robert Behning. "Dayan moved quickly and suggested his leasing director contact Behning with the idea of moving into City Market. The lease isn't signed yet, but it sounds like they are about to get the longtime flower shop open at City Market before Christmas."

Guyett concludes, "Give Dayan a rose for spotting a good opportunity."
