Brighton and Eastbourne Card Connection Franchise on the Market

Leading greeting card publisher and franchisor, Card Connection, has today announced that its Brighton and Eastbourne territory is on the market. With annual sales of over £100K, this franchise represents an exciting opportunity to purchase an established business with further potential to expand.

"Brighton and Eastbourne is an affluent area,” confirms Andrew Cutler, sales and franchise director, Card Connection. “The territory stretches from Pevensey to Portslade on the south coast and up to Burgess Hill and Crowborough. Turnover and margin has been developed significantly by the current franchisee and 165 retail outlets are regularly supplied with Card Connection’s quality greeting cards and gifts. However, there is still further potential to expand the business.”

Card Connection’s team of franchisees hand pick and deliver greeting cards from a range of 1,500 innovative designs including: Santé, humour, handmade and special occasions cards. Using a proven system, franchisees place greeting card ranges in retail outlets on a ‘consignment’ basis. The award winning merchandising service provided to retailers by local franchisees is second to none and has established the company’s excellent reputation especially within the convenience sector.

The Franchisees also merchandise stock within retail outlets to ensure seasonal product is always up-to-date and displays look fresh and appealing to consumers. As well as many independent stores, Card Connection franchisees also supply other key national accounts in this way, including the likes of: BP, Costcutter, Londis, Netto, Budgens, Spar, Haldanes and WHS Travel.

Card Connection is part of UK Greetings, the largest publicly owned greeting card publisher in the world and has limited vacancies for franchisees who are keen to run an expanding business. Successful candidates would ideally have some management experience as, once established, they would be expected to employ a small team, operate a warehouse and have several liveried vans on the road.

Because the franchise networks in the UK and Ireland are complete, the available opportunities now consist of acquiring an already-established territory from an existing franchisee. The investment required to purchase the Brighton and Eastbourne territory is £37,500 (+ stock & display equipment) with current gross profit earnings of over £50K per annum.
