Card Connection’s South West Wales Franchise Renews Contract for Third Time

Leading greeting card publisher and franchisor, Card Connection, has announced its franchisee for South West Wales, Alun Mort, has renewed his franchise contract with Card Connection for the third time.

Card Connections Franchise OpportunityPreviously a petrol station manager, Alun who joined Card Connection in 1995, started out with a virgin territory and now supplies Card Connection’s quality greeting cards and gifts to around 200 stores in the area.

“Each of our franchisees sign up for a limited period – usually five years,” explains Michael Johnson, Managing Director, Card Connection. “We are delighted that Alun has chosen to renew his contract with us for a third time and look forward to continuing to support him in running his business on an on-going basis.”

“Card Connection’s head office staff are always friendly and supportive,” explains Alun Mort, Card Connection franchisee for South West Wales. “They provide a good range of quality products which are regularly updated and refreshed. There is no denying it is hard work but I’m not sick of it yet! Being out on the road keeps me busy and I like meeting my retail customers on a regular basis, they are nice people and that counts for a lot.”

Alun covers a mix of urban and rural territory. He says: “There is a fair amount of travelling involved, so if I have to go along way, I’m usually up early. I run the business on my own so being organised, especially with call routes, is helpful, although anyone who knows me might be surprised that I have to manage this aspect of the job!

“I would definitely recommend the Card Connection opportunity to anyone considering franchising,” continues Alun. “Despite becoming a large company over the years, the Card Connection team still remain friendly and approachable and are always willing to listen when you have something to say.”

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

Since the franchise network in the UK is complete, the available opportunities now consist of acquiring an already-established territory from an existing franchisee. These vary in price according to their level of development, but start at £20k (+stock) with earnings potential in excess of £50k per annum.
