Card Connection is part of UK Greetings, which is a subsidiary of the largest publicly owned greeting card publisher in the world. The company has a nationwide team of franchisees who supply Card Connection’s quality range of more than 1,500 greeting cards to retailers throughout the UK.
Card Connection is currently recruiting for franchisees that 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.
