Scottish Card Connection Franchisee Expands Territory

Leading greeting card publisher, Card Connection, has today announced that David Roseweir, franchisee for Stirling and Perth, has acquired the Dundee and Kirkcaldy territory from David Fyffe, who now retires after 10 years as a franchisee. David Roseweir’s wife Dawna will now help him run the expanded territory, supplying quality greeting cards and accessories from Card Connection’s extensive range to more than 300 retailers in Scotland.

“I first joined Card Connection in 2007,” explains David Roseweir. “Previously I was a franchisee for Esso but when it became a company owned operation, it was time for a new challenge. Card Connection used to supply the Esso station and the set-up impressed me from the outset.

“Since start-up, I have gradually grown my Card Connection franchise, originally acquiring Stirling and Perth, then adding Edinburgh in 2009,” continues Roseweir. “Now I have added a further 100 retail outlets to my customer base by purchasing the Dundee and Kirkcaldy territory.

I am really excited about continuing to develop the franchise and building the business, now in partnership with my wife.”

Michael Johnson, managing director, Card Connection, comments: “We are delighted that David has chosen to expand his franchise in this way and the team is looking forward to supporting the couple in their new venture. There are also various opportunities for other individuals or couples who are interested in running a Card Connection franchise, including the Ayr/Kilmarnock franchise which has recently become available. This represents an opportunity to acquire an established franchise business in East Ayrshire, including the second largest town in Ayrshire.

Card Connection is one of the UK’s largest card publishers and is the market leader in the franchised distribution of greeting cards. The Business’ unique model of consignment sales has resulted in a strong brand and established reputation which has been proven over many years and in 2013 Card Connection celebrated its 21st year in operation as a franchisor. Through its franchisees Card Connection supplies about 12,000 retailers throughout the UK.
