Card Connection Offers Rare Franchise Opportunity

Leading greeting card publisher, Card Connection has announced that several franchise opportunities have recently become available. The company which last year celebrated 21 successful years in operation, has a complete franchise network in the UK so only already-established territories, purchased from an existing franchisee, ever come on the market.

It simply doesn’t come up every day!” explains Michael Johnson, managing director, Card Connection. “Areas which have recently become available for sale due to retirement or personal reasons include Kingston Upon Hull, Southport and Ayr/Kilmarnock all of which represent the prospect of buying an established franchise business which will earn money from day one.”

“Kingston Upon Hull is a substantial territory that stretches from the East Coast to Doncaster and is centered in Hull,” continues Johnson. “It has been thoughtfully managed by the current franchisee and has a well-balanced existing account base which has shown excellent loyalty to Card Connection over the years. It would be ideally suited to a hardworking couple as it holds further development potential.

“Southport/Wigan is for sale due to pending retirement and the territory consists of almost 100 retail customers which are evenly split between National Account and Independent stores,” confirms Johnson. “Ayr and Kilmarnock in Scotland, is an extensive territory and is only for sale due to health reasons. All these franchises offer scope for growth and an opening for pro-active individuals to increase the account base and maximise the full potential that currently exists.”

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. Through its franchisees Card Connection supplies about 12,000 retailers throughout the UK.

Card Connection is part of UK Greetings, which is a subsidiary of American Greetings Inc., one of the largest greeting card publishers in the world and has limited vacancies for franchisees that are keen to run an expanding business. 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 £7k + Stock + Card Connection fee with earnings potential in excess of £50k per annum.
