Card Connection is Recruiting in Scotland!

Leading greeting card publisher and franchisor, Card Connection has today announced that it is ‘recruiting in Scotland’. Card Connection currently has the re-sale franchises of Ayr/Kilmarnock and Edinburgh/Borders and Lanarkshire available in the region.

Recruiting Scotland.jpg“Our franchisees tend to run their own Card Connection greeting card franchise for many years – some have successfully worked with us for almost 20 years!” explains Michael Johnson, managing director, Card Connection. “Therefore, due to retirement, it is unique that we currently have several re-sale franchise opportunities available in Scotland.

"A re-sale franchise offers the chance to earn an income from day one," confirms Johnson. “We provide all the necessary training and help with setting-up and the franchisee works with an established retail client base, representing the leading brand in the greeting card franchise sector."

Card Connection franchisees supply greeting cards and accessories in retail outlets on a ‘consignment’ basis, also supplying the display equipment free on loan if appropriate, minimising the retailers’ costs and maximising their profits.

This is one step beyond ‘sale or return’ as retail customers don’t have to buy the stock initially; they only pay for what they sell. Card Connection’s award winning merchandising service provided to retailers has proved popular all over the UK and Ireland.

“We currently have three, established, re-sale territories available in Scotland: Ayr/Kilmarnock and Edinburgh/Borders and Lanarkshire, “continues Johnson. “For anyone interested in learning more about becoming a Card Connection franchisee in Scotland we will be attending both Scottish Franchise Show on Friday 24 April at Hamilton Park Racecourse near Glasgow and Saturday 25 April at the Aberdeen Exhibition & Conference Centre.”

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.
