Connect with Franchise Success in Plymouth

Leading greeting card publisher and franchisor, Card Connection has today announced that its Plymouth franchise is on the market. The opportunity offers potential franchisees to connect with success by delivering and merchandising Card Connection’s extensive range of quality greeting cards and accessories to almost 125 established retail customers in the region.

“The Plymouth greetings card franchise will suit a hard working franchisee or enthusiastic couple who are keen to run their own business,” continues Johnson. “Goodwill, stock and display equipment is included in the purchase price of the franchise and full training and extensive support will be provided. Card Connection is recognised by all the major banks’ franchising departments and therefore funding is available subject to status.

“The successful franchisee will supply greetings cards and accessories to retail outlets on a ‘consignment’ basis,” explains Johnson. “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 has this year been named as a ‘British Franchise Association Franchisor of the Year Award finalist’ for this proven business model, which has enabled hundreds of franchisees to run successful businesses over the past two decades.”

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 around 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.
