Card Connection Franchisees Purchase Welsh Territory

Leading greeting card publisher and franchisor, Card Connection has today announced franchisees for Bath, David and Helen Rabaiotti have purchased the Newport territory. David who was originally a dairy farmer in Wales will now supply 230 retailers with Card Connection’s extensive range of quality greetings cards and accessories from the couple’s new Abergavenny base.

I will employ two new part-time helpers to prepare the boxes of greetings cards ready for delivery and my wife Helen will also become much more involved in the business.

“However, this now means the Bath area is for sale and it is a great business for someone looking for a full time franchise in this established sector,” explains David. “The Bath territory is a fairly compact region covering the city, surrounding towns/villages and parts of Dorset. I have been able to improve the franchise since purchase and sales were up 4% in the past year and yet there are always further opportunities to develop the business for the right enthusiastic person!

“The great thing about franchising is that no direct experience is necessary,” continues David. “I come from a farming background and my wife ran a post office and yet with the right training and support from Card Connection we are proof that any motivated individual or couple can succeed!”

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.
