Retirement Offers Franchisees Card Connection Chance

Leading greeting card publisher and franchisor, Card Connection has announced several of its long-serving franchisees are planning to retire, resulting in the chance to purchase several established franchise businesses. The Reading and Coventry areas are now new to the market and for the right candidates, provide the unrivalled opportunity to run a successful greeting card franchise with the full support of the market leader.



“As a business, we very much focus on building long term relationships with our franchisees, staff and retail clients alike,” explains Michael Johnson, managing director, Card Connection. “The average time a franchisee  stays with Card Connection is eight years and some for more than 20 years! John Byett who has run the Reading territory since 2011, was previously Card Connection’s IT manager for ten years and so literally knows the business inside and out. The new franchisee will benefit from his detailed knowledge as part of their handover of the territory which covers Hampshire, Berkshire and parts of Buckinghamshire. 

“Coventry is a more compact area and is also on the market due to retirement,” continues Johnson. “The business has been built up and thoughtfully run over the years and yet still offers the chance for development. Full training will enable the new franchisee to pick up the reins to get up and running quickly.

“Other Card Connection franchise territories which are currently available include Northamptonshire, also on the market due to retirement and Bath which is for sale as the franchisee has relocated and purchased another Card Connection territory,” confirms Johnson. “All these franchises present the prospect for an enthusiastic individual or couple to buy into a reputable business with its own established customer base, earning money from day one. Our proven business model has enabled hundreds of franchisees to run successful businesses over the past two decades.”
