Card Connection Markets Motherwell and Dumfries Territory

One of the word's largest card greeting card publishers, Card Connection, has announced availability of franchises in Motherwell and Dumfries. Read on to find out more about these opportunities.

Leading greeting card publisher and franchisor, Card Connection has announced its Motherwell and Dumfries franchise territory is on the market.

“Motherwell is a large town 12 miles south east of Glasgow that was once Scotland's centre of steel production,” confirms Andrew Henderson, regional sales manager for Scotland, Card Connection. “We are keen to attractCard-Connections.jpgCard-Connections.jpg an enthusiastic local individual or couple to take on this franchised business which has been established since 1995.

You may be looking for a new start after redundancy or simply be keen to be in-charge of your own destiny by running your own rewarding greeting card distribution business. “The advantage of joining Card Connection is that our franchisees use a proven system to service an existing customer base. They place Card Connection’s quality greeting cards in retail outlets on a ‘consignment’ basis. This means the stock and display equipment are installed on free loan to the retailer. This is one step beyond ‘sale or return’ as Card Connection retail customers never have to buy the stock initially, only paying for what they sell. The award winning merchandising service provided to retailers by local franchisees has proved popular with retailers all over the UK and Ireland and the proven business model has enabled 100s of franchisees to run successful businesses over the past two decades.

“The Motherwell and Dumfries franchise currently has a turnover of more than £70k with some further opportunity for development for the right candidates,” continues Henderson. “Card Connection is well known to all the major banks franchise units and so funding to purchase the business may be available subject to status. All training and support necessary will be provided to help you get up and running quickly and earning from day one.”

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.

Other Territories currently available include: Bath, Coventry, Reading/Windsor, Northampton, Plymouth, Oxford, Leicester, Liverpool, Ayr, Edinburgh and Ireland South.
