Card Connection Franchisees Renew Five Year Contracts

Leading greeting card publisher, Card Connection, has confirmed that three UK franchisees have renewed their five year franchise contracts, which enable them to continue to distribute Card Connection’s quality greeting cards and accessories to independent retailers and national accounts within their territories. In addition, Card Connection’s franchisee in Malta also renews for a further five years.

Mike Barber"We currently have 67 franchisees in the UK and Malta suppling around 13,000 retailers and we were named as finalist for the prestigious BFA Franchisor of the Year award earlier this year," confirms Michael Johnson, managing director, Card Connection. "Our focus is on building long-term relationships with our retail customers and franchisees alike and as a result, the average tenure of a Card Connection franchisee is now ten years and some for more than 20 years!"

"We are therefore delighted that Martin Cameron from Tonbridge, Mike and Diane Barber from Swindon, Jason Hook from Maidstone and David Farrugia in Malta have all chosen to renew their franchise contracts, and we look forward to
continuing to support them in their individual
franchised businesses."

"Card Connection is unique in the industry as, as well as many independent retailers and convenience stores, we work with nearly 100 Regional and National retail accounts such as Costcutter, WH Smiths Motorway Services, NISA, BP and Spar," continues Johnson. "This means all our franchisees have an established customer base. In addition, our greetings card ranges are second-to-none in terms of quality and design and feature some of the best-selling licenced product available including Disney and the ever popular, super-cute character Boofle.” continues Johnson. “This means all our franchisees have an established customer base.

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.

Territories currently available include: Bath, Coventry, Reading/Windsor, Northampton, Plymouth, Oxford, Leicester, Liverpool, Ayr, Edinburgh and Ireland South. For further information about franchises for sale, please fill out the form below.
