Card Connection Franchisee Greets New Customers!

Leading greeting card publisher and franchisor, Card Connection, announced that Daryl Perkins has purchased the additional franchise territory of Hull.

Daryl PerkinsDaryl, who won the Company’s Franchisee of the Year award and also recently took over the Lincoln territory, will now 'greet' around 90 new retail customers in Hull, as well as his established customer base in Nottingham, Grantham and the surrounding areas.

Darren Hawkins, regional sales manager, Card Connection comments: “Daryl is pulling out all the stops to build his franchise business. His ambition, enthusiasm and energy set him apart. As well as the new accounts taken on through acquisition, he has also worked tirelessly to increase sales within his existing base of customers, whether it be adding additional space, analysing sales trends and re-planning displays accordingly, upgrading old fixtures to new and adding our new point of sale to add impact and theatre to attract customers." 

"From a staffing point of view, Daryl has also taken on a new merchandiser," continues Hawkins. "Former Card Connection franchisee, Charlie Huggard, moved areas and so we are delighted to welcome him back to Card Connection family as Daryl's already fully trained, part-time merchandiser! Daryl also employs a warehouse person to ensure the greetings cards are picked and packed correctly, ready for deliveries."

"Daryl and his team will now deliver Card Connection's quality greeting card ranges, including the best-selling licenced Disney designs and the ever popular, super-cute character Boofle to well over 300 retailers. As well as independent retailers they will supply Card Connection National retail accounts such as Costcutter, WH Smiths Motorway Services, NISA, BP and Spar."

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.
