Card Connection Markets Leicestershire Franchise

Leading greeting card publisher and franchisor, Card Connection, is now marketing its Leicestershire franchise territory, which also covers Coventry, parts of Derbyshire and Northamptonshire.

Mark Miller“The territory offers a new franchisee or enthusiastic couple the chance to become self-employed, delivering and merchandising Card Connection’s range of high-quality, popular greetings cards and accessories to around 120 established retail customers,” explained Michael Johnson, managing director, Card Connection. “As well as independent stores, the new franchisees will supply national accounts including such as Costcutter, WH Smiths Motorway Services, NISA, BP and Spar, using our award-winning business model.

“Our franchisees place the card ranges in retail outlets on a ‘consignment’ basis, which is one step beyond sale or return, as the retailer never has to buy the stock initially, only paying for what they sell,” added Johnson. “This creates a win-win situation for both retailer and franchisee and the concept has proved particularly popular for more than two decades.

“The current franchisee, Mark Miller, has been with Card Connection for eight years,” continued Johnson. “Mark and his wife are now aiming to realise an ambition of emigrating to New Zealand, which necessitates the sale of this established franchise business. Card Connection will provide full training, handover, plus all the ongoing support needed to get new franchisees up and running quickly and earning money from day one. Over the years, we have helped hundreds of franchisees run successful businesses and in 2015 Card Connection was a finalist for the British Franchisor of the Year award, recognising our efforts working with franchisees.”

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