About Card Connection
franchise

Card Connection is one of the foremost greetings card distribution franchises in the UK. It is a proven system where franchisees supply ranges of greetings cards in retail outlets using a 'consignment' approach. This means the stock, and the display equipment it sits on, are installed on free loan to the retailer.

This system goes beyond the classic 'sale or return' system, as Card Connection clients don't have to buy stock upfront; they only pay for the items they sell. Card Connection franchisees provide an award-winning merchandising service, and the company has an unrivalled reputation in the convenience sector.

The nature of convenience stores enables Card Connection franchise owners to work to a flexible schedule. Typically, a franchisee will visit each of their clients within their territory once a month to replenish and maintain stock.

Training and support provided

Card Connection is committed to walk with its franchises every step of the way. Your process would begin with a fully comprehensive training programme over the first few weeks, covering everything you need to know about the business using a combination of in-class training and learning on the job.

In addition to this primary training, you will receive ongoing support from a Regional Sales Manager. They will work in a mentoring capacity, providing additional support and encouragement, as well as assisting with business development and growth within the territories they are assigned to.

Franchisees in the Card Connection network are encouraged to have regular meetings with franchise owners from other territories. Biannual regional meetings are held to promote this, wherein franchisees can share helpful practices and experiences with one another to boost everyone's overall success.

The ideal Card Connection franchisee

Card Connection is on the hunt for individuals, couples and business partners who possess a strong entrepreneurial desire. Anyone who wants to start their own business, or take on ownership of an existing business and inject some fresh enthusiasm into it, is a potential candidate for a Card Connection franchise. If you are looking to be your own boss, work to your own schedule and put the legwork in to make a success of your business, then Card Connection would love to hear from you.

Card Connection's history

Card Connection was established back in 1992, and quickly grew to become one of the largest card publishers in the UK. They are now a true leader in the market of franchise distribution for greetings cards.

It won full membership to the British Franchise Association as far back as 1995, and it has developed into one of the UK's most respected franchise operations. In 2008, Card Connection became affiliated with UK Greetings Limited (UKG), a giant in the UK card publishing industry. It also joined the British subsidiary of American Greetings Inc, which is the largest public-owned greetings card company in the entire world.
