Card Connection's Cardfetti Explodes onto the Market
January 05, 2010 // Franchising.com // Leading greeting card publisher and franchisor, Card Connection's new launch, Cardfetti, has exploded onto the market! Created in conjunction with UK Greetings' gifting division, Cardfetti, are small packs of metallic confettis in various shapes. The range includes coloured stars, sliver and gold stars, hearts, a party mix and a Happy Birthday design.
"Cardfetti is the perfect add-on purchase for including inside special greeting cards like birthdays or Valentine's Day," explains Andrew Cutler, sales and franchise director of Card Connection. "Cardfetti can also be used as table decorations for events like parties and weddings."
Cardfetti – which retails at 79p - has a range of display options including clip strips or rack dispensers and will be available to retailers through Card Connection's franchisees on a consignment basis. This means the stock and display equipment is installed on free loan to the retailer by Card Connection franchisees and retailers only pay for what they sell.
This year, in addition to the quality greetings card ranges, Card Connection franchisees are also delivering the popular Voltz energy shot. Voltz is a healthy, sugar-free, low caffeine drink designed to maintain energy through a complex of amino acids and B vitamins.
Card Connection has limited vacancies for franchisees who are keen to run an expanding business. Successful candidates would ideally have some management experience as, once established, they would be expected to employ a small team, operate a warehouse and have several liveried vans on the road.
Because the franchise networks in the UK and Ireland are 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 £20,000 (+ stock) with earnings potential in excess of £50,000 per annum.
