November 20, 2013 // Franchising.com // Leading greeting card publisher and franchisor, Card Connection, has announced today that it has rolled out its latest festive range. The company’s network of 68 UK franchisees is currently supplying retailers all over the country with the new Christmas designs of greeting cards, gift and bottle bags, roll-wrap and tags.
"This year, our designs are stronger than ever, which we believe will, in turn, deliver even stronger sales for our retail customers and franchisees alike," explains Michael Johnson, managing director, Card Connection. "We have a broad selection of 30 new single card designs suitable for general sending and a similar number for those all-important relatives. With money wallets too, plus a selection of boxed cards and cello packs, we feel we’ve got everybody covered!
"New gift and bottle bag designs will help encourage linked sales," continues Johnson, "while roll-wrap and tags complete the offering. With franchisees supplying display equipment on free loan to retailers too, we are sure to make a great display of Christmas this year!"
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.
For further information please see: www.card-connection.co.uk Territories currently available include: Devon, Dorset, Plymouth, Southend-on-Sea, Manchester, Cardiff, Southport/Wigan, Dundee/Kirkcaldy.
