Card My Yard Achieves Significant 2020 Growth and Debuts in New Target Markets
Leader in Yard Greeting Services Surpasses 350 Territories and $14M in Sales
January 15, 2021 // Franchising.com // Austin, Texas - Card My Yard announced today a successful 2020. After months of navigating through a worldwide pandemic, the brand wrapped up the year with 193 new opened locations and 200 signed franchise agreements, with more than 94% of those agreements stemming from female entrepreneurs. With a 600% increase in sales Card My Yard is positioned for continued success in 2021.
“Card My Yard was founded with a mission to spread joy on a daily basis and this past year, that message and vision for our brand became more powerful than ever before,” said Jessica Stanley, co-founder and CMO of Card My Yard. “Americans faced a pandemic unlike one we’ve ever seen in our lifetime and being the go-to brand that could help families and loved ones celebrate – from a distance – milestones, birthdays and special occasions was extremely rewarding for all of us involved. We also saw people who had lost their jobs launch Card My Yard in their own town – many finally realizing their dreams of becoming small business owners and entrepreneurs. As we turn our attention to 2021, we’re excited to continue to make a positive impact in communities across the country and look forward to a bright future ahead for the brand.”
Looking to grow their footprint strategically across the country in 2021 and beyond, Card My Yard announced in October of 2020 a strategic investment by Princeton Equity Group. Recognized as a top-performing private equity firm with extensive experience in the franchise industry, Princeton Equity Group brings a plethora of resources and expertise that, together with Card My Yard, they will use to serve the brand’s growing list of franchise partners. Card My Yard also topped off the year by celebrating a major milestone – donating $25,000 to charities and non-profit organizations such as BCRF, Pop-Up, Birthday and Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
“In 2018, we launched Card My Yard Cares to raise funds for local charities and organizations that resonated with our customers and franchise partners. Since then, the number of participating franchisees looking to join our efforts has grown tremendously. That’s why in 2021, we will be expanding our outreach program to include a different charity each month of the year,” said Amy Arnold, co-founder and CBO of Card My Yard.
