This exclusive Card Connection territory with a current annual turnover of over £134k is a fantastic opportunity for a new franchisee to take this established business forward into a new decade.
Card Connection franchisees supply greetings cards and associated products to retail outlets on a 'consignment' basis. This is one step beyond 'sale or return' as retail customers don't have to buy the stock initially; they only pay for what they sell. This proven, award-winning business model has enabled hundreds of franchisees to run successful businesses since the early 1990's.
This territory's compact size covers 165 trading stores including names like Spar, BP Simply Fresh, Bestway, Nisa, Keystores and also a number of independent stores. The territory covers a large geographical area which includes Dundee, Peebles, Stirling and Perth. An area of contrast and a beautiful place to work, Edinburgh the Historic Capital, enjoy the fabulous scenery of Fife and Perthshire and the famous St Andrews the home of Golf. Motorways run through the area giving fast transport links.
The vast majority of the customers are in the convenience sector, meaning they stayed open during the lockdown and cards continued to sell. Franchisees were able to post stock to customers until they were once again able to go out and merchandise them again.
The work is flexible so that the new owner can live anywhere in the territory. Great road networks makes it easy to travel round your stores and the contrast between the City of Edinburgh and the seaside towns mean every day is different from the one before!
There is growth potential through both new outlets and benefiting from any new stores being opened by National Accounts. In-store there is scope to expand displays and improve product mix/offering to grow sales.
The business has a superb range of products on offer, with new cards released every 2 weeks, as well as new seasonal ranges every year (Christmas, Valentine's, Mother's Day, Easter and Father's Day). Card Connection also works with an excellent National Account base.
The Edinburgh, Fife, Stirling and Perth territory is ideally suited for a couple or individual who is happy to employ help within the business. The right person will have the scope to open new sites and build sales with the peace of mind knowing they have the support, knowledge and dedication of an established and highly successful organisation behind them.
Working from home, (or a small business unit) all you need is a good sized garage (or equivalent) for stock, a van, mobile phone, iPad, and plenty of enthusiasm and passion! Card Connection will supply all the necessary training plus a detailed hand-over which includes an introduction to every single customer, helping to ensure the new franchisee gets off to a great start and income from day one. You will be supported in developing your business by our Scottish based Regional Sales Manager and staff at head office.
