Car Connection franchisee introduces retail experience to Bournemouth and Dorset
Popular greeting card franchisor and publisher, Card Connections, recently announced that it has recruited a new franchisee for Bournemouth and Dorset. Andy Burchell controls about 130 retail accounts and will now merchandise and deliver the wide range of greeting cards and gifts from Card Connections to outlets.
Andrew Cutler, sales director of the franchising company, said that Andy Burchell has experience in retail as he held the position of petrol forecourt manager with Esso previously. He has also worked with The Park Garage Group so his understanding and knowledge of a retailer’s perspective is sure to be valuable for merchandising and supplying Card Connections stock.
Burchell said that he enjoyed the flexibility that self employment brought and the chance of buying a Card Connections franchise was appealing. He also said that the company’s range of about 1,200 greeting card designs is great and that it will be received well from the retail side. He added that he is keen on expanding his business by bringing in more retailers to receive these quality products.
Card Connections is one of the largest greeting card publishers in the UK and is a leader in franchised distribution of these cards. With a proven system of providing retailers with consignments, franchisees will be able to expand their business in a better way.
