Card Connection franchisees seeing results

Graeme Ewing took over the Ayr/Kilmarnock area for Card Connection in December 2009. Already, he has acquired 16 new accounts meaning he provides for over 100 different stores. Andrew Orr joined Card Connection 15 years ago and is responsible for the Aberdeen/Inverness area. He has seen a 16 per cent sales increase so far this year compared to 2009.

Card Connection’s franchise director, Andrew Cutler said:

"Some of our Northern based franchisees are being particularly proactive in seeking new business and this is yielding profitable results. However, as well as securing new accounts, our franchisees have been focused on selling some of our higher price point, luxury greeting cards. Because of their distinctive designs these cards are popular with retailers and consumers alike and handmade card sales for example, are currently up by 253% in Graeme Ewing's region."

Card Connection is a card publishing franchise, distributing greetings cards to stores. There are a number of vacancies available for keen candidates with management experience. Those winning a franchise would be in charge of a small team and warehouse and would have several vans out dispatching cards to stores.
