#A change in career for one couple

It was a case of fate for one couple from Cornwall. They were running a Londis store when they heard of a Card Connection franchise opportunity. The franchise had been supplying their shop with cards so they already knew that they supplied quality cards and gifts. So David and Marie Clements decided that Card Connection was a good business idea for them.

The couple loved being self employed, but they were looking for a new challenge so they decided that the franchise opportunity at Card Connection was the right one for them.

The couple sold their Londis shop and then bought a Card Connection franchise. They completed a week long training course at the head office. They then worked with the previous franchisee for a month to get used to how it worked and then took over completely.

They have never been short of encouragement and support and the franchise offers ongoing training if and when it is needed.

The couple are really enjoying their new roles as franchisees and they love the fact that the job allows them to travel around their area rather than being stuck behind a counter all day.

It has been hard work for David and Marie but they have no regrets about becoming franchisees.
