Four Card Connection franchisees purchase second territory in 12 months

Greeting card publisher and supplier Card Connection has announced that four of its franchisees have purchased an additional territory in the last 12 months. The fourth franchisee to double their territory size is Paul Davis. He owns the Chelmsford territory and recently acquired the Colchester territory.

Card Connection's Managing Director Robina Every says: 'The greeting card distribution franchises have always been particularly popular. However, Card Connection is seeing a growing trend where its existing franchisees are snapping up neighbouring territories if they become available. This allows franchisees to expand their businesses very rapidly - taking advantage of what is effectively a recession-proof industry.

'Before Paul joined the Card Connection network he was an experienced business manager and these skills have clearly allowed him to assess the potential in Card Connection's award winning franchise operation. Paul now operates both the Chelmsford and Colchester Card Connection franchise regions with his wife and two helpers.'

With the franchise networks in UK and Ireland complete, the only available franchise opportunities left are already-established territories that existing Card Connection franchisees wish to sell. The territories vary in price as they depend on the level of development. Prices start at £20,000 (plus stock) and have an earning potential in excess of £50,000 per year.
