Card Connection has recruited a new Scottish franchise owner to take over the establish territory of Glasgow and Fort William.

As the owner of a Card Connection franchise, Elaine Anderson will deliver the company’s range of greeting cards and gifts to retailers across her Glasgow and Fort William territory.

Anderson said: “I was looking for a new challenge and Card Connection ticket all the boxes. The business offers a solid cash-flow opportunity and stunning products. The Glasgow and Fort William territory is a mix of urban and some particularly rural areas and even includes several island locations. I will get to see parts of Scotland I’ve never seen before! I am really looking forward to ‘going for it’ and developing the area further by running it as efficiently as possible.”

Before joining the Card Connection franchise, Anderson was a Contract Manager for Skills Development Scotland and Scottish Enterprise for around 10 years before taking a break to re-evaluate her options. A visit to the franchise exhibition in Scotland sparked her interest in franchising and an ad in the local paper alerted her to the Card Connection opportunity, which had become available. Following her training, Anderson will complete the handover from the outgoing franchise owner, who is migrating to Australia to live closer to family, towards the end of June.
