Husband and wife team David and Helen Rabaiotti have taken over the Card Connection Bath territory.
A former farmer, Mr Rabaiotti, who also used to help out in his wife’s local Post Office, now delivers Card Connection’s range of greeting cards to more than 100 stores in the region. Mrs Rabaiotti continues to run the local Post Office and helps prepare the deliveries for the Card Connection franchise on a part-time basis.
“David and Helen are used to being self-employed and are experienced in working in customer facing roles,” said Andrew Cutler, Sales Director of Card Connection. “This background will ensure they can get up and running quickly, to build relationships with their franchise territory’s existing retail customers and therefore maximise the profit from their new venture.”
Mrs Rabaiotti said: “We were familiar with Card Connection’s range of greeting cards and gifts as the old franchise owner delivered them to the Post Office. We knew the products were always particularly popular and sold well, so when the franchise became available, we jumped at the chance to branch out. We also liked the fact that there is plenty of scope for expansion and are looking forward to growing the business over time.”
