For a third time, Card Connection’s franchise owner in South West Wales has renewed his franchise contract.
Alun Mort joined Card Connection in 1995 and started out with a virgin territory that now supplies Card Connection’s greeting cards and gifts to around 200 stores in his area.
Michael Johnson, Managing Director of Card Connection, said: “Each of our franchise owners sign up for a limited period – usually five years. We are delighted that Alun has chosen to renew his contact with us for a third time and look forward to continuing to support him in running his business on an ongoing basis.”
Mort added: “Card Connection’s head office staff are always friendly and supportive. They provide a good range of quality products, which are regularly updated and refreshed. There is no denying it is hard work but I’m not sick of it yet. Being out on the road keeps me busy and I like meeting my retail customers on a regular basis, they are nice people and that counts for a lot.”
Mort’s territory covers a mix of urban and rural areas. He said: “There is a fair amount of travelling involved, so if I have to go along way, I’m usually up early. I run the business on my own so being organised, especially with call routes, is helpful, although anyone who knows me might be surprised that I have to manage this aspect of the job!
“I would definitely recommend the Card Connection opportunity to anyone considering franchising. Despite becoming a large company over the years, the Card Connection team still remain friendly and approachable and are always willing to listen when you have something to say.”
