In their first physical Conference for three years due to the worldwide pandemic, the great and the good of greeting card franchisor’s head office staff and its franchisee network finally got to meet up again. It was great opportunity for colleagues to view new product, discuss the company’s future strategy and celebrate their recent business successes.
The conference was very much about looking ahead, so what better theme than adapting ‘Back to the Future,’ to ‘Embracing the Future’ as inspired by the series of blockbusting films? Attracting much attention was an iconic DeLorean car, as featured in movie franchise itself.
Following formal presentations on many aspects of the business, franchisees got to mingle at a ‘marketplace’ forum, where they could ask questions of the many staff from key departments of the company.
Lunch was followed by a number of fun activities and the evening culminated in a black-tie dinner, interspersed with awards for the some of the franchise network’s best performers over the last calendar year.
Franchisees left with a positive mindset, and very much looking with confidence to the future!
Card Connection is part of UK Greetings, one of the largest greeting card publishers in the country. Since the franchise network in the UK is complete, the available opportunities now consist of acquiring an already established territory from an existing franchisee. These vary in price according to their level of development but start at £21k + Stock + Card Connection fee with earnings potential in excess of £50k per annum.
