Bournemouth is the famous Jurassic Coast, England’s first and only natural World Heritage Site, where people come to enjoy 185 million years of our history. 

Card Connection franchisees supply greetings cards and accessories to retail outlets on a ‘consignment’ basis. This is one step beyond ‘sale or return’ as retail customers don’t have to buy the stock initially; they only pay for what they sell. This proven, award-winning business model has enabled hundreds of franchisees to run successful businesses since the early 1990’s.
This is the perfect opportunity for a hard-working individual or couple who are looking for the flexibility and benefits of self-employment. Working from home, you’ll need a good sized garage (or equivalent) for stock, a van, mobile phone, iPad and plenty of enthusiasm. Card Connection supplies all the necessary training plus a detailed hand-over, which includes an introduction to every single existing customer. This helps ensures our new franchisees get off to a great start, receiving an income from day one. Card Connection is highly regarded by all the major bank franchising departments, and funding is available subject to status. 

Enjoy the flexibility of being your own boss, but with the knowledge, support and dedication of an established and highly successful organisation behind you. What’s the cost? Goodwill is £17,400k + stock, Fixtures, Legal Fees & Training.
