Offered for sale is the Card Connection territory of Milton Keynes. Centred on one of the most successful local economies in the UK, it currently generates £79k from over 110 outlets. In addition to independent stores, these include a good balance of National Accounts with well-known brands like BP, Nisa and Shell, to name but a few.
The best known of the 20th Centuries ‘new towns’ and famous concrete cows, Milton Keynes had its detractors but is much-loved by its residents. Many years of higher than average economic growth has resulted in it being one of the fastest growing centres in the UK, so offers the right buyer a solid base for further growth and development.
Card Connection franchisees supply greetings cards 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.
In addition to Milton Keynes, the area also takes in Bedford, Biggleswade, Huntingdon and Rushden. As a well-established franchise with a healthy existing customer base, the territory offers a driven, hardworking individual, or partnership, an excellent opportunity to continue the development of this area.
Working from home, all you need is a good-sized garage (or equivalent) for stock, a van, mobile phone, iPad, and plenty of enthusiasm. Card Connection will supply all the necessary training plus a detailed hand-over which will include an introduction to every single customer which helps ensure the new franchisee gets off to a great start, earning income from day 1.
