Maidstone-3.jpgCard Connection franchisees provide 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.
Our Maidstone territory is ideally suited to an ambitious couple looking to enjoy the flexibility of being their own boss but with the peace of mind knowing they have the support, knowledge and dedication of an established and highly successful organisation behind them.
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 provides all of 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.
What’s the cost? The goodwill is £45k plus there’ll be additional charges for the stock, Fixtures, Legal Fees & Training.
