Wrapped around the South and East of Manchester, this Card Connection territory includes a number of sizable well-known towns and large villages and so is, for the right person, ripe for development, in terms of sales growth.

At the centre of this territory, and home of the famous Hovis Bakery, is Macclesfield, with a population of over 56,000 people. Boasting a similar population is Altrincham, cited by the Sunday Times as the best place to live in the UK, back in 2020.

Other large population centres include the Greater Manchester town of Ashton-under Lyne, the Cheshire towns of Knutsford, Sandbach and Congleton, while in Derbyshire it covers the picturesque spar town of Buxton and the welcoming market town of Glossop.

With 120 trading outlets to service, including household names like Spar and Nisa, you’ll be guaranteed an income from day one, supplying Card Connection supply greetings cards and other accessories on a ‘consignment’ basis. For 30 years this business model has enabled hundreds of franchisees to run successful businesses while being their own boss but safe in the knowledge they have the support and dedication of an established, highly successful organisation behind them.

If you are a hard-working individual or couple, who are looking for the flexibility and benefits of self-employment and who live ideally in the territory, this could be the perfect investment.
Card Connection will supply all the training necessary plus a detailed hand-over and introduction to the retail client base which will ensure the new franchisee gets off to a great start.
