This is a good reflection of the Card Connection business because at least 50% of our Franchise Network falls into the “Olderpreneurs” bracket, age has no boundaries or limitations.
All that is required is the natural ability to sell, lots of energy, enthusiasm and passion. We currently have 56 franchisees and our operations has been designed to allow franchisees to create a solid and profitable self-employed business. Our greeting cards are a real and quality creative product that connects people.
Card Connection’s network of franchisees work at the sharp end of the business, merchandising over 12,000 displays across the country and dealing with the many challenges especially in today’s climate. A Card Connection franchisee enjoys the flexibility of being their own boss with the knowledge and dedication of an established and highly successful organization backed by a multinational corporation.
Card Connection is part of UK Greetings, which is a subsidiary of American Greetings Inc., one of the largest greeting card publishers in the world.
