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.
The Ayrshire territory is ideally suited to an ambitious individual 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.
