Stoke on Trent – A Great Investment


Featured Territory of the Month – July – Stoke on Trent
Revolving around the two busy urban centres of Stoke and Crewe, this business actually spans four counties – Staffordshire, Derbyshire, Cheshire and Shropshire. As a result it offers a pleasing mix of customer types set in a variety of environments. The area has been diligently overseen by the present franchisee, and offers potential for growth for the ambitious and enterprising individual.
Stoke-on Trent is a federation of six much older towns forming a linear city almost twelve miles long. Stoke is situated about half-way between Manchester and Birmingham but adjoins the town and borough of Newcastle-under-Lyme.
This exclusive Card Connection territory currently has a turnover of over £55k. It has a well-established customer base of over 114 outlets consisting of well-known brands such as Spar, Bargain Booze and BP to name just a few. There is a good balance of both National Accounts as well as independent retailers in this area to get stuck into.
This is a great opportunity for a hard-working individual or couple who are looking for the flexibility and benefits of self-employment. 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 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.
Card Connection franchisees supply greetings cards and accessories 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.
Enjoy the flexibility of being your own boss, based at home, but with the knowledge, support and dedication of an established and highly successful organisation behind you. What’s the cost, goodwill is £13k added to that stock, Fixtures, Legal Fees & Training.
Card Connection is highly regarded by all the major bank franchising departments, and funding is available subject to status.
