Stoke on Trent

S Saunders

This is an opportunity to acquire a top performing business which can be home based, supplying quality greetings cards and other gifting accessories to a valuable customer base. The area of operation revolves around the two busy urban centres of Stoke and Crewe and this business actually spans parts of four counties – Staffordshire, Derbyshire, Cheshire and Shropshire. As a result it offers a pleasing mix of customer outlets set in a variety of environments. The area has been diligently overseen by the present franchisee, and offers potential for growth for an ambitious and enterprising individual.

Stoke.jpgStoke is a federation of six much older towns, forming a linear city almost twelve miles long and situated about half-way between Manchester and Birmingham and adjoins the town and borough of Newcastle-under-Lyme.
This territory boasts a well-established customer base of over 125 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 your teeth into. This exclusive Card Connection territory currently has an annual turnover of over £54k and is only offered for sale in order for current franchisee to pursue his retirement.
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) to hold the stock, plus a van, mobile phone, iPad and plenty of enthusiasm! Card Connection will supply all of the necessary training, which includes a detailed hand-over involving an introduction to every single customer. This ensures the new franchisee gets off to a flying start, earning income from day 1.
