Birthplace of Take That’s Mark Owen and way back in 1858, the very fish and chip shop, 0ldham is now home to a population of over 230,800.  Forming part of Greater Manchester, it was the first industrialised town in England, once producing more cotton Oldham-2.jpgthan anywhere in the world.  It also provided a young Winston Churchill his first step on the political ladder when he became the town’s MP in 1900. 

Today, this Card Connection territory boasts a turnover of over of £78k from over 190 outlets catering to a combination of rural and urban customers. The business is centered around Oldham and Rochdale, but also combines pleasantly with towns and villages in West Yorkshire, the territory offers a good balance of National Accounts and independent stores, including well-known brands like Blakemore, Booker and Nisa Stores. 

Card Connection franchisees provide greetings cards and other related products 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.

Our Oldham territory is ideally suited to an ambitious couple 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.

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 provides 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 one.

What’s the cost? The goodwill is £18k plus there’ll be additional charges for the stock, Fixtures, Legal Fees & Training.  Card Connection is highly regarded by all the major bank franchising departments, where funding is available subject to status.
