Offered for sale is the thriving Card Connection franchise territory of Oldham.
Oldham is a town in Greater Manchester, amid the Pennines and between the rivers Irk and Medlock. It has a population of 230,800.
Boasting a current turnover of over of £83k, and currently growing at 11%, despite the pandemic, this territory has an attractive combination of rural and urban customers, the business is centred around Oldham and Rochdale, but combines pleasantly with towns and villages in West Yorkshire.
Supplying and merchandising our greeting cards and other related product to over 191 outlets, the territory offers a good balance of National Accounts and independent stores, including well-known brands like Bestway, Booker and Nisa Stores, to name but a few.
Card Connection franchisees provide 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.
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 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.
What’s the cost? The goodwill has just been reduced to £9,000 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.
