When Thayalan Markandu took over the Card Connection franchise for Middlesbrough, he already had a head start on most of the new franchisees that had gone before him.

“I bought part of an area owned by long-standing franchisees Vicki and Andy Thompson, and they gave me a brilliant in-depth hand-over briefing,” explained Thayalan. “Their customer records where excellent, and they even helped me make up all my Mother’s Day deliveries. Add to this the in-depth training by Card Connection staff at both Head Office and in my area, meant I was able to hit the ground running.”

After an initial period getting to grips with his new business, Thayalan has already increased territory sales in the last three months compared to the same period last year. “It’s helped that I’ve been able to call on friends and contacts from my time as a retailer to successfully open accounts in several new stores,” added Thayalan.

Thayalan & Siva have just learned that their hard work has paid off as they were announced as the National Winners of a competition run by Card Connection with a fantastic trip to New York as the prize.

Card Connection is part of UK Greetings, which is a subsidiary of American Greetings Inc., one of the largest greeting card publishers in the world and has limited vacancies for franchisees that are keen to run an expanding business. Since the franchise network in the UK is complete, the available opportunities now consist of acquiring an already-established territory from an existing franchisee. These vary in price according to their level of development, but start at £35k + Stock + Card Connection fee with earnings potential in excess of £50k per annum.
