Card Connection franchisees recognised for outstanding performance

Card Connection, a leading greeting card publisher and franchisor, has announced that it recognised its best franchisees at its annual conference held in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire.

According to the information provided, Andy and Vicki Thomson, franchisees for Sunderland and Durham, won the top award for their outstanding overall performance, while Clive Jones of Bristol was awarded the Heidi Sulley Commemorative Cup - a special prize for tenacity and team spirit.

"Andy and Vicki Thomson's unit sales have been up 27.5% year on year since they joined Card Connection in 2004," explains Andrew Cutler, sales director at Card Connection.  "With 19 months' continuous business growth, 22 new retail accounts opened last year, plus more than 30 referrals from existing customers in last two years, it was clear that Andy and Vicki really deserved this coveted award.

As well as the awards ceremony, which also recognised regional franchisees' achievements, new products and point of sale solutions were on display during the conference. In addition, senior management presentations and practical break out sessions were arranged for franchisees to learn more about subjects like staffing, IT and general business management.

Card Connection has, it says, limited UK vacancies for franchisees who are keen to run an expanding business. Successful candidates would ideally have some management experience as, once established, they would be expected to employ a small team, operate a warehouse and have several liveried vans on the road.
