Dublin-based Card Connection franchisee achieves highest ever unit sales

In a recent press release, Card Connection, a leading greeting card publisher and franchisor in the UK and Ireland, has announced that Pat Blake, franchisee for Dublin, has just achieved the highest level of unit sales in the company’s history.

According to the information provided, sales figures have revealed that Pat Blake sold more than five times the average units for the month of July. Pat Blake, who was named the winner of Card Connection’s Franchisee of the Year award this summer, has recently expanded his franchise territory to include both North and South Dublin.  

Andrew Cutler, franchise director at Card Connection, commented, “Pat’s business is really flying. By expanding his area Pat has been able to take advantage of the economies of scale achieved by running a larger operation.”

He continued, “Card Connection recently launched a new management focused business strategy to help our franchisees maximise profits. Our most successful franchisees run large territories and usually employ a small team of staff to pack and distribute cards from a warehouse, using liveried vans for distribution. Therefore, we are encouraging both existing and new franchisees to adopt this way of working and Pat is a great example of how successful the strategy is already proving to be.”  

Card Connection is one of the UK’s largest card publishers and is, it says, market leader in the franchised distribution of greeting cards. Franchisees place greeting card ranges in retail outlets on a consignment basis. According to information provided by the company, Card Connection supplies numerous national accounts including Total, Somerfield, Budgens, Londis, Spar and Shell. As the Card Connection franchise network in the UK and Ireland is complete the only opportunities available are purchasing an already-established territory from an existing franchisee. (kbp)
