Card Connection and Voltz Energy Drink team up

Card Connection, a leading greeting card publisher and franchisor, has announced that it has signed an agreement with energy drink supplier, Voltz. As a result, the Voltz energy drink brand will now be distributed to 15,000 retail outlets throughout the UK by Card Connection's network of franchisees who deliver to stores including Netto, Budgens, Londis, Spar and Shell.

"We are committed to helping our franchisees improve the profitability of their businesses," explains Andrew Cutler, sales and franchise director of Card Connection. "One way to achieve this is to diversify and increase the product offering our franchisees can supply to each retail outlet they visit. Due to its popularity, we have been looking at the energy drink sector for some time and see Voltz as one of the most exciting brands to begin to capitalise on this market.”

"Like our greetings cards, Voltz will be placed in outlets by franchisees on a consignment basis so there is no up-front financial outlay to retailers," explains Cutler. "The new products will be delivered at the same time as the greeting cards so our franchisees will gain a further lucrative revenue stream with minimal additional effort. Our valued retail customers will also be able to benefit from the excellent margins we offer."

According to the information provided by the company, Card Connection has limited 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.
