Card Connection appoints a new senior franchise manager

Card Connection, a leading greeting card publisher and franchisor in the UK and Ireland, has announced that it has appointed Darren Bull as its new senior franchise manager. Darren Bull, who had previously held the position of one of Card Connection’s franchise managers, will now be responsible for helping franchisees to increase the profitability of their individual businesses.

Robina Every, managing director of Card Connection, commented on this new appointment saying, “In addition to Darren’s management experience, he has also run his own Card Connection franchise territory very successfully. This, combined with his sales background means Darren is well placed to help our network of franchisees further increase the profitability of their businesses.”  

Bull appears to know in which direction he is heading. He talked about his new tasks saying, “Because Card Connection’s franchisees come from so many different walks of life, it is important that we provide the right ‘business orientated’ training to ensure they can run their franchises to the maximum effect and to drive sales. I am planning to implement some innovative strategies to achieve this, including spending more time ‘on the road’ to give training and support to franchise managers in order to help them work even more effectively with franchisees.” 

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.
