Card Connection franchisee wins top award for fifth time

Last month, Card Connection, a leading greeting card publisher and franchisor, announced that Joe Sweeny, its franchisee for the West of Ireland, has been named the winner of its Franchisee of the Year award for the fifth time, for achieving the highest level of sales of greeting cards across the company's team of approximately 85 franchisees.

According to the information provided, Joe, who joined Card Connection nine years ago, has steadily built his franchise operation and now distributes greeting cards to central and west Ireland.

"Joe Sweeney and his team, deliver Card Connection greeting cards to almost 400 retail outlets with a buying population of just over a million people," explains Andrew Cutler, sales and franchise director of Card Connection. "Yet again Joe has proved that his hard work in expanding his business has paid dividends."

A number of other franchisees' achievements were recognised at the Card Connection's annual conference in Stratford-Upon-Avon including Gabriel McGeown from Armagh and South Tyrone who won the ‘Best Newcomer' award. Best Improvers went to Andy and Vicki Thompson from Sunderland and Durham who, since joining Card Connection in 2004, have doubled the size of their franchise, while Wakefield franchisee, Martin Sweeney was recognised with the Heidi Sulley commemorative cup - a special award for tenacity and team spirit.

Card Connection has, it says, 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.
