Original Poster Company Greeting Card Franchise for sale in Cheshire, Staffordshire & Shropshire area (see map for territory). Greetings cards supplied on a “sale or return” basis to circa 130 stores including Post Offices and convenience stores, card shops and forecourts with a good mix of National Account Symbol groups (eg.Nisa, Costcutter, Londis, MFG) and Independent stores.
Outlets are normally visited on a monthly basis and an invoice raised for cards sold since the previous visit. As the Franchisee is able to plan their own work schedule, there is flexibility in where and when you visit stores which gives a good balance for family life. Some days are taken for ordering and receiving stock and also prospecting for new stores. There is a regular release of new designs to offer to customers, along with a full Seasonal offering (Valentines, Mother’s Day, Easter, Father’s day and Christmas cards).
There is an income from day one as you take over all existing accounts, stock and fixtures. This home-based franchise requires a room/garage for storage of stock. It is possible for an incoming franchisee to live anywhere that is accessible to the territory.
The majority of stores have continued to trade during the Pandemic and have experienced significant sales during this time. There is also opportunity to earn commission as a representative for the Holding company’s stationery supply business (Perkins-Williams).
There is ongoing sales training and support from Head Office staff and a Business Development manager – no previous sales experience is required. The franchise has been in our ownership for 13 years and is now being offered for sale due to our wish to relocate, following three terms within the Franchise.
