Business format franchising
CardGroup with its unique market leading range of Greeting cards and gift products supplies 44 countries worldwide through its network of Master Franchisees
and Franchisees. We are expanding into many new markets every year worldwide and therefore we are looking for professional and motivated people who wish
to start their own business either as a Master Franchisee or as a local Franchisee.

We provide a complete Business Format Franchise System including training, operating manuals, intellectual property rights, know-how, signs, supervision, quality control and management resources to support our franchised network.

Aside from that, we have developed a unique system where we supply retailers with free display units and stock
of Greeting cards and gift products on a no-risk, free consignment basis where the retailers only pay for what they sell.

Whether you are considering setting up as a Master Franchisee or as a local Franchisee in any country, you can
be confident of an effective support package backed by a team of marketing, sales, administration, production
