Daryl’s hard work pays off

Card Connection franchisee picked as finalist is prestigious awards


SIX years of hard work are paying off for Daryl Perkins with a growing business – and being picked as a finalist in the prestigious British Franchise Association awards.

Having started with Card Connection in 2013, Daryl is in the final stages of purchasing his fourth territory with the UK Greetings-owned franchisors and they are extremely proud at his nomination in the HSBC Young Male Franchisee Of The Year category.
“Reaching the shortlist is testament to Daryl’s hard work and dedication over the last six years,” said Michael Johnson, managing director of Card Connection, who supply greetings cards, gift bags and wrap on a consignment basis through their franchisees, along with display equipment free on loan, meaning retailers only pay for what they sell.
Andrew Brattesani, head of franchising at awards sponsors HSBC, added: “Daryl’s franchising journey began at a young age. Card Connection supplied the convenience store where he was working and he quickly saw the potential of the product. Having successfully grown his first Card Connection franchise he replicated this success through buying further territories.”
The winners of the HSBC Franchisee Of The Year Awards will announced at a black-tie gala dinner and presentation evening at The Vox, Birmingham on June 27.
