CARD MY YARD’S EXPONENTIAL SUCCESS
Card My Yard, America’s original yard greetings franchise, reported 2020 as an incredibly successful year, wrapping up the year with 193 new openings and 200 signed franchise agreements – more than 94 percent of those agreements stemming from female entrepreneurs. With a 600 percent increase in sales, the brand is poised for continued success and on pace to reach 450 franchise locations in 2021.
“Card My Yard was founded with a mission to spread joy on a daily basis and this past year, that message and vision for our brand became more powerful than ever before,” said Jessica Stanley, co-founder and CMO of Card My Yard.
“Americans faced a pandemic unlike one we’ve ever seen in our lifetime and being the go-to brand that could help families and loved ones celebrate – from a distance – milestones, birthdays and special occasions was extremely rewarding for all of us involved. We also saw people who had lost their jobs launch Card My Yard in their own town – many finally realizing their dreams of becoming small business owners and entrepreneurs. As we turn our attention to 2021, we’re excited to continue to make a positive impact in communities across the country and look forward to a bright future ahead for the brand.”
The brand also announced its strategic investment by Princeton Equity Group, a private equity firm with extensive experience in the industry and a plethora of resources that, together with Card My Yard, they will use to serve the brand’s growing list of franchise partners.
