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.
