A Brand Set Apart

Our company takes pride in being a part of every patron’s special occasion. We offer a large selection of quality greeting cards, gifts, and celebratory merchandise at unbeatable values! From the everyday birthday card to the congratulatory anniversary gift, there is something for every occasion here at cardfrenzy™.

Our concept was first developed by CEO, Gary Rada. Drawing from his experience in the retail sector, Mr. Rada used his extensive understanding of the greeting card consumer to make the cardfrenzy™ concept become a reality in 2010. The first location opened in Countryside, IL and has since launched two additional locations in the Chicagoland market.

With proven operational practices, and an ever-evolving quality greeting card and gift selection, cardfrenzy™ is propelling forward. We are eager to introduce the rest of the states to our fun boutique experience that lets customers give their best for less! Our brand is built on a firm foundation and we are seeking qualified candidates for an enticing franchise offering.
