Our Story

Cardzone was established in 2005 by our Managing Director, Paul Taylor, who has since grown the estate from one store in Sheffield to over 175 store locations.


A family-owned business with Paul Taylor’s son, James Taylor, became our Trading Director in 2017 and Alex Taylor, James’s sister, recently joined us as Marketing Manager.  The business prides itself on nurturing all of our talent and we treat everyone as part of the Cardzone family. Just at the start of this year, we celebrated the first of our winner for ‘Store of the Year’ at East Midlands. What a fantastic achievement, well done to the team!

“I take immense pride in the fact that two of my children have decided to become integral members of the Cardzone team. As Managing Director, their choice to contribute to our family business is truly humbling. I am very grateful to the entire Cardzone team for making this journey possible. Stay tuned as there are some exciting ventures ahead with Cardzone.”

Paul Taylor,
Managing Director


“The reason I have worked for Cardzone for 15 years is the continued support and encouragement that I receive every day. I have been given the opportunity to fulfil my career dreams, starting as a sales assistant and rising to a Commercial Manager. Cardzone allows me to be myself and flourish within my role. I have huge respect for Cardzone for where it started and where it’s going!”
