Oscar franchisees reflect on a wise investment

Oscar franchisees reflect on a wise investment

Neil and Lorraine Stapleton say their OSCAR pet food franchise has given them an enviable lifestyle

Based in Honiton, Devon, Neil and Lorraine Stapleton said over 16 years ago that they were starting their OSCAR franchise in anticipation that its eventual success would provide a good income, enable them to enjoy a better standard of living and allow them to spend more quality time with their young family.

Neil says: “We stuck to that belief and worked hard, sacrificing a little along the way, but now we have total control.

“Would we do it all over again? Yes we would. OSCAR has brought us a very special lifestyle. Being able to work together and be there to see our children grow up is something we would not have missed for the world.”

Value for money

Having focused on how to save their customers time and money, Neil and Lorraine’s business is still growing, despite the sluggish economy. “Our quality products can reduce unnecessary veterinary bills and, combining that with home delivery, we have made a difference to the fuel costs of shopping for pet food,” Neil explains.

“By researching the market, it is clear that OSCAR food is well priced compared to our competitors. In addition, the quality of our product helps us to reduce feeding rates, offering greater value for money. It proves itself time and time again.”

The couple have always worked as a team - Neil’s in charge of deliveries, while Lorraine manages the office and promotional opportunities. Neil says: “One thing we restructured was delivery days and over time we too have cut back on our use of fuel by better planning of deliveries. The rest of the Thriving business Neil and Lorraine Stapleton say their OSCAR pet food franchise has given them an enviable lifestyle time is ours to enjoy long weekends or make use of the extra hours to attract new business.

“We do not take our success for granted. We always keep on top of things and over the years have gained great benefit from working and sharing ideas with fellow franchisees. To have a network of people all working towards the same goal has benefited our progress. It’s a deeply satisfying way to run your individual business in your individual area knowing you are visible throughout the UK.”
