John Leith wanted to work with pets and OSCAR Pet Foods provided all the right ingredients
It took friends to point out that self-employment might bring John Leith the personal rewards he was searching for.
He explains: “After 15 years on the road as a private hire driver, I retook my GCSE exams to make a career change into an office environment, which proved to be disappointing.”
As a result, John resigned from his job at the local council and started to make plans for his future.
“I had everything to gain,” he says. “Reflecting on my passion for pets, I was inspired to investigate the options. I went online to discover franchising and OSCAR. “There was no need to look any further because in OSCAR I recognised passion, commitment, dedication and a fantastic range of products that would speak volumes for anyone wishing to set up their own business.”
John’s advice for anyone wishing to join the OSCAR network is: “Know your territory and tailor your knowledge to suit your needs.
“For me, with many isolated areas of distribution, I’m now considered to be a ‘local’ pet food supplier because my customers have the reassurance of never running out of food - with the added benefit of free home delivery - and that means a lot.”
