Rachel Jackson’s Springer Spaniel played a key role in her becoming an OSCAR Pet Foods franchisee
If you’re unsettled in your work or have been forced to change your career, franchising can help you to make any life-changing decisions - with ease.
But if your own dog has anything to do with it, OSCAR is the only choice if it means bringing the complete pet care service direct to your door - as Rachel Jackson will confirm.
Planning her future
She explains: “I can’t believe that I let Heno, my Springer Spaniel, plan my future.
“But as my parents have been OSCAR customers for many years and all our dogs are excellent examples of a quality product, it was enough for me to be tempted when a local OSCAR franchise business became available in my area.
“Heno was in the background reminding me that I should take a look and like a good pet owner I did.
“My husband, Andy, and I have spoiled Heno to the point of him ruling our lives and being animal lovers we do try to take him with us whenever possible.
“This had a huge impact on my emotions and my working career, enough for me to take my OSCAR temptation on to the next step.”
Knowing and trusting OSCAR helped Rachel make the decision to become one of the company’s franchisees.
“I found the team to be helpful and supportive throughout every stage of the purchasing process,” she says. “My background in project management, finance, budgets and route planning has given me the added confidence to manage my own business.
“But to know I can rely on support in areas outside of my experience means OSCAR fulfils everything I could want from self-employment.
“Andy and I are very keen on outdoor activities and look to combine our personal interests with work.
“But the ambition to grow my business, with help from my husband, to establish a better work and home balance will be rewarding, as I can take on the role of also spoiling all the other pets in my area.”
An OSCAR franchise provides the security of a strong brand and protected image that gives you the benefit of running your own business to suit your time and circumstances.
Within your own exclusive territory, you can provide a convenient and free direct-to-the-door delivery service with a comprehensive range of quality pet foods that are supported by an honest label policy.
The opportunity to offer a complete pet care service with ongoing expert advice to pet owners, health care products and accessories, is unique to OSCAR, bringing many rewards, including repeat business and the opportunity to meet the UK’s 17 million pet owners - who just love their animals.
Over the years, OSCAR has gained the experience and confidence to recognise the importance of making career-changing decisions.
So if you want the freedom and security of running your own business, there’s no question that your change for the better should be with OSCAR.
