Lifelong pet owner Lynette Higgins has found her perfect business partner in OSCAR

On Her Own Terms

The high quality pet food delivered by OSCAR reached Lynette Higgins way before she found her ideal business opportunity.

“It goes to show how one thing can lead to another, as I’m now running my own OSCAR Pet Foods business,” Lynette explains.

“It all began when I went online to search for pet food for Fred, my gluten intolerant Golden Retriever. Only then did a good friend tell me about OSCAR.”


Taking voluntary redundancy from her job at the Department for Work and Pensions 18 months earlier gave Lynette the opportunity to review her lifestyle options.
She adds: “As a lifelong pet owner, I think OSCAR came to me for a reason and I liked the concept. It has a strong brand presence on the internet, which also gave me confidence.

“The team at OSCAR were able to answer all my questions and with additional research on the brand, company, pet food market and local pet owners, I knew I was making the right choice.”

Lynette says she enjoys working on her own terms: “My successes include being the first business to supply a National Trust property with ‘doggie dinners’ and treats for its tea room, acting as an OSCAR ambassador to a dog rescue centre and feeding a sickly dog who became a Crufts winner.”
