This is a franchise business operating under the OSCAR Pet Foods banner. Working from home, OSCAR provides a pet care service that covers a wide range of benefits to pet owners, from British-made nutritious pet food, a comprehensive range of accessories and healthcare products to advice in nutrition and behaviour.
Currently on the market is a pet food business which provides flexibility, freedom of choice and convenience. Designed to help applicants from different backgrounds and life skills to achieve success, it needs no previous experience.
With comprehensive training in all aspects of business development and the opportunity to gain a qualification in pet nutrition and behaviour, support and guidance is part of this package.
Located in the Darlington it's a fast-growing area where an enthusiastic contender with self-motivation will enjoy the excitement and the challenge.
Established in the 1990s and with over 100 franchisees throughout the UK, OSCAR is very experienced in training and supporting its franchisees.
The franchise consists of 67,304 postcodes. The core of the business is centred in and around Darlington, including Hurworth-on-Tees and Croft-on-Tees. Plus further north, Newton Aycliffe, Heighington, Chilton, West Cornforth and Ferryhill. The area is a mix of town, suburban and rural areas.
The business has grown and there is a lot of opportunities to grow the business much further. The strong personal and product relationship with customers and their pets, brings new customers from recommendations and also partnering with dog rescue centres and attending shows.
This is just the tip of the iceberg as much more can be achieved by direct canvassing, partnering with breeders, groomers, pet sitting/walking businesses and charities (to name a few). I currently spend approx. 26 hours a week.
Regrettably, due to health reasons I am selling the business. This is not a decision I have made lightly, but my health has to take priority. This is a great opportunity for someone to take to take over the reins and to continue to build the business.
