“Time flies when you are having fun and that is how I feel when celebrating my first ten years as an OSCAR franchisee. It all began when I was forced to change my career as a Midwifery Sister to care for my two children who needed my full-time attention for health reasons. Caring for others has been my life and when presented with a business opportunity that provides care for animals I saw the potential to work for myself - doing what I know best and with man’s best friend.
“OSCAR came to me through the internet and instinctively we clicked. I had found an unconditionally friendly, family business that appealed immediately for all the right reasons. Ideally, for me, the flexibility of running my OSCAR business has enabled me to maintain family life while continuing to develop a very healthy customer base. My husband helps when he possibly can but the support from Head Office and neighbouring franchisees confirms the strength of our network. I am an individual but I belong to a much larger organisation that encourages teamwork.
“I love animals and in the early days my dogs, Sandy and Ben, were very much part of my business presentation; they were proof of a good quality product that produced a happier, healthier and longer life - the reward that the last ten years has brought me. The evolution of life brings me new puppies to feed; it also helps me to solve tummy or skin problems and offers mobility to older dogs, as recently confirmed by a customer whose dog responded very quickly to a specific food within the range.
“I still enjoy working for myself and I will always recommend OSCAR for its business opportunity, for its support, products and services that have proved to be beneficial and convenient for my customers and, of course, successful for me!”
