I’m Tina from Trophy East Kent, and have been running my Trophy business since 2012.
I have always loved animals, and I currently have two dogs and a cat.
As a child, I only ever wanted to work with animals. I helped out at a riding stables during my weekends and school holidays, and I always dreamt of a career working with animals. It took longer than I’d hoped to achieve this, but once I reached my 40s it was time to follow my dream.
I was particularly drawn to Trophy Pet Foods because of their ethical accreditation and their franchise model. I really liked the idea of running my own business, whilst having the training and support from a trusted franchisor. My pets had also tasted and approved their products so I knew we were on to a winner!
I’m now in my 9th year of running my Trophy business, during which time I’ve built up a loyal customer base which keeps me very busy with deliveries, nutritional consultations, weight checks and admin, but it never really feels like “work”.
Trophy also encouraged me to qualify as a Professional Nutritional Adviser and this gives my customers added confidence in me and the Trophy brand that I represent.
So, in summary, I have a great business, doing a job I love.
