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.
Buying into a successful OSCAR franchise is an opportunity not to be missed, especially if you have your sights set on self-employment in the pet industry. Looking towards retirement, the current franchise owners have decided to place the business on the market which has been established since 1998!
OSCAR, as a well-established franchisor, takes special care of its franchisees and so much support ensures that you will gain a wealth of knowledge in learning how to run and sustain a valuable business. If you are based in or around the South East Devon, West Dorset and South Somerset area this business is looking for a new owner for its existing customers, who are appreciative of the convenient and reliable service.
Established in the 1990s and with over 100 franchisees throughout the UK, OSCAR is very experienced in training and supporting its franchisees.
There is vast potential to further expand the already solid and very profitable business through the existing postcode sectors. Extensive new housing developments across all sectors provides even more potential business. New customer leads are obtained primarily from customer referrals while other leads are generated by attendance at shows/fayres/leafleting. For the trading year April 2019 to March 2020 over 50% of new customers came from referrals. During the coronavirus pandemic the business has continued to thrive and grow.
