"My voluntary work for Greyhound rescue set the scene for my future, although working on the front desk at the local police station taught me all I needed to know about dealing with people. I wanted to bring a better balance to my life, and having five dogs, all in need of love and attention, led me to Oscar and the idea of working for myself.
Searching the web site strengthened my desire to become self-employed and by learning from other people’s experiences confirmed that it was now time to be my own boss. Oscar’s quality products helped make up my mind and I intend to involve my family of pets to promote the business, especially when it comes to displaying prime examples of a good diet."
"Because we are animal lovers we jumped at the opportunity to work for ourselves when our local Oscar franchisee was ready to retire. Having been Oscar customers for some time we were more than happy to take on an established business that offered a quality product. In spite of our confidence in the product, we made sure that our investment was thoroughly checked before making a final commitment.
Taking over an existing area gave us a head start but ultimately our ambition is to continue to improve the customer base and turnover. While we’re working hard, our cat, Riley and Jack Russells,Calvin and Hobbie, will continue to enjoy a happier, healthier and longer life by simply eating our stock!"
