A unique opportunity has become available within the Trophy Pet Foods network of franchisees, to purchase an existing franchise covering the Swindon and North Wiltshire area.
The present owners, a husband and wife team, have successfully operated this Trophy franchise since 2013. In 2016 the area was runner up in the BFA’s and HSBC’s Microbusiness of the year awards.
Since January 2018 one of the owners has been contracted by Trophy Pet Foods Ltd as the Franchisee Support Manager for the national network. In December of 2018 the owner became the Director of Franchising and Marketing for the Trophy national brand; forcing a very reluctant sale of their local Calne based business.
Managing the Swindon and North Wiltshire area takes approximately 3 days per week and includes some evening deliveries. This means that there is still a good amount of potential to build this business up to an even more profitable level on a 4 or 5 day week basis.
A long-term and very loyal customer base of over 300 active customers has already been established in and around the Calne area. Leaving the very significant scope for expansion in Swindon and Chippenham areas. Full support is provided by the franchisor and the brand has been established for nearly 30 years. The current and highly experienced owner of the area, (who is remaining with the brand), will also provide an extended handover/support period if required.
Please note that no van is included in the sale, however, the rental agreement of the current van can be transferred if required. An exploratory meeting with the present owners is very highly advised.
Trophy Pet Foods stood out as our number one option. We were very impressed with the pedigree within Trophy and their past and current performance. Whilst it was clear that the franchisors' business was being run as a serious concern, it was also as clear that ethos of the owners created an environment for new businesses to achieve their own goals. Now 8 months in, we have a business consistently generating a clear operating profit. Hard work is a message new franchisees will continuously hear from head office. We very early made the decision to make Trophy our main source of family income, so hard work, perseverance, determination, were needed in bucket fulls, along with a truly supportive family. The last key ingredient is adherence to Trophy's 'system'. This can be summed up as 25 years of refined best practice that you can rely on to help you achieve your results. Follow the system, it works...Matt Snell – Trophy Swindon and North Wiltshire
