Franchise in the spotlight: Michelle RodenOscar Franchisee in the spotlight: Michelle Roden
Which area does your OSCAR business cover?
My business covers the Wakefield areas, WF1 WF2 WF3
What was your career before OSCAR?
I was a self employed business analyst for over 5 years.
What made you decide on a career change to run your own OSCAR Business?
I was disillusioned with the corporate world - having to work long hours with lots of travel/commuting and very little job satisfaction, I was no longer motivated. I've always loved animals and had dogs - it seemed like an obvious answer.
What was it that made you choose an OSCAR franchise business?
Every bit of information is clear and open, contact with the franchise recruitment team has really helped with all my questions, I am confident of the brand
How did you find the process from looking at the business to buying the business?
Very straight forward, all the information packs provided by OSCAR have made the process very easy, I did a lot of due diligence, speaking to other franchisees, research through friends, family and neighbours.
What pets do you have?
I have a new addition to the house called Oscar!! He is an RSPCA rescue adoption and has really landed on his paws with all the Oscar food, treats and toys. He’s going to be a great tester!!
If you could be any pet what would you be and why?
I have to say a dog, with the right family they have a great life, but when I need sleep I'd be anything that hibernates (a hedgehog?)
