New OSCAR Franchisee in the Spotlight
Oscar Franchisee: Paul & Bridgette Burnett
Which area does your OSCAR business cover?
Mid and North Devon, and West Somerset.
What was your career before OSCAR?
Paul – I worked for NatWest Bank, as a self-employed electrician and electrical contractor. I've also had various management roles; electrical contracts manager, senior meter technician, compliance manager and electrical contract manager.
Bridgette – has worked as a primary school cook and an office administrator.
What made you decide on a career change to run your own OSCAR Business?
I was finding it increasingly difficult to rewire houses and other properties on my own. The OSCAR business will keep me fit whilst meeting new people.
What was it that made you choose an OSCAR franchise business?
We have been impressed by what we have seen of OSCAR's, and from the reports we have received from existing franchisees.
What has been your favourite part of your OSCAR training so far?
The most interesting part of the training was learning about cats as I had no knowledge at all and, of course, the behaviourist session was quite good!.
What pets do you have?
Holly, an 11 month old Springer Spaniel.
Which OSCAR food do you feed your pet?
What is your pet's favourite game to play and why?
Holly loves to chase her tennis balls when she can get one of us to throw them for her. She does bring them back. But is not very keen to let them go again!
Tell us a funny tale about your pet
Holly chases her tail and will go round in a circle. On a couple of occasions she has chased her tail whilst circling around one of my legs.
If you could be any pet, what would you be and why?
One of the Queen's Corgis – never wanting for anything and pampered for life!
