OSCAR Franchisee in the Spotlight

Oscar Franchisee: Tracey Espelund

How many years have you been an OSCAR franchisee?

1 year

Which area does your OSCAR business cover?

East Wiltshire: including Marlborough, Calne, Devizes, Royal Wootton Bassett and South Swindon.

What made you decide on a career change to run your own OSCAR business?

I have been feeding my dogs with Oscars for about 6 years now, so I have seen first hand the quality of the food (Lamb and Rice is the only food that kept my old GSD’s weight on when he had pancreatitis). This, combined with the great service provided; where your pet food turns up on your door step just when you need it - as if by magic! I also wanted something local, and luckily the area near me was available at the time.

What was your career before OSCARS?

I was a Management Accountant for various blue-chip corporations.

What has been your favourite moment with OSCARS?

My favourite moment so far has been helping a Spaniel who was scratching herself raw. Her owners tried our Chicken and Rice via an OSCAR starter pack at the weekend and by Wednesday the dog had stopped scratching. It was very satisfying knowing that I had helped the dog, saved the owners a fortune in vet's fees, and found myself a new customer as well.

What pets do you have?

I have 2 dogs. Finn, a 10yr old GSD and Oakley, a 3 yr old Golden Retriever.

Which OSCAR food do you feed your pet?

Lamb and Rice mostly, but am happy to feed them anything in the range - they love them all.

What is your pet's favourite game to play and why?

They love playing 'fetch' with balls on a rope. It's great to see them at a full-out run, having a good stretch.

Tell us a funny tale about your pet.

Oakley watches TV, but only if animals are on - as soon as it's humans he goes back to sleep. Watching Crufts was fun: for each dog, he would get up, nose to TV, and then lie down again until the next dog appeared. I think he was looking for another retriever…

If you could be any pet, what would it be and why?

I would be one of my dogs – food and treats on demand, taken out for walks in the lovely Wiltshire country side, holidays all around the country and, in return, just pretend to 'guard' by barking a bit when the postman comes each day.
