Consider a Franchise and Self Employment on International Women’s Day

Consider a Franchise and Self Employment on International Women’s Day
Date: 04 Mar 2020

International Women's day is celebrated annually on 8th March and this year's campaign theme is "An equal world is an enabled world" #EachforEqual #IWD2020.

There are over 40 female franchisees across the OSCAR network, and to mark this special day we would like to celebrate the achievements of our inspiring women business owners. OSCAR provides flexible working hours and can be successfully developed around home and family life; although drive and ambition are required to build and grow a successful business.

OSCAR Pet Foods is the UK's largest pet food home delivery service, offering a comprehensive range of products to suit all breeds and lifestyles, providing an unrivalled level of service for loyal and happy customers.

The pet industry is of particular interest for women wanting to set up in business due to its demand for strong communication and networking skills. Adding franchising to the mix not only embraces these innate capabilities but also offers the security of a steady income from a tried and tested business model with much-needed support and guidance from dedicated franchisor professionals. It’s a great way for women to be in business for themselves but not by themselves.

Rachel Knight - OSCAR Pet Foods Northamptonshire

“After spending 25 years in the bank as a commercial financial advisor to farming clients, I took voluntary redundancy. I went on to join a farm insurer as an 'on farm insurance agent' offering advice on the many aspects of insurance. After three stressful years of working unsociable hours and travelling around the country for little reward, I made my decision to move on.

Rachel Knight

“As one door closes another opens and my research introduced me to franchising – a halfway house to running your own business with the benefits of working alongside a large organisation. Complete with systems, products and support in place, the flexibility and freedom to run a business as you wish could not be better.” Rachel goes on to say, “Thinking about my future, I was able to forgo my previous professional career because I'd reached a stage in my life where I was financially and personally comfortable.

“I'm far less stressed and I have time for myself, my husband and my two dogs, Ted and Hannie, while enjoying new friendships with my customers. OSCAR felt right for me and my recommendation to anyone looking at a new business is to take your time and tick all the boxes to ensure it's right for you and your family.”

We are looking for enthusiastic people to follow in the footsteps of our successful women franchisees and reap the benefits of running an OSCAR franchise.
