Why Franchising?

Why Franchising?
Date: 02 Dec 2020

Why franchising? OSCAR Pet Foods explain why security, proven business models, and technology provide a reassuring answer.


As we head towards Brexit, with redundancies rising and an uncertain job market, figures published by the British Franchising Association confirm more and more people are seeking the security of being their own boss.

It seems the shock of COVID and its devastating impact on employment figures is igniting many entrepreneurial sparks – and British franchising is fanning the flames.

As one of the UK’s top pet industry franchisors, OSCAR Pet Foods know there are clear winners and losers in this pandemic economy. Fortunately, their contactless safe delivery of trusted, high-quality pet food has meant thousands of customers have enjoyed a convenient and reliable service for their pet families throughout COVID restrictions.

Flexible investment packages

Proven business models, flexible investment packages and effective training plans are just part of the ‘safety net’ that franchising offers.

Whilst shop-based retailers are facing challenging times due to stringent social distancing regulations, many franchise businesses, especially van-based ones like OSCAR, are proving to be particularly resilient.

Being an essential business is a definite head start. Add to that our nation’s love of pets and you have the perfect recipe for success.

Being at home with pets during lockdown has been a comfort to many families. And with statistics provided by the Pet Food Manufacturers' Association confirming 9 million dogs and 7.5 million cats* in the UK, the temptation to consider OSCAR Pet Foods speaks for itself.

Finding the right franchisor

Franchising needs to be a great fit. Finding a franchisor that you like and share values with, and a franchise that matches your skills and lifestyle is important. At OSCAR we take great care to make sure we’re right for you – and that you are right for us!

Scrutiny is an essential part of making the right choice, and our full membership of the British Franchising Association provides prospect franchisees with essential security and peace of mind.

Fortunately, with 25 years of successful franchising behind us, OSCAR understand that not all franchisees have the same needs. That’s why we offer bespoke franchise packages based on choice and flexibility: choice of financial investment, and flexible start-up packages that manage expanding knowledge and expertise at a comfortable pace.

Thankfully, we’re no strangers to technology so supporting our franchise network through digital connectivity (enabling meetings, training sessions and daily updates to take place remotely) has been easy this year.
