Join a franchise business renowned for product quality

OSCAR’s history has been steeped in pet food manufacturing for over 25 years – designing formulas for high-quality pet nutrition long before we turned to franchising – giving us a unique understanding of the value of product quality and confidence for business opportunities.

Specialising in providing a complete pet care service direct to the customer – from food and toys to treats, accessories and health care products.

With over 16.2 million UK households owning pets there has never been a better time to step into the pet industry. (*UK Pet Food 2023 equivalent to 57%)

The OSCAR franchise opportunity

OSCAR opportunities are flexible and tailored to suit individual backgrounds and/or experience, whether to develop into a full-time business, treat as a second income or even add to an existing operation.

OSCAR franchisees bring many different skills to our network but share the same desire for a better work/life balance.

With one in two households owning a pet you can be certain of taking up a business opportunity with exceptional staying power and massive income potential.

Heno was in the background reminding me that I should take a look, and like a good pet owner I did!
