In a difficult financial time, Oscar Pet Foods is hanging on to its reputation as the UK's leading petfood home delivery franchise business, with a steadily growing network, according to Franchise UK .
Statistics from the Pet Food Manufacturers' Association confirm petfood in the UK currently is a Â£1.5-billion growth industry-showing a change in UK pet care.
But some pet owners still are buying petfood with little knowledge of a balanced diet, according to the Web site.
Oscar nutritional advisors aim to build customer loyalty by providing this expertise to their clients, and the company enables individuals to create a franchise, allowing for extra income.
