Trophy Pet Foods Case studies

  • Sharon Leicester

    Trophy Pet Foods: Sharon Leicester

    Hi, I’m Sharon from Woodchurch, Wirral and have been running my Trophy Wirral franchise for almost three years, covering Wirral, Chester and part of North Wales.

  • Matt & Jen Snell

    Trophy Pet Foods: Matt & Jen Snell

    Hi, we’re Matt & Jen Snell the proud owners of Trophy Swindon & North Wiltshire Ltd. Our story starts with both of us having worked for large corporate organisations for the last 10 years. The last few years have been particularly difficult, as we feel that our employers have lost sight of what true customer service is. In short, we felt that we could do better if we were more able to drive the businesses ourselves.

  • John & Karen Purnell

    Trophy Pet Foods: John & Karen Purnell

    John (full-time) and Karen (part-time) have structured their operations to fit perfectly with the lifestyle they want. As John says: "What could be nicer than setting off in your van every day going to meet animal lovers and their pets, and making money at the same time?"

  • Matt Cose

    Trophy Pet Foods: Matt Cose

    Hi, Matt from Newton Abbot in Devon. I have been a Trophy franchise since June 2010 and have never looked back. My last profession was completely different as I used to be a Funeral Director and after 20 years of working for someone else, I decided I wanted to put this effort into running my very own business.

  • Marion Clemens

    Trophy Pet Foods: Marion Clemens

    I was a driving instructor for 6 years before taking on my Trophy franchise. I had 3 illnesses due to the stress so I decided it was time for a major change. I wanted a way of bringing my passion for animals into my work life and a pet food franchise looked ideal. I researched the market and when I found Trophy it ticked all the boxes.

  • Tina Bingham

    Trophy Pet Foods: Tina Bingham

    I have always had a passion for animals, and when I was a child I wanted to be a vet. I never managed to achieve that, but I am now an independently qualified animal nutritional adviser, and I’m very happy to be working with animals, helping to keep them in the best possible health through good quality nutrition.
