My work life balance

Before franchising, my life consisted of a whirlwind of meetings, relentless travelling and early mornings. I was proud to be an Area Director for a leading global financial institution. 

Trophy Pet Foods Franchise | Pet Food Delivery FranchiseI thought I was thriving on the excitement and perpetual challenges. However, it became clear that I had forgotten about my other life!  One with my husband, dogs, and friends.  The one of relaxation and happiness.

Ultimately, I was burning out and, when my company decided to restructure, I grabbed early retirement.

From one extreme to another

Then came the days I longed for; when I could wake up with a long yawn and a stretch, the ones without stress and worry.

Or so I thought! Six months later, after ‘living the life’, my routine turned into the groundhog of coffee mornings, gym and walking my Akitas. Idyllic in some ways, but something was missing.

Franchising with Trophy

Owning a Trophy franchise has brought me the right balance of happiness, freedom, and self-worth which I had craved.

That is not say there’s no been hard work or challenges, but I’m backed by a dedicated and ethical brand. I can focus on my strengths whilst benefiting from a supported pathway to the dream of the perfect work life balance,

And then COVID-19 and Brexit

What more will prove the benefit and strength of a good franchisor?  Trophy picked up the gauntlet, pivoted the business, guided the franchisees through these minefields. Allowing me to focus on the core, and more enjoyable, elements of my business.

What Our Franchisees Say

Job satisfaction is key and we have found it with Trophy.L Weir


Trophy Pet Foods stood out as our number one option. We were very impressed with the pedigree within Trophy and their past and current performance. Whilst it was clear that the franchisors' business was being run as a serious concern, it was also as clear that ethos of the owners created an environment for new businesses to achieve their own goals. Now 8 months in, we have a business consistently generating a clear operating profit. Hard work is a message new franchisees will continuously hear from head office. We very early made the decision to make Trophy our main source of family income, so hard work, perseverance, determination, were needed in bucket fulls, along with a truly supportive family. The last key ingredient is adherence to Trophy's 'system'. This can be summed up as 25 years of refined best practice that you can rely on to help you achieve your results. Follow the system, it works...Matt Snell – Trophy Swindon and North Wiltshire
