A unique opportunity has become available within the Trophy Pet Foods network of franchises to purchase an existing multi ward winning franchise. The exclusive area covers West Wiltshire and East Somerset including the city of Bath.
Presently owned and operated by husband and wife team John and Karen who have built up a successful business from scratch to now include around 300 customers who are ordering food on a repeat basis. The owners are one of the top performing franchises within the Trophy network gaining multiple awards during the 11 years of operation. The owners have also developed a system that easily achieves repeat ordering that ultimately works well for stock control and helps to achieve a high level of customer satisfaction.
Through careful planning and development of in house systems the current delivery time over the whole area can be easily achieved within two days, sometimes stretching into the third day on particularly busy weeks –e.g. Christmas holidays. These deliveries are all made in the morning and usually completed by early afternoon using a postcode driven route planner. The owners have deliberately not built the business any further as they head into semi-retirement. This provides an opportunity to keep the current business part time or to significantly increase turnover with additional hours. The franchise is currently enjoying a regular supply of leads for new customers from a local dog behaviourist as well as from other sources.
Full ongoing support is provided by the franchisor and the brand has been well established over the last 25+ years. The current owners will provide a full professional handover period with ongoing support where practicable.
The price is £56,000 or to include a fully fitted Renault Traffic Van with full service history the price is £58,000.
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
