Case study

Matt Cose from Newton Abbot in Devon started his Trophy franchise in June 2010, and its by far the best thing hes done. Matt is proof that you dont need any previous experience in the pet food industry as he worked for 20 years as a funeral director before becoming a Trophy franchisee.

Deciding to completely change his career path and take control of his own future, Matt was drawn to Trophy Pet Foods due to his love of animals. This passion, coupled with his natural people skills, meant that this was the perfect business opportunity for Matt to take advantage of.

Matt loves the fact that this van-based franchise allows him to plan his day on his own terms. But equally as important to Matt is that he knows that he has the support and guidance from Head Office whenever he needs it.

It hasn't all be easy though, and Matt has had to work long hours and sacrifice the odd weekend and evening to develop his business to get it to where it is today. In Matt's opinion the rewards, both financially and from a job satisfaction perspective, have been well worth the effort he has put in. Matt is now his own boss, working on his own terms and achieving the ultimate work/life balance.
