Trophy Pet Foods have named their 2018 Franchisee of the Year at their 25th National Conference this week. The franchised service which provides a mobile pet food delivery service for pet owners throughout the UK, focused on the people who make their brand a success. The event, led by Sales Director, Sue Reid, is a thank you to all the hard work from their franchisees across the UK and marks 28 years of continued success. Sue said, “Our 25th conference is a proud celebration for Trophy Pet Foods and a lot of fun too. We love what we do and are privileged to work with such talented hard working people who have made us a UK brand leader in the pet food delivery sector. With our franchisees going from strength to strength, the overall picture is very positive indeed”.
The Trophy franchisees travelled from areas across the UK to attend the event which included a conference, plant tour and award ceremony. Franchisees were given the first glimpse of the company’s new plans for growth and development over the next 12 months in a digital world. And as is customary at franchisee conferences, there were awards for all the Top Dogs.
