The Trophy Products
The Trophy pet foods are made from only the best available ingredients and to the highest of standards. In a thriving pet food market it is vital that our pet foods, products and services are of the highest calibre, whilst remaining competitively priced. Trophy has been in business for over 27 years and this background, knowledge, knowhow and research, coupled with working with our established Trophy franchisees has resulted in the unique brand and range of Trophy Pet Foods we see today.
Manufacturing our own foods at our own pet food plant allows our franchisees to have confidence in what is a Quality British Premium product that will ensure customer satisfaction and retention. Working with our qualified pet nutritionist our foods have modern, advanced formulas.
Our range is extensive and includes complete, natural, nutritionally balanced foods for all pets. Spread over 4 ranges (Premium, Holistic, Lifestyle and Standard) with 29 exclusive dog foods, 4 distinctive cat foods and a holistic tinned dog food range; our foods allow you to offer your customers a range of pricing structures, personal choice, specialist foods and value for money.
From puppies to mature dogs, active to weight loss, gluten free, hypo-allergenic, working dog diets, skin and coat management, allergies, food intolerances to digestive issues – we have a food that will suit. We also do a wild bird seed range, chicken foods, as well as a small mammal range. We stock a complete, evolving range of pet accessories, treats, pet care items etc. This enables you to offer a one stop shopping concept. We really do cater for everything the British pet owner requires. We manufacture our food each week to maintain freshness and specially select the best ingredients available ensuring that the foods are nutritious, palatable and balanced.
Just a few of our key benefits:
- Trophy Unique Natural Recipes

- 100% Satisfaction Guarantee

Customer service is a priority with free nutritional advice, free home delivery, one stop shopping and free samples, all being available to the Trophy franchise to promote to their customers.
Trophy works closely with each new franchisee to establish a large customer base within the first few months. With a 'try before you buy' policy experienced franchisees can expect a 50-60% take up rate and a high customer retention rate. Price, service, product choice, free home delivery, free nutritional consultations etc are all relevant factors for your customers switching to The Complete Trophy Pet Care Service. Once a customer is a Trophy customer, they remain very loyal, with established Trophy franchisees reporting up to a 90% retention rate.
A good image is vital to any new and existing business. Trophy's corporate image is second to none and each franchisee has their van fully sign written, making sure that everyone knows what they have to offer. This professional image is carried through to the uniform, name badge, promotional literature, leaflets, and advertising; samples, food bags, starter packs and show equipment.
Training And Support
The first 4 days training (spread over a week here at our offices in Oxfordshire) kick starts the business. Followed by 4 days of in field training in your area with your Franchise Support Manager (FSM).

In addition further training will include:

You are never alone when you form a partnership with Trophy Pet Foods, starting with a smooth and effective launch programme. They are also with you every step of the way, after all your success is their success! One of the many benefits of running your own business in conjunction with Trophy is the level of support they can provide for you.
