Pet Wants Franchise is Perfect for Passionate Pet Lovers

Three reasons why a premium pet food franchise is ideal for animal loving entrepreneurs

So many entrepreneurs choose Pet Wants franchise as their next investment because Pet Wants premium pet food has changed their pet’s life. It’s a story Betsy Kuhr hears at least once a week in her role as Franchise Sales Consultant for Pet Wants. And it’s precisely why she goes to work every day.

“When we set out to create these formulas, we did so to fill a void in the pet food industry,” Betsy explains. She’s worked with Pet Wants founder Michele Hobbs since almost the beginning of the company, and she was there as Michele worked to develop a signature line of pet food formulas that could help owners combat food allergies, provide better nutrition, and that was most importantly fresher. There simply wasn’t a brand out there doing that. “The more she looked into it, the more she found they were not only not delivering, but they were also out of date. She wanted to fix the pet food industry, to create something different.”

Today, that difference is apparent in Pet Wants, a premium pet franchise that offers pet owners an alternative to the made-last-year bagged food that’s been sitting in warehouses or on store shelves. Our premium pet food is manufactured from whole ingredients — there are no by-products in Pet Wants foods — every 30 days and delivered in bulk to the franchisee. The result is a nutrition-rich, delicious food that provides more nutrition for pets and doesn’t devastate owners’ pocketbooks. It’s a potentially lucrative business in a fast-growing segment of the massive, $22 billion pet food industry.

Pet Wants franchise is an ideal business for animal lovers because our product is something you can stand behind, it’s fun to own and operate and it appeals to a wide customer base that hails from all walks of life and economic levels. Here’s how.

Pet Wants franchise owners feed their pets our food

Pet Wants premium pet food is a specially crafted pet food formulas made in small batches and shipped directly to the franchise owner in bulk. Made with fresh, healthy ingredients enhanced with vitamins and minerals for a complete and balanced diet in every bowl, Pet Wants pets love the food – and their owners love the results. In fact, many of our franchisees started out as customers, such as Chuck and Ewa Ryan, of Chicago, whose journey into the pet industry started because of a dog with special dietary needs.

“We ordered food for delivery to the house, then we filled out the application,” Chuck says. “Within a week, we realized that Goliath’s stomach was doing a lot better on that food. That’s that intrigued us more to pursue it as a business.”

By the time Chuck and Ewa decided Pet Wants franchise was the business for them, Goliath was back to normal and living a much better life. They knew then that Pet Wants was a brand they could get behind.
