Pet Wants Pet Food Franchise Appeals to Millennial Customers

Millennials are a coveted demographic in the pet industry, and our premium pet food franchise fills a powerful niche

A recent article in AdWeek took a look at that mysterious, millennial generation and how millennials relate to their pets. The results are good news for Pet Wants franchise owners, because many millennials view their four-legged friends as “starter children,” according to AdWeek.

“Marketers say they’ve noticed that the perception of pets has changed with this generation,” AdWeek writes. “And they can take that animals-as-kids perspective to the bank.”

Pet Wants franchise cuts right to this demographic with our a premium pet food franchise, which 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 is better for pets and doesn’t devastate owners’ pocketbooks. With two franchise models available — a mobile delivery model and a retail store model — Pet Wants is attracting a new generation of pet lovers, and here’s how.
