“Strong growth is one of many areas a prospective franchisee should look at when evaluating a franchise brand,” said Eric Bell, General Manager at Franchise Gator. “There are 2 sides to the growth coin, selling new units, and not losing those that are up and running.  Growth in franchise units is a figure prospective franchisees should be looking at during the exploration process.”

Pet Wants is ranked 39th  franchise on the Fastest-Growing Franchises list.  

“Congratulations to Pet Wants for making the Fastest-Growing Franchises list,” says Bell.  “More units equals more royalty dollars which is the cornerstone to a successful system.  One that future franchisees are going to be lucky to join.”

About Pet Wants

Pet Wants was founded in Cincinnati in 2010 to bring fresh, natural, and conveniently-delivered pet food to pet families. Their mission is to enhance the health, vitality, and life of pets with high-quality food and honest advice from a Pet Nutrition Specialist on staff at each location. Pet Wants pet food is personally delivered to homes within weeks of being made, at the height of freshness. Their food doesn’t sit in warehouses and on store shelves for many months getting stale and losing nutritional value as it does for most mass-produced, national brands. Pet Wants’ private label pet food formulas are slow-cooked in small batches with fresh, natural ingredients and enhanced with vitamins and minerals for a complete and balanced meal. Pet Wants only uses high-quality proteins and never uses added sugar, fillers, animal by-products, corn, wheat, soy, or dyes. Pet Wants offers multiple blends of dog and cat food formulas as well as healing salve, calming balm, anti-itch spray, paw wax, and more. Since 2015 Pet Wants has expanded into a national presence and grown to nearly 100 locations.
