What Are My Startup Costs?

Joining Pet Wants is a remarkably affordable way to own a potentially lucrative business in an explosive market

To help make getting into the pet food industry as affordable as possible, we offer two franchise models — a mobile franchise and a retail store model. The total investment necessary to begin the operation of a Pet Wants Mobile Franchise is from $59,830 to $87,000 and for the Pet Wants Retail Store is from $123,850 to $202,000. We usually recommend new owners to start with the mobile unit, then when they have a solid client base upgrade to the retail store. Whether you choose a mobile unit or open a retail store, Pet Wants pet food franchise is a remarkably affordable business in a growing industry.

In 2019-2020, Americans spent $36.9 billion on pet food and treats [1] — and that number has been on the rise for the past couple of years. This is over one-third of the segment of the entire $95.7 billion pet care industry [2]. Yet, Pet Wants is the only opportunity that provides high quality, home delivery of pet foods made fresh from whole ingredients enriched with the vitamins and minerals pets need.

Imagine the opportunity to join a popular brand in a high-demand industry — just before that industry experiences a historic expansion. You can be the first to market with a popular product and bring healthy pet food to your community.

Here is a breakdown of our startup costs for each of our models:
