In 2019-2020 American Pet Owners Spent $50 Billion on Pet Food [1]

The total market for pet food is $50 billion, which is part of the larger $124 billion pet products industry [1]. As consumers shift towards a more health-conscious lifestyle, they look for the same quality for their pets. Pet Wants provides a convenient solution that pet parents can count on. 

Spending on quality, nutritional pet food is at an all-time high, which makes it a great time to own a Pet Wants franchise.

“What makes us unique is that we’ve pulled together things that were missing from the industry,” says Paul Kamm, VP of Operations for Pet Wants. “The idea was to make limited-ingredient formulas, once a month in very small batches — which is not common in the industry at all — that would be shipped in bulk directly to the store and dispensed as it’s sold.”

In addition, Pet Wants is the only national provider of pet food freshly delivered to customers. 

“Even though Pet Wants is a new, emerging company, we have over 100 owners” says DeNita Carani, President of Pet Wants. “At the same time, as the pet food industry continues to grow, consumers are becoming more educated about ingredients and the benefits of natural pet food. We’re currently the only brand that offers fresh food delivered right to the home.”

Pet Wants is the Solution for Convenient Food, Freshly Delivered

Instead of manufacturing tons of kibble at once, that then sits on the shelves of pet stores for months. Pet Wants manufactures food every month and then ships our kibble directly to the franchise. Franchise Owners will buy the optimal amount of food they need. 

The results are a pet food that is made with fresh, natural ingredients enhanced with vitamins and minerals that are good for your customers’ pets — manufactured, shipped, and delivered within 6 weeks. No other pet food product can promise that.

We’re proud of our fresh, healthy pet food made without any corn, wheat, or soy fillers. At the same time, our leadership team is committed to staying ahead of the curve.

In 2010, Pet Wants started as a single store in Cincinnati. Since beginning to franchise in 2015, Pet Wants has grown to over 100 locations across the United States.

To keep up with this growth, Pet Wants takes pride in hiring passionate operations and nutritional experts to provide franchise owners with exceeding support.

“We’ve added an animal nutritionist to our staff to help formulate new diets and keep us on the cutting edge of the industry,” DeNita says. “We’ve also beefed up our operations team with people from the pet industry who are there to help our owners navigate the path of pet retail.”
