Who Makes a Good Pet Wants Franchise Owner?

Put a bowl of Pet Wants in front of a dog or a cat, and place next to it a bowl of another brand of pet food. See which one they go for. That’s the quality of Pet Wants food. Unfortunately for us, pets don’t make their own buying decisions.

That’s where Pet Wants franchisees come in. They have a passion for pets, they believe in the value of whole nutrition for their pets, and most importantly, they’re entrepreneurs driven by the desire to grow a business and generate revenues.

Pet Wants Franchise Owners Come From All Walks of Life

“Pet Wants owners spend a lot of time getting to know the pet community, becoming a part of the local support network of veterinarians, pet clubs and farmers’ markets,” says Daniel Kramig, Director of Franchising for Pet Wants. “They have to have the passion for getting out in the community and sharing the Pet Wants story with the pet lovers in their markets.”

Here are a few of the qualities we’re looking for in a Pet Wants franchise owner:

  • Passionate about pets: You’ve got to love pets to want to be a part of Pet Wants. Our four-legged friends are as big a part of this business as the owners who buy our foods.
  • A desire to educate your clients: Pet Wants is a new-to-market product, and many pet owners won’t understand the value of serving fresh pet foods to their pets. That’s your job to explain, and if you’re passionate about sharing your knowledge, your business will grow.
  • The drive to actively grow your brand: Pet Wants franchise isn’t a business for the absentee owner. Our Pet Wants franchisees are active, vital parts of their business, and they take part every day in overseeing its operations.

Training and Support:

We are looking for franchise owners with the passion and drive to work hard. You can start a Pet Wants with no industry-specific experience. The corporate team will train you on the skills needed so that you are ready to launch and develop your business.
