Our low-cost Pet Wants franchise option is a great way to start
Taking advantage of the huge increases in high end, healthy pet food sales is more attainable than you might think.
That’s why Pet Wants franchise offers two models, a full-blown retail pet store model that doesn’t break the bank and an even more affordable mobile model. Our mobile franchise is designed to take advantage of farmers’ markets, dog shows, community events and festivals. Events like these are a great and inexpensive way to introduce Pet Wants food to a large number of customers and an easy way to acquire new subscription and delivery clients.
A Pet Wants mobile franchise consists of our signature, portable display kiosk, and a highly visible delivery vehicle decked out in the custom, attractive and energetic Pet Wants livery. Going mobile limits your overhead and provides you with the opportunity to get started and recoup investment faster.
Best of all, opening a Pet Wants Mobile franchise means you can avoid high rent. That was one of the features that attracted Caonex Abreu and Javier Echaniz, who opened their Pet Wants Mobile franchise in Miami last year.
“It’s a great model for us, because building the Pet Wants brand means you have to be out there, and you have to work it,” Caonex says. “It also made a lot of sense for us, because rents in Miami are very high.”
Caonex and Javier divide their time between making deliveries and taking part in home shows, pet-centered expos and their local farmers’ markets. They’re also working to build a reputation as responsive customer service professionals, which creates tremendous third-party referrals — the heart of growing a Pet Wants franchise.
Third party referrals happen organically as customers and local pet organizations learn the value of Pet Wants and recommend you to their friends, clients and members. This builds the brand quickly and establishes your new business in the pet-loving community.
As your business grows, the mobile unit is designed to scale into a full retail operation, complete with the mobile delivery unit, portable kiosk and an attractive, inviting storefront. If the time comes that you want to open a retail location, you can do so for an additional franchise fee of just $10,000.
That’s the path Caonex and Javier hope to take by the end of 2018. They’re growing their delivery business and increasing Pet Wants visibility throughout their area, and the partners definitely see the value of the retail establishment. While their business is thriving, Caonex says they recognize the value of opening a Pet Wants retail franchise location in Miami, where numerous neighborhoods offer the kind of pedestrian, pet-friendly traffic that could drive sales even higher.
“We think the retail site has a lot of upsides,” Caonex says. “If it’s done right, it could be a big opportunity for our business.”
