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 an in-line store model. Total investment costs for your Pet Wants pet food franchise costs range from $56,830 to $191,000. Whether you choose a mobile operation or open a retail store, Pet Wants pet food franchise is a remarkably affordable business in a potentially lucrative growth industry.

Premium healthy pet foods comprise more than $8 billion a year in the pet food industry. That’s more than a third of all of the $22 billion pet food and treats business every year — and the percentage is getting larger. According to industry experts, natural and “whole” pet foods are the fastest growing segment of the entire $70 billion pet care industry. 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 an historic expansion. Because there is no national player in the home delivery market for high quality, healthy, fresh pet food, you can be the first to market with a popular product and a business that doesn’t compete in the crowded fast food or service sector arenas.

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