Pet Wants

The Pet Wants franchise provides fresh pet food straight to the customer's homes through mobile units or at its brick-and-mortar locations. This allows its franchise owners to have flexible models to fit their lives and provides easy market access. It was founded in 2010 by Michele Hobbs and her wife, Amanda, Their dog, Jackson, had allergies and a host of other health problems that included painful skin rashes. But the pet food the vet recommended only made the dog’s problems worse. This inspired them to open their own pet food store. Since beginning to franchise in 2015, the franchise has grown to 125 units across the U.S.
