Pet Wants

Pet Wants was founded in Cincinnati in 2010 to bring fresh, natural and conveniently-delivered pet food to pet families. Their mission is to enhance the health, vitality and life of pets with high-quality food and honest advice from a Pet Nutrition Specialist on staff at each location. Pet Wants pet food is personally delivered to homes within weeks of being made, at the height of freshness. Their food doesn’t sit in warehouses and on store shelves for many months getting stale and losing nutritional value like it does for most mass-produced, national brands. Pet Wants’ private label pet food formulas are slow-cooked in small batches with fresh, natural ingredients and enhanced with vitamins and minerals for a complete and balanced meal. Pet Wants only uses high-quality proteins and never uses added sugar, fillers, animal by-products, corn, wheat, soy or dyes. Pet Wants offers multiple blends of dog and cat food formulas as well as other products including; healing salve, calming balm, anti-itch spray, paw wax and more. Since 2015 Pet Wants has expanded into a national presence and grown to over 100 locations.

Testimonials:

“When customers hear about Pet Wants, they’re intrigued by the notion that the food is fresh. I think that the challenge we have is to convince people that fresh is the better way to go. A lot of consumers, they’re very unaware that they do have choices, that fresher food does make a difference.”

-Chuck Ryan, Pet Wants Chicago

“I love dogs and cats myself, and I thought, obviously, you want to enjoy what you do and believe in what you do. The more I researched Pet Wants, the more I decided it was something I should consider.”

-Tim Chapman, Pet Wants Minneapolis

“We feel like the business is extremely scalable, and that was one of the prerequisites of us getting into it. We wanted to scale to a large customer base and size because that’s important in any business.”
