Pet Wants Adds 22 Franchises

The company hopes to add 47 more territories in 2021.




Cincinnati-based Pet Wants announced the addition of 22 franchises in 2020, along with record sales.

The pet food and supplies franchise now has 111 territories across the U.S. Pet Wants launched in 2010 and is part of Strategic Franchising. Franchise owners have the option of operating a mobile or retail location.

“The pet industry is exploding right now, so there’s never been a better time to be part of it,” said Chris Seman, president of Strategic Franchising. “I’m so proud to see the way Pet Wants was able to grow throughout the pandemic showing just how sound an investment this franchise can be.”

Pet adoption has soared during the pandemic, the company noted in a press release. Pet Wants “was able to capitalize with a 25 percent year-over-year revenue increase in 2020.”

“Pet parents are really starting to pay attention to the quality of the food they are feeding their dogs and cats,” Seman said. “Pet Wants is one of the first in the industry to offer this kind of high-quality food at an affordable price, and we are confident that will lead to steady growth in the future.”

The company “hopes to add 47 more territories in 2021,” according to the release.

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
