In the latest edition of Retail & Restaurant Facility Business Magazine, Strategic Franchising's brand, Pet Wants, is featured in the article, “Pet Project - How Cincinnati-based boutique retailer, Pet Wants, is both a growing cause and a growing company.” The magazine explores the maintenance, construction, and operations of retail, restaurants, and shopping centers in each of its 11 issues per year. We are honored to have Pet Wants featured in this prominent publication and to be given the opportunity to share their mission and goals with regard to the current trends in the pet industry.
Pet Wants launched in 2010 at a high traffic kiosk in Findlay Market, providing a line of fresh and nutritious small-batch pet food products to a growing number of health-conscious pet owners. Recently, Pet Wants celebrated its 10th anniversary and the opening of its 100th franchise location in less than 5 years of franchising. With brand president Ed Evans at the helm, Pet Wants is on track to reach its 2021 goal of 43 new locations by September.
Thanks to the strength of the overall pet industry throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, the brand’s free delivery model, and the expert franchise owners who have earned the trust of their customers, Pet Wants has grown to achieve its highest sales to date in March of 2021. Demand for higher quality pet food is expected to continue to grow across all demographics of pet owners and Pet Wants has positioned itself to capitalize on the strength of this part of the industry. “Our approach leverages the best corporate development with locally owned and operated businesses,” said Ed Evans. “This allows us to continue to evolve our business model, adapt and elevate our marketing, and improve our technology.”
