Franchise Gator, a trusted name and resource in the franchise education industry, just named the Pet Wants Franchise #2 on their list of the 50 Fastest Growing Franchises for 2018.
“This year we identified 50 franchise opportunities for the Fastest Growing category,” said Eric Bell, General Manager of Franchise Gator. “In addition to their track record for building a solid customer base and gaining the trust of investors, the opportunities were selected based on the number of opening and operating units the franchise has had over the past several years.”
Pet Wants was originally launched in Cincinnati, Ohio in 2010 by Michele Hobbs to fill a void in pet nutrition that had personally frustrated her as a pet owner. The business model was so successful that Hobbs teamed up with Franchise Funding Group to launch Pet Wants as a franchise in 2015 and soon after was integrated into Strategic Franchising Systems, a family of five separate but affiliated franchise brands. Strategic Franchising has over three decades of developing and growing multiple franchises into national brands, including Home Helpers, Growth Coach, Fresh Coat, and Caring Transition, to name a few. Pet Wants Franchise has now become their latest in a long line of success stories, with 101 Pet Wants franchises awarded and growing. Franchisees have the opportunity to open a retail store or operate on a mobile-only basis.
Pet Wants Franchise is now flourishing under President Scott Hoots, whose leadership, vision, and direction have had a remarkable impact in a very short amount of time.
“Pet Wants is an attractive franchise because we focus on providing pets with fresh, healthy, high-quality pet food in a way that’s convenient for today’s busy families with free, personal delivery. Our franchisees want to build profitable businesses, but they also want to make a positive impact on the health and welfare of animals in their own communities and give pet parents real convenience and peace of mind. Plus, our franchise is flexible and affordable, which makes it even more exciting for today’s entrepreneurs,” Hoots said.
Pet Wants’ specially-crafted pet food formulas are made in small batches with fresh, natural ingredients enhanced with vitamins and minerals for a complete and balanced diet in every bowl. There’s no sugar added, no fillers and no animal by-products and Pet Wants never uses corn, wheat, soy or dyes, which makes the food great for animals with allergies. Pet Wants locations also carry healing salve, calming balm, anti-itch spray, paw wax and more along with a variety of products from partner companies.
According to Franchise Gator, the Top 50 Fastest Growing Franchises listings is developed in order to help prospective franchisees identify top opportunities with strong growth potential that are also affordable investments for the average franchise buyer.
