Pet Wants Franchise Models

Pet Wants offers two distinct franchise models to suit every owner’s goals:

Pet Wants mobile franchise - The mobile model provides entrepreneurs with a solid foundation for business growth without the initial overhead of a brick and mortar location. The home-based mobile model allows owners to get their business running without the pressure of negotiating leases, hiring employees or securing occupancy licenses. Pet Wants mobile franchise owners are able to spend time building their brand, engaging with customers and delivering our in-demand products to an eager clientele.

Pet Wants retail franchise - The Pet Wants retail model provides the perfect opportunity to establish a physical location that is easy to staff and operate. In fact, most of our stores operate with fewer than four employees. With a remarkably small footprint, Pet Wants retail franchises are affordable options for individuals who want to own a retail store but don’t want the costly overhead associated with larger pet chain franchises. In fact, many of our stores occupy less than 1,500 square feet and require just two employees.

Whether you start a mobile unit and grow into a retail store, or open a chain of Pet Wants retail locations in your market, there’s a Pet Wants model that fits your lifestyle.
