When Frank Lemos and his family got their first dog, they wanted to make sure they were giving him a food that would support a long and healthy life. Unsatisfied with the products available at the local pet store, they started having food shipped in from Pet Wants in Cincinnati. Now Lemos is excited to announce that other families in the area will be able to feed their animal companions Pet Wants through his new franchise, Pet Wants PDX.

Pet Wants’ carefully developed proprietary pet food is slow-cooked with fresh, all-natural ingredients. The company’s distributor makes the dog and cat food in small batches once per month so every kibble is guaranteed to be fresh and packed with nutrition. Pet Wants PDX is a franchise of the Pet Wants Franchising Systems and the mobile service delivers to Oregon City, West Linn, Lake Oswego, Sellwood, Milwaukie and Happy Valley.

“When we got our dog we realized, you pay all this money for the perfect food, just to find out that it’s packed with fillers and low-quality ingredients. And, even if the ingredients ARE great, you have no idea how long it has been sitting on the shelf or how long it was in the warehouse. We learned about Pet Wants in Cincinnati and started giving it to our pets. We found our pets actually wanted to eat the food and didn’t immediately go to sleep afterwards – they had more energy, less pain and we knew we had found a new quality food for our fur babies,” Lemos said.

“We decided to open Pet Wants PDX because, the more people we talked to, the more people shared stories and the more we found people were looking for a product like Pet Wants here in the Portland area. That’s when we knew we had to deliver this food to our friends, family and the community. Pet Wants PDX is committed to providing the best quality food to your family, delivered straight to your door,” Lemos said.

In addition to being made fresh monthly, Pet Wants only sources the best salmon, chicken, lamb, brown rice and other ingredients available. There’s no sugar added, no fillers and no animal by-products. And, since Pet Wants never uses corn, wheat, soy or dyes, the food is a great fit for pets with allergies.

“As a dog and cat owner, we love our pets and they have become part of our family. We want our pets to live as long as they can, and be as healthy as they can be. The Pet Wants food – which we’ll conveniently deliver right to your door – is a great meal that will leave your pets happy and healthy. Let me send you a sample and tell you about how our food is different,” Lemos said.

Pet Wants originally launched in Cincinnati in 2010. Owned by Michele Hobbs, the business was built to provide proprietary crafted, fresh, slow-cooked, all-natural pet food delivered to customers through a retail store and a convenient home-delivery service. Hobbs, now the company founder, turned the business into a franchise in 2015 with the help of Franchise Funding Group, an investment and franchise-development company designed to help entrepreneurs scale their companies nationally as franchise systems.

About Pet Wants: Pet Wants was started by Michele Hobbs out of love for her pets and frustration. Veterinarians were unable to help relieve her dog’s painful skin allergies. After doing much research, Michele discovered the national dog food brand she trusted was not fresh, not all natural, and lacked sufficient nutrition...and when pet food sits in warehouses and store shelves for months and months… it loses even more nutritional value. She was committed to developing a better solution for all dogs and cats. Their food is exclusively crafted… fresh, healthy, slow-cooked and all natural with no sugar added, no fillers and no animal by-products. They source only the best salmon, chicken, lamb, brown rice, and other ingredients. Fresh ingredients make for better food… and better health for pets. And since they never use corn, wheat, soy or dyes, the common pet health problems associated with these ingredients are no longer worries. Their fresh food is conveniently delivered to the customer within weeks of production, not months. Roughly half of Pet Wants products are sold through their store and half through their convenient, home-delivery program. You can learn more at
