Pet Wants, a national leader in fresh and nutritious pet food, now offers delivery services in North San Antonio.

Gloria and Carlos DeLeon

We are so happy with Pet Wants that we decided to join the franchise team and bring this amazing product to our community.

When Carlos and Gloria DeLeon were trying to find the best food to help their dog Charlie overcome her stomach issues, they found that Pet Wants’ specially-designed, fresh formula made all the difference. Now the two are proud to announce that they’re bringing Pet Wants to their own community with the launch of their new business, Pet Wants of North San Antonio.

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 of North San Antonio is a franchise of the Pet Wants Franchising Systems and the mobile service delivers to the entire North San Antonio, Texas, region.

“Charlie is 4-and-a-half years old and we spoil her quite a bit. Knowing that miniature schnauzers are prone to stomach issues, we were always looking for the best food – and that’s how we found Pet Wants. The difference this food makes is unreal and you really have to experience it for yourself to become a believer. We are so happy with Pet Wants that we decided to join the franchise team and bring this amazing product to our community,” Carlos said.

Prior to launching Pet Wants of North San Antonio, Gloria and Carlos both worked for a large medical device manufacturer with more than 1,500 employees – Carlos as the vice president of operations and Gloria as the human resources supervisor. Gloria also has a background in retail and Carlos has experience as a business owner. Opening Pet Wants all started with their miniature schnauzer – Charlie.

“We’ve always wanted to do something together and own our own business. We’ve tried it a few times, but never full time and never with something are we so passionate about. We love pets and, after we did our research about commercial pet food and saw the difference Pet Wants made for Charlie, we knew this was what we wanted to do,” Gloria 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.

“We care about our furry friends and we know your pets are your loved ones – just like Charlie is our baby girl. Pet Wants is fresh and all-natural and it really does make a difference. We believe in this product and we’re proud to put our names behind it. If you’re not sure, let us send you a sample so you can see for yourself,” Gloria 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
