When I met with the Pet Wants team, I was impressed by the mission to offer fresh, natural, locally-sourced dog and cat food, and their goal to educate consumers on how critical good nutrition is to drive superior pet health.

When Pam Brisley feeds her dogs, she wants to make sure Carmela and Rosco are getting kibble that’s nutritious and fresh. That’s why she switched her pups to Pet Wants. Now Brisley is excited to announce that she has opened her own Pet Wants business to deliver that quality food to pet families in the eastern Cincinnati region.

Pet Wants’ carefully developed proprietary pet food is slow-cooked with fresh, all-natural ingredients. The company has their distributor make 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 East Cincinnati is a franchise of the Pet Wants Franchising Systems and the mobile service delivers to Blue Ash, Camp Dennison, Evendale, Landen, Loveland, Maineville, Milford, Montgomery, Morrow, Newtown, and Terrace Park.

“I’ve been drawn to animals since I was a young child. My maternal grandparents were farmers, and my paternal grandparents were huge dog lovers. So, on both sides, I was always surrounded by animals. That experience taught me about proper care and, when I met with the Pet Wants team, I was impressed by the mission to offer fresh, natural, locally-sourced dog and cat food, and their goal to educate consumers on how critical good nutrition is to drive superior pet health,” Brisley said. I thought I knew a fair amount about pet nutrition until I, myself, was educated by the Pet Wants team. I’ve learned a great deal about what pets need to thrive, and can’t wait to share that information with my customers.    

“I had never imagined myself owning a business – let alone it being something with animals – and I’m thrilled to bring this service to the East side of Cincinnati. I’m proud to share what makes Pet Wants the unique, stand-out brand it is in the market today,” she added.

Prior to opening Pet Wants East Cincinnati, Brisley spent her career in the corporate arena, most recently at Procter & Gamble where she spent 17 years working across Consumer & Market Knowledge, Communications and Quality Assurance. She’s also an active volunteer with the Cincinnati Pet Food Pantry, which provides supplemental pet food to lower income families once per month, and drives for local dog rescue transports every week. Brisley lives in Walnut Hills with her dog, Carmela Soprano, a 5.5 YO Olde English Bulldog, and new rescue, Rosco P. Coltrane, a young Basset/German Shorthaired Pointer mix.

“When most people buy pet food, they are just grabbing a bag off the shelf based on packaging or a TV commercial they saw. Pet Wants offers a more personal touch. I want to be a resource for pet families. I want them to know that, whether they end up going with Pet Wants or not, I am here to talk about our food, pet nutrition and health and any other pet-related concerns on their minds. That, combined with our quality food and convenient free delivery service, is what really sets us apart,” Brisley 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.

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
