This is really a fantastic product and I know pet families in this community are going to love feeding it to their animals.

Eric Stavropoulos has always had a passion for pets – from the animals he had growing up to his dog now, Franklin. So when he had the opportunity to combine that passion with his love of entrepreneurship, Stavropoulos knew it was meant to be. Now he’s proud to announce the grand opening of his new business – Pet Wants Glastonbury.

Pet Wants’ carefully developed proprietary pet food is slow-cooked with fresh, all-natural ingredients. The all natural dog and cat food is made in small batches once per month so every kibble is guaranteed to be fresh and packed with nutrition. Pet Wants Glastonbury’s store, which opened its doors on Thursday, September 22, is located at 2249 New London Turnpike in South Glastonbury. The business also offers free Pet Wants food delivery to families across Hartford and Tolland counties.

“Pet Wants is a high-quality pet food that’s made fresh and delivered right to your door. You don’t have to worry about how long it’s been sitting on a shelf or whether or not it’s packed with by-products and fillers. This is really a fantastic product and I know pet families in this community are going to love feeding it to their animals,” Stavropoulos 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.

“I want to educate people about what’s in the food they’re feeding their pets – whether it’s something they buy off the shelf at the grocery or something they buy from Pet Wants. I think it’s important for everyone to understand what they’re giving their animals so they can make informed decisions about what’s best for their family. I’m excited to be that resource in this community,” Stavropoulos said.

Stavropoulos heard about Pet Wants through his other business, Fresh Coat of Hartford County. Pet Wants and Fresh Coat Painters have the same parent company and the Pet Wants president used to lead the Fresh Coat.

“Being a successful business owner with Fresh Coat has allowed me the opportunity to open Pet Wants. I grew up with horses, dogs and cats and Franklin, my standard poodle, has had his share of health problems, so I understand the importance of being actively involved in the care of your animals and that’s what makes Pet Wants so exciting. Pet Wants takes pet food to the next level and better food results in healthier, happier pets,” Stavropoulos said.

“I’d encourage you to try Pet Wants with your pets for one month and see what you think. I am confident you’ll see a difference and I’m happy to send you a free sample to get your started,” he 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 http://www.PetWants.com.
