Lauren and Andrew Northcraft have been happily feeding their dogs Pet Wants for close to 10 years, so when the opportunity to open their own franchise came along, they jumped at the chance. Now the two are pleased to announce the launch of their new business – Pet Wants Cuyahoga.

Pet Wants’ specially crafted pet food formulas are made in small batches with fresh, natural ingredients enhanced with vitamins and minerals for a complete and balanced diet in every bowl. Pet Wants Cuyahoga offers multiple blends of dog and cat food formulas as well as healing salve, calming balm, anti-itch spray, paw wax and more. Pet Wants Cuyahoga is currently available in Hudson, Solon, Chagrin Falls and the surrounding areas through free, convenient, personal delivery service. The Northcrafts are planning to open a storefront in the near future.

Lauren and Andrew have three children and three dogs – Moose, a 10-year-old Shar-Pei; Monroe, a 7-year-old Dutch Shepherd; and Beau, a 3-year-old Pitbull mix. They are both Ohio natives and they met at Xavier University in Cincinnati. The Northcrafts heard about Pet Wants when founder Michele Hobbs opened the first store at Cincinnati’s Findlay Market. Moose, who was only six-months old at the time, had been diagnosed with the genetic condition Familial Shar-Pei Fever, and the Northcrafts were trying to find ways to help him live a longer, healthier life.

“Moose can’t digest proteins correctly and, when he’s stressed, it gets much worse. With his separation anxiety, the vet told us he probably wouldn’t make it to age 3 and would never make it to age 6. That’s when we started looking at things we could do to help. We knew a different kind of food wouldn’t be the only solution, but it would certainly play a big role in helping Moose live his best life. That’s how we found Pet Wants and, this year, Moose is 10,” Lauren said.

After they started feeding Moose the Pet Wants food, Andrew, who was in the entrepreneurial program at Xavier, asked Hobbs if Pet Wants had room for an intern. Within a couple of weeks, Andrew was moving palettes of food and making deliveries. The Northcrafts have been part of the Pet Wants family ever since.

“I always said, if Pet Wants ever decided to franchise, we’d be on board. We absolutely love the products, the mission and the company and now we’re thrilled to be opening our own Pet Wants in Cuyahoga,” Lauren said. “Pet Wants food is nutrient dense, not just because of the ingredients, but because of how it’s cooked and that it’s delivered fresh. It’s such an awesome product.”

Pet Wants has a 100-percent, money-back guarantee on the freshness and quality of the food and the company 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 Pet Wants never uses corn, wheat, soy or dyes, which makes the food great for animals with allergies.

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. It’s fresh, healthy and slow-cooked 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.
