Pets are family members and you want to know where their food is coming from, what’s in it and that it’s fresh. That’s what makes Pet Wants special.

When Shawn and Rebecca Moore’s dog picked the fresh, high-quality Pet Wants kibble out around his old food, they knew they had something special. Now the Moore family is excited to bring Pet Wants products to their community with their new business, Pet Wants Powell.

Pet Wants’ carefully developed proprietary pet food is slow-cooked in small batches with fresh, high-quality ingredients once per month, so every kibble is guaranteed to be fresh and packed with nutrition. Pet Wants Powell offers free, personal delivery to the North and Northwest areas of Columbus, including Powell, Delaware, Lewis Center, Dublin, Upper Arlington and the surrounding communities.

“We got a sample of Pet Wants for our one-year-old Boston Terrier, Gunner, from the original store in Cincinnati and he actually weaned out the Pet Wants food around the other food we were giving him. When our own dog told us he only wanted Pet Wants, we knew we’d come across something special. Then, when we saw the difference the food made for him – his coat is beautiful and he’s healthy and happy – we knew we wanted to own our own Pet Wants,” Rebecca said.

“We are incredibly excited to spread the word about Pet Wants in our community. Our craft, small-batch food, which is made right here in Ohio, is truly a cut above,” Shawn added.

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 Pet Wants never uses corn, wheat, soy or dyes, which makes the food great for animals with allergies. Pet Wants Powell – which offers multiple blends of dog food and cat food – also offers healing salve, calming balm, anti-itch spray, paw wax and more.

For the Moore family, owning Pet Wants Powell is about more than providing food, it’s about educating pet families and helping them make the best decision for their pets.

“We at Pet Wants think the consumer has a right to be more informed, and that’s why we take the time to do more than feed your pet — we want to educate you as well. We’ll help you figure out how much you need and which of our recipes is best for your furry family,” Shawn said.

“Pets are family members and you want to know where their food is coming from, what’s in it and that it’s fresh. That’s what makes Pet Wants special,” Rebecca added.

Hobbs originally launched Pet Wants in Cincinnati in 2010 and the business was built to provide proprietary crafted, fresh, slow-cooked, high-quality 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.

When they’re not packing bags of pet food and helping owners learn about pet nutrition, you can find Shawn and Rebecca spending time with their three children: Brody, Gavin and Carys. They’re also very active in their children’s schools and in youth sports.

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 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. Pet Wants food is exclusively crafted – fresh, healthy, and slow-cooked with no sugar added, no fillers, and no animal by-products. Pet Wants sources only the best salmon, chicken, lamb, brown rice, and other ingredients. Fresh ingredients make for better food, which translates into better health for pets. And, since Pet Wants never use corn, wheat, soy or dyes, the common pet health problems associated with these ingredients are no longer worries. Pet Wants fresh food is conveniently delivered to the customer within weeks of production, not months. You can learn more at
