Gearing up to open in July 2023, Andrew Bazner is ready to connect with fellow pet lovers in his community and offer a more nutritious food choice.
Andrew Bazner, a six-year veteran of the U.S. Navy and a long-time telecommunications industry professional, along with his wife Stephanie, a practicing attorney, have recently embarked on a new journey. After becoming empty nesters at the end of COVID-19, the couple relocated from Washington D.C. to Rockport, Texas, a move that would eventually herald their entry into franchising with Pet Wants, the only national provider of pet food freshly delivered to customers.
In addition to a shared entrepreneurial drive, Bazner and his wife have always had a lifelong love for animals — a passion they found mirrored in the pet-loving community of Rockport, Texas. With every household in Rockport reportedly having at least one cat or dog, Bazner knew the potential for success would be high with the right pet-focused business. So, the couple decided to combine the best of both worlds and began looking into pet food franchises.
When the duo found Pet Wants, they were blown away by the quality and affordability of the product, as well as the community-driven approach of the brand. Community engagement and a genuine love for animals are integral parts of the Bazners’ story, with the couple having spent time volunteering at their local pet shelter.
Now, with plans to open their first Pet Wants location in July, the Bazners have ambitions to eventually own the entire territory along the South Texas Gulf Coast.
