Pet Wants is unique because we make it extremely easy to have fresh, small-batch pet food and other products personally delivered to your door. I’m Stuart Brown and, as a Pet Wants customer myself, that’s what inspired me to bring Pet Wants to Boulder.
Pets, especially dogs, have always been a big part of my life. Growing up, my parents had a black lab named Jackson, a golden retriever named Debry, two yellow labs named Genny and Sunny, and an Aussie/Broder Collie Mix named Zulu. Sunny and Zulu still live with my parents. My love of those dogs inspired me to bring home my own dog – a chocolate lab named Revy – in 2020. Sunny, Zulu and Revy were all happy Pet Wants customers long before I opened this business.
My journey started when I graduated from the Leeds School of Business at the University of Colorado-Boulder. I knew I wanted to open my own business, but I wasn’t sure what just yet. I was shopping another Pet Wants location’s website when I saw a link for franchise opportunities and everything clicked into place. Pet Wants Boulder allows me to combine my skill set and passion for business with my love for animals. Plus, I get to bring Revy along, although I think he’s in it for the freeze-dried chicken hearts and freeze-dried salmon.
I grew up in Telluride and moved to Georgia for college, but the mountains never stopped calling. I moved back to Colorado in 2018 and you can usually find me mountain biking, skiing, or taking Revy up Sanitas. We can’t wait to meet you!
