At EarthWise, we believe inherently that pets are family. That’s why we’ve devoted more than four decades to ensuring our furry friends have access to high quality nutrition, safe supplies and top-notch grooming services nationwide. It’s why we’ve built a business model that helps franchisees thrive while contributing to the joy pets add to our lives.
A growing, resilient $70 billion industry
The pet care industry generates more than $70 billion in sales, according to the American Pet Products Association. That number has been growing for decades, during good economic times and bad. Americans increasingly recognize their pets as members of the family, and they want the best for them. EarthWise Pet provides the best by exclusively providing green, all-natural food and pet products, and by offering customers advice and services to keep their four-legged friends healthy and happy.
