Michael and Valerie Steinmetz
Good nutrition is vital for longevity, health and overall wellbeing, but finding the right food can be challenging. We are Michael and Valerie Steinmetz and, as native Idahoans, we are excited to provide the awareness, education and quality products to pet parents of the Magic Valley through Pet Wants pet food.
Our journey to open Pet Wants started with our own dog – a Shiba Inu named, Stella. We made strides to eat healthier ourselves, and we wondered if Stella was getting the best nutrition too. When she started to get finicky about her food, we knew it was time for a change. Pet Wants was everything Stella needed, and everything we had been searching for– healthy ingredients, manufactured in small batches with the convenience of delivery. However, we were disheartened and surprised when we realized there wasn’t a Pet Wants store or mobile business anywhere in our area.
We decided, if we were looking for a better food for Stella, then certainly other pet families in our area were doing the same. We had been looking for a business opportunity we could pursue as a family, so we decided Pet Wants was it!
We’ve lived in the Magic Valley for our entire lives and we have shared backgrounds in healthcare, customer service, , retail, sales and logistics. We also have a son named Chase. Pet Wants Twin Falls is a mobile business that serves the Magic Valley, including Burley, Rupert, Jerome, Gooding, Hailey, Ketchum and the surrounding areas. We look forward to meeting you!
