Unlike many commercial pet food brands, Flint River Ranch pet foods and treats are never "warehoused" or left for weeks (or months) to sit on store shelves — they are delivered to one of 15+ distribution centers and prepped for shipping within two days of manufacture. This guarantees that the freshest and healthiest possible product arrives at your door in the shortest period of time.
The second reason you won't find Flint River Ranch on store shelves is price. Flint River Ranch runs a streamlined operation focused on delivering the freshest, highest-quality food as quickly as possible to its customers at the most competitive prices.
Unlike the pet industry goliaths, Flint River Ranch doesn't spend a fortune on marketing and advertising, allowing us to use more expensive but higher quality ingredients without having to charge our customers more.
Additionally, mass marketing requires expensive national advertising and marketing; companies like Iams and Eukanuba spend hundreds of millions of dollars on advertising each year. By working with independent distributors to market Flint River Ranch foods and products, Flint River Ranch is able to pass considerable savings on to its customers while offering a much higher quality product than the competition at a very affordable price.
