PetFlow Wins CNBC's Power Pitch Tournament of Champions

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 25, 2013) - Popular subscription pet food service PetFlow, which is revolutionizing how pet owners care for their pets by delivering custom pet supply orders straight to their doors, was the victor of CNBC's Power Pitch's latest Tournament of Champions. PetFlow Co-Founder Alex Zhardanovsky took on Songza CEO Elias Roman in a face-off for the most successful, 30-second business pitch. Zhardanovsky walked away with the win after an impressive presentation on PetFlow's business success and innovative social media strategy, which recruits 40% of new customers via Facebook, by engaging people to submit cute pet photos and participate in online PetFlow promotions. 

PetFlow is ranked the number one company for social commerce in the world. The United States has over 160 million pet dogs and cats, effectively more pets than children, with over 60% of households' home to at least one pet. Americans collectively spend 55 billion dollars on their pets every year, with over 22 billion dollars spent on food alone. Before co-founding PetFlow in 2010, Zhardanovsky discovered e-commerce accounted for less than 4% of those sales, less than e-sales in any other industry. He created PetFlow to solve one problem: last minute trips to the pet store when pet owners run out of food. PetFlow subscribers choose their pets' favorite food, toys, and supplies, set a delivery schedule between 2-16 weeks, and receive regular deliveries of their pets' essentials with complimentary free shipping. In the last three years, PetFlow has raised over 10 million dollars in VC and has generated over 75 million dollars in sales.

PetFlow is not only on a mission to simplify pet ownership, the company is also an avid supporter of rescues and shelters. PetFlow.com recently raised $70,000 for the Weld County Humane Society which was affected by terrible flooding in Colorado, generated over $20,000 in donations to Military Working Dogs in Afghanistan, and partnered with Villalobos Rescue Center, the feature of Animal Planet's hit TV show Pit Bulls and Parolees, to help the rescue feed and provide critical supplies to the over 300 dogs currently at the shelter.
