Here’s what you need to know if you’re interested in opening a Dog Haus franchise.

Dog Haus Worldwide is a casual craft concept that serves hot dogs, beef burgers, handcrafted sausages, local craft beers, and fried chicken sandwiches. 

Longtime friends Quasim Riaz, Hagop Giragossian, and Andre Vener founded Dog Haus Worldwide in 2010 in California. The company has become well-known for its gourmet signature all-beef dogs and one bad Mutha Clucka. The brand uses antibiotic and hormone-free meat to make its fried chicken sandwiches. To chase it down, a tap list of craft beers is available for guests. 

Dog Haus Worldwide has worked to ensure that there is something for everyone by offering sausage proteins and plant-based burgers for vegetarians. To give back to the community, Dog Haus Worldwide works closely with a nonprofit, No Kid Hungry, to eradicate childhood hunger. An ideal franchisee is an individual with previous restaurant or business experience who is willing to put in the work with the brand's business model.

What makes Dog Haus Worldwide a leader in the casual craft industry is its unmatched customer service and terrific menu offerings. Over time, the brand has perfected the art of building and maintaining a solid connection with guests and the communities at large. The company offers strong corporate support for its franchisees.
