Born from a passion for hot dogs, what started between friends as an idea for a fun new concept has turned into Dog Haus, a full-fledged thriving restaurant with three locations in Southern California.  

And now, less than three years later, the little restaurant is launching as a national franchise.
 
Dog Haus’ accelerated growth is a testament to a business model that was built upon an unwavering dedication to detail.  Everything from its proprietary hot dogs and Haus recipes to the presentation of its cleverly named fare, fun family friendly atmosphere, and custom décor to its exceptional and welcoming staff create the Dog Haus experience.
 
“Our small business success story has turned into a nationwide opportunity for others as well,” says Hagop Giragossian, who also serves as VP of franchise development. “By franchising, the well-honed Dog Haus brand has unlimited potential to dominate what is now a minimally served niche market in the fast causal restaurant arena.”
 
“We hit it out of the park with Dog Haus and are beyond thrilled to franchise and become a national brand,” adds partner Quasim Riaz. “Hot Dogs have long been a treasured part of America’s culture and Dog Haus is honored to be at the forefront of the present-day hot dog revolution.”
 
Dog Haus’ leadership in the hot dog revolution has generated a local cult following that is ready to explode across the country.
 
Dog Haus exclusively serves its own proprietary 100 percent all-beef skinless hot dog and tucks it inside Grilled Hawaiian Rolls instead of traditional buns — a unique sweet and savory combination that customers eat up.
 
Then, while embracing both traditional American favorites along with one-of-a-kind recipes, Dog Haus piles on a bounty of uncompromisingly fresh produce and the highest of quality toppings. 
 
When not building their own creations from a choice of more than 40 condiments, hot dog enthusiasts can sink their teeth into one of ten signature Haus Dogs such as such as the Sooo Cali, named one of LA Weekly’s Top 100 Dishes in 2012, featuring arugula, diced tomato, crispy fried onions, spicy basil aioli, and avocado — one among Dog Haus’ many items that led CNN to name Dog Haus one of their Top 5 Places To Eat A Hot Dog In The USA.
 
The creative value-based menu includes an assortment of equally inspired burgers made of 100 percent natural black angus beef, a host of the Haus Sausages and scrumptious sides including Tater Tots and Fresh Cut Fries, seasoned to perfection, as well as vegetarian options. 
 
To date, Dog Haus maintains proprietary recipes on its Haus Chili and Slaw, spicy basil aioli, garlic aioli, and secret Haus Sauce.
 
“Dog Haus is great food at a fair price served quickly in a fun and inviting atmosphere,” says partner André Vener. “There is definitely an expanding market for our concept, and we are taking it to new and exciting levels.”
