The Johnnie’s Dog House franchise is the newest addition to the growing fast-casual restaurant franchises with plans to become a nationally recognized brand. Over the past several years, Johnnie’s Dog House customers have enjoyed the best hot dogs brought to them from around the world, and a variety of menu selections of “The Foods You Crave!” Their food, coupled with a comfortable-nostalgic atmosphere has made Johnnie’s Dog House a destination restaurant for friends and families of all ages.

Mark and Joanne Raphaelson, the most recent multi-unit franchise owners, wanted to seize the opportunity to become part of the Johnnie’s Dog House brand. “We first stepped into a Johnnie’s Dog House more than a year ago in downtown Wayne, Pennsylvania, and became transfixed by every aspect of the restaurant – from the loyalty of the patrons and the friendly, neighborhood atmosphere to the fresh, innovative, nostalgic menu.” The Raphaelson’s state, “we believe that the Johnnie’s Dog House brand and business model offer a unique and competitive advantage for a franchisee.”

Todd S. Chusid, Founder & CEO Johnnie’s Dog House™ states, “I am looking forward to working with Mark and Joanne to maximize market penetration, brand awareness, and franchise owner success.” Mr. Chusid says, “Johnnie's Dog House uses a strategy of total product service. Our promise is in our location, the products we sell, the people we attract, and the atmosphere we create. We keep everything simple and consistent which makes training easier, managing inventory simpler, and maintaining a consistent-quality-product everyday.”
