The Houston community is about to have another go-to destination for gourmet hot dogs, sausages, burgers and one-of-a-kind creations when Dog Haus makes its debut at 1096 Enclave Parkway on Saturday, Oct. 2. 

To celebrate Dog Haus Biergarten Energy Corridor’s grand opening, the new restaurant is giving 20 lucky fans a free Haus Dog every week for a year. Now through Sunday, Oct. 17, fans can text “WIN ENERGY CORRIDOR” to 833.440.1110 to enter Dog Haus Biergarten’s grand opening sweepstakes. Twenty lucky prize winners will enjoy their choice of seven chef-driven Haus Dog creations, which feature premium toppings, once a week for an entire year. The winners of the sweepstakes will be notified on Monday, Oct. 18. 

“Since we first started serving The Absolute Würst in Houston about a year ago, the community has gladly helped our brand establish itself as the haus everyone wants to be in,” says Franchisee Jason Rappaport. “So, we’re proud to keep growing Dog Haus within this popular city and introduce our signature creations to the Energy Corridor area. We can’t wait for Houstonians to join us in celebrating our grand opening!”

As a way to support its community, during grand opening weekend, Oct. 2-3, Dog Haus Energy Corridor will donate 15% of sales to the Katy Rotary Club, an organization of business and professional personnel who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards and help build goodwill and peace in the Houston area.

The new restaurant is the second of several Houston Dog Haus locations that Rappaport and his team have in the works. Rappaport plans to open 30 restaurants throughout San Antonio and Houston over the next five years, including five additional locations in the next six months. 

Houston’s new Dog Haus is open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to midnight. This opening marks the sixth Dog Haus in Texas..
