Dog Haus, a celebrated gourmet hot dog, sausage and burger concept headquartered in Pasadena, California, continues its meteoric path of expansion with the announcement of a 20-unit franchise deal that will bring its one-of-a-kind creations to Texas. The deal with franchisee Ron Ryan, a veteran restauranteur and former V.P. of Operations with 49 unit Maggiano’s Little Italy, raises the total number of planned franchised Dog Haus locations to more than 100 in six states (Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, Utah, and now Texas).
Ryan joins more than 20 franchisees who have been similarly inspired by Dog Haus’ reinvention of the humble hot dog, sausage and burger since Partners Hagop Giragossian, Quasim Riaz & André Vener initially made the decision to franchise in 2013. The first franchise restaurant opened in June 2014, signaling the brand’s growth from two company-owned restaurants in Pasadena with a current total of nine restaurants throughout Southern California, plus, most recently, Centennial, Colorado. Based on current construction timelines, the brand will open 11 additional franchise locations before the end of 2015 raising the total to 20.
