Dog Haus Wags The Expansion Tail

Dog Haus, the six-year-old Pasadena, Calif., concept, has signed a development agreement which will see the construction of 300-plus new franchise locations in 12 states during the next seven years.

Under the deal with American Development Partners, the new locations will be built as stand-alone Dog Haus Biergarten outlets. Dog Haus currently serves its “gourmet” hot dogs, sausages and burgers in 21 stores across five states—Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, and Utah. That footprint will grow to 19 states, with locations set to open in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Illinois,Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, and Wyoming. With this deal, the total number of Dog Haus locations across the country, including previous franchises sold, will now total more than 450.
