Unique Concept


Our fresh ingredients and family’s recipe’s create our fabulous menu with a variety of mouthwatering hotdogs that are named after dog breeds. Our buildings are literally shaped and painted like dog houses and even the trash cans are shaped like fire hydrants. This brings curious new customers to the door while our delicious products and home-made recipes keep them coming back. It is not unusual for customers to stop and take pictures of the buildings.



Simple Operating Model


Stores can operate efficiently with 2-3 employees. There are no recipes to prepare and menu items are easy to heat and serve meaning health department requirements are easy to meet. Indoor customer seating is not offered in current locations which means turnover is not limited by available seats.



Large Market Demand


In 2015 retails sold $2.5 Billion in hot dogs. Restaurant sales of hot dogs are continuing to increase with companies like Burger King entering the market. Proving the stability of the market, the Dog House has been in business for 45 years with effective operations manuals, training guides and ways of working successfully.



Fun Place to Work


The Dog House restaurants offers a fun work environment with everybody in the store trained to do everything. Unlike some fast food restaurants where employees only work the register or only make the food, all Dog House employees get to participate in every aspect of the daily operation.
