Dog Haus has garnered critical acclaim and national attention for its signature all beef Haus Dogs and handcrafted proprietary Haus Sausages, as well as its 100% genetically tested, humanely raised, hormone- and antibiotic-free Black Angus beef from Creekstone Farms. All Dog Haus dogs, sausages and burgers are served on grilled King’s Hawaiian rolls. Restaurants are open for lunch and dinner daily and guests can choose from signature, one-of-kind Haus creations or customize their own from a wide array of unique toppings.
Founded by partners Hagop Giragossian, Quasim Riaz and Andre Vener, three friends who share a passion for creativity, quality and commitment to community, the first Dog Haus opened in Pasadena, California in 2010.
Our company culture makes guest’s experience fun and memorable. Upon entering, diners are greeted with a smile and treated with love and respect, making them feel like one of the pack. Stores are clean, team members are easily identifiable in their crisp, clean uniforms and Dog Haus’ special sizzle make every visit tasty and memorable.
Remember when you were a kid, and hot dogs were your favorite food? We do too.
That’s why we created Dog Haus.
At Dog Haus, not only have we always loved a good dog, we’ve taken that love to a new level—and we share that level’s fun and enjoyment with hot dog lovers of all ages. Dog Haus isn’t fast food or fast casual: it’s Craft Casual, a category we created that’s catching on across the industry. Our quality ingredients, made to order items and fun welcoming environment target a different pattern of consumption from fast food. At Dog Haus, people linger to enjoy the experience of dining, relishing the laid-back atmosphere, which makes us a breakout brand rapidly expanding across the US.
Our proprietary dogs and sausages, handcrafted by Adam Gertler, our Würstmacher, are the industry’s gold standard. Major critics, influencers and the general public rave about our presentation and signature sweet/savory combination. With certified humanely-raised, hormone- and antibiotic-free Creekstone Farms Natural Premium Black Angus beef, premium Idaho Duroc Heritage pork, hormone- and antibiotic-free, vegetarian-fed poultry, Dog Haus is ensuring that its values are evident in its offerings. Our plant-based proteins from Impossible™ Foods and Beyond Meat® reinforce this philosophy.
We opened the first Dog Haus in October 2010 with a vision of combining comfort food classics and elevated culinary technique. Demand was so strong we opened a 2nd location a year later and a 3rd six months after that. Dog Haus began franchising in 2013. Today, we have 35 locations, with 14 opening soon and 130+ locations sold nationwide.
People love our hot dog, sausage and burger creations. Dog Haus’ combination of sweet and savory in every bite, as well as our unique combinations, have created a cult following that extends across the United States. All of which flow directly from our mission of providing uncompromisingly fresh, quality food and a clean, energetic and fun environment coupled with excellent service. Our fresh ingredients, proprietary recipes and made to order items have garnered glowing press locally and nationally—always in the context of how fun a trip to Dog Haus is.
The Dog Haus experience emphasizes fun, personal connection and community engagement, not just for our guests, but for our staff as well by creating a work environment that encourages commitment, teamwork and personal advancement. This is another example of commitment to the Dog Haus mission, which includes creating a successful corporation that pays forward to the community while maintaining the most desirable work environment possible by valuing our team and ensuring them opportunities for their personal and professional growth.
Simply put, there is no place quite like Dog Haus. It’s the haus that everyone wants to be in.
