Pasadena, Calif. — Dog Haus, the celebrated Pasadena, Calif-based gourmet hot dog, sausage and burger concept, has signed a development agreement with American Development Partners which will include the construction of over 300 new Dog Haus franchise locations in 12 states over the next 7 years.
The new locations will be built on land primarily purchased for “built to suit” and stand-alone Dog Haus Biergarten concepts, and will be operated by veteran franchisees with extensive multi-unit and multi-brand experience. The deal — which is American Development Partners’ biggest commitment to date — has a projected real estate, construction and design investment value of over $500 million.
Dog Haus currently has 22 stores open in five states (Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada and Utah), which will now grow to 19 states across the country with stores set to open in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee and Wyoming. With this deal, the total number of Dog Haus locations across the country, including previous franchises sold, will now total over 450, with 10 out of the 19 states — 20% of the country — now sold out.
"Since opening the first Dog Haus in Pasadena, Calif., 6 years ago, we’ve been tirelessly committed to working closely with our franchisees to create an unparalleled dining experience for our guests at each and every Dog Haus location," says Dog Haus Partner André Vener, who co-founded the concept with friends and fellow partners Hagop Giragossian and Quasim Riaz in 2010. As Riaz further elaborates, “We couldn’t be more excited to join forces with American Development Partners and continue raising the Dog Haus experience to new heights across the country.”
American Development Partners’ primary role will be to aid in the development of new locations, and facilitate the acquisition of land and oversee construction of this deal’s over 300 new franchise locations.
