Dog Haus was born four years ago in 2010 as a brainchild of business partners Andre Vener, Hagop Giragossian and Quasim Riaz.

"We have had such a blast creating a fast casual concept that resonates with each of us and successfully incorporates what we're passionate about: good food, good people high quality and nostalgic fun," as states by Riaz 

"It takes a lot to get the formula right! We believe that we've done that with Dog Haus and are so gratified to grow our brand with like-minded franchisees who fully embrace our culture and commitment," he added.

To culminate the expansion plans of the fast-casual restaurant, Dog Haus will open a franchise in West Covina (2678 East Garvey Avenue South) in LA County on Oct. 4.

The plans include the first Dog Haus in Orange County located at Santa Ana at the Westfield Mall (2800 N. Main Street). The OC-restaurant will have an area of 40-foot, and become the first restaurant of Dog Haus located a major shopping center.

"It's exciting to see how far we've come. We're stoked to continue on the journey alongside our franchisees with this landmark restaurant in Santa Ana, and other awesome locations we have in store these next few months," stated Andre Vener. Other openings will include restaurants in Burbank (3817 West Olive Avenue), LA area and Thousand Oaks (50 East Thousand Oaks Blvd.) in Ventura County just north of LA.

Dog Haus expects to open five franchise locations by the end of the year, twice as big as when the restaurant first started.

Additional franchise locations will be put up in 2015 in North Hollywood (4929 Lankershim Blvd.) in LA proper; Fullerton (2555 E Chapman Ave.) in Orange County.

2015 will also mark the year of its first out-of-state restaurant in Centennial, Colorado (12023 East Arapahoe Rd).
