Dog Haus to Come Home to Burbank On November 22


Acclaimed Gourmet Hot Dog Concept to Open Location in Mile High City in 2014

[Burbank, CA] (November 19, 2014) - Dog Haus, the celebrated Pasadena-based concept known for its gourmet hot dogs, sausages, burgers, and one-of-a-kind creations, will be opening its third franchise location in Burbank on Saturday, November 22th. Located at 3817 West Olive Avenue in the space formerly occupied by Taco Bell, the restaurant from franchisee Diana Ramos will be the 6th location of the emerging brand, which was originally founded by Partners André Vener, Hagop Giragossian and Quasim Riaz in 2010 to recapture the nostalgic childhood experience of eating a hot dog. To commemorate its arrival in the area, Ramos will be inviting locals to swing by the Haus for a free Haus Dog on opening day.

“I'm so excited to introduce the local Burbank community to Dog Haus," Says Ramos. “This brand is just exploding and we feel so privileged to be an integral part of their franchisee expansion during this pivotal moment. We know that Burbank is going to love everything from our awesome dogs and sausages to our inclusive Dog Haus corporate culture.”

As part of that introduction to the community, guests will be able to swing by from 11 am - 10 pm on Saturday, November 22th to enjoy a free Haus Dog from a selection of Dog Haus' classic all-beef skinless dog offerings, all served up on grilled King's Hawaiian Rolls. Options will include the cult favorite Sooo Cali Haus Dog with arugula, tomato, crispy onions, spicy basil aioli and avocado; the Downtown Haus Dog featuring a smoked bacon wrapped dog topped with caramelized onions, roasted bell peppers, mayo, mustard, and ketchup; and The Cowboy Haus Dog with white American cheese, smoked bacon, bbq sauce, and crispy onions.

To pair with their dogs, diners can order fare from Dog Haus' full menu, which is rounded out with gourmet sausages, burgers, corndogs, sides, and seasonal specials like this month’s Plymouth Rockwürst made with a turducken sausage, topped with apple cranberry mostarda, sweet potato tots and sausage gravy served on grilled Kings Hawaiian Rolls. Other menu items include The Fonz Haus Sausage that partners a spicy Italian sausage with pastrami and melted mozzarella; while the Das Brat Haus Sausage features a bratwurst with caramelized onions, sauerkraut, white American cheese, and whole grain mustard aioli. Burgers run the gamut from the trademarked The Freiburger® with white American cheese, a fried egg, haus slaw, fries and mayo; to the Holy Aioli with white American cheese, caramelized onions, smoked bacon, and garlic aioli.

Lighter appetites and kids can indulge in slider-sized portions - from a Burger with caramelized onions, white American cheese, and mayo; to a Corn Dog featuring an all-beef mini dog dipped in root beer batter. Equal attention is paid to the quality-driven sides, like Chili Cheese Tots or fresh-cut, twice-fried Fries with haus-made cheese sauce, cheddar, haus chili, and diced onions; beer-battered Onion Rings; and Sweet Potato Fries. To end on a sweet note, shakes & malts, cookies and other treats are also available.

To complement the main offerings, diners can select from a thoughtful list of beers and wines on tap. The restaurant will boast eight craft drafts with a heavy emphasis on local breweries, including [local brewery], [local brewery]and [local brewery] going by the pint. Canned beers like Fat Tire, Pabst Blue Ribbon and Modelo will be served up in koozies -- a nod to backyard summer BBQs.

The fast-casual concept, designed to elevate the nostalgic experience of eating that quintessential hot dog or burger, carries that nostalgia over to the aesthetic of the space. After ordering at the counter, diners can gather around communal-style tables outfitted with bar stools or at cozier tables that span the perimeter of the [XXXX] square-foot restaurant. Striking red and black accents enliven both the interior and exterior of the stand-alone restauarant, bringing a modern sensibility to the classic concept.

“We are thrilled to be working with Diana, who was one of our first franchisees, as she opens her first Dog Haus location in Burbank” Says Hagop Giragossian. "We think that Burbank is going to love Dog Haus and that Diana is just the right person to introduce our brand to this food-savvy community.”

The new restaurant, located at 3817, West Olive Avenue, Burbank, CA, 91505, will be open daily from 11 am - 10 pm. For more information call 626-796-4287 or visit www.doghaus.com and follow Dog Haus Burbank on Facebook at DogHausBurbank to stay up to date on al location specific updates.
