Acclaimed gourmet hot dog, sausage and burger concept teams up with trusted match firm to support franchise development
Marking ClearPath’s first franchise partnership, the accomplished match firm will serve as an extension of Dog Haus’ franchise development team. With over 10 years of experience in the restaurant industry, ClearPath will utilize its network of qualified candidates and valuable insights to introduce approvable franchise partners to Dog Haus faster. Following record-breaking growth and winning the prized honor of “Top Brand to Buy” in Franchise Times, Dog Haus is joining forces with ClearPath at the perfect time to take the award-winning brand to the next level.
Dog Haus is ClearPath’s first franchise match partner, with additional partners in the pipeline including Bobby Flay’s concept, Bobby’s Burgers, and a New York-born barbecue concept, Mighty Quinn’s BBQ. ClearPath was drawn to Dog Haus’ authentic people, award-winning menu and notable innovation efforts. The firm instantly fell in love with the brand and was drawn to the impressive success and brand development Dog Haus has accomplished over the past several years.
“At ClearPath, we call ourselves matchmakers,” said ClearPath Solutions Founder Helen Lao. “Clients hire us to find the right match, so our team goes out to identify executives for leadership teams and we’re doing exactly that for great franchise brands like Dog Haus. There’s a lot of good restaurants with great food, but Dog Haus’ combination of great people, food and success makes them stand out from the rest. We’re thrilled to collaborate with this innovative brand and serve as a valuable partner alongside them in the franchise development space.”
Dog Haus is an award-winning concept known for its gourmet hot dogs, sausages, burgers, plant-based and fried chicken offerings, creative full bar program and The Absolute Brands (virtual concepts). Founded by longtime friends Hagop Giragossian, Quasim Riaz and André Vener, the first Dog Haus opened in Pasadena, California in 2010. Dog Haus was honored with Nation’s Restaurant News’ prestigious MenuMasters Award and has been named in Fast Casual’s Top 10 Movers and Shakers list since 2020. Most recently, Franchise Times announced the winners of its annual Zor Awards and Dog Haus came out on top – winning the prized honor of “Top Brand to Buy.” The brand continues to garner critical acclaim for its signature all beef dogs and hand-crafted sausages with no added nitrates, and 100% Black Angus beef burgers – all of which are made with hormone- and antibiotic-free meat and served on grilled King’s Hawaiian rolls. With its mission to sustainably feed everyone who walks through their doors, Dog Haus also offers a diverse lineup of plant-based burger, sausage and chicken creations. While striving to establish itself as a “haus”-hold name, the brand has helped raise enough funds from its innovative collaboration with high-profile chefs to feed over two million kids in need through its national charity partner No Kid Hungry.
