Dog Haus Kitchen Loop will serve its signature menu for delivery and pickup in addition to rolling out one-of-a-kind menu items from The Absolute Brands‘ delivery-only brands – Bad Mutha Clucka, Bad-Ass Breakfast Burritos, JAILBIRD and Plant B. Created by Dog Haus’ founders, The Absolute Brands is a new restaurant group comprised of Dog Haus and multiple unique concepts. Each of The Absolute Brands offers items that are off-shoots of Dog Haus’ signature menu.
“We are thrilled to open another Dog Haus in Chicago, making it even easier for locals to enjoy The Absolute Würst,” said Franchisee Jesse Koontz. “We’re also pumped to be serving new restaurant brands, created by the Dog Haus founders. These new brands, like Bad-Ass Breakfast Burritos, have really taken off in Lincoln Park and Avondale and we’re pleased to expand our delivery range with this new location. All these brands will be available through digital ordering, takeout and delivery, so it’s really convenient for everyone to try them out. We can’t wait to open next week!”

Dog Haus is an award-winning concept known for its gourmet hot dogs, sausages, burgers, as well as plant-based and fried chicken creations. Founded by longtime friends Hagop Giragossian, Quasim Riaz and André Vener, the first Dog Haus opened in Pasadena, California in 2010. 2020 also marked Dog Haus’ 10th anniversary and the brand is poised for aggressive expansion into concert venues and virtual kitchens across the country. Dog Haus was recently honored with Nation’s Restaurant News’ “Menu Trendsetter” award, as part of its prestigious MenuMasters, and continues to garner critical acclaim for its signature all beef dogs and hand-crafted sausages with no added nitrates, 100% Black Angus beef burgers, and a fried chicken sandwich – all of which are made with hormone- and antibiotic-free meat and served on grilled King’s Hawaiian rolls. With the brand’s mission to sustainably feed everyone who walks through their doors, Dog Haus also offers plant-based burger and sausage proteins. In addition to continuing to establish itself as a “haus”-hold name, Dog Haus has helped raise enough funds to provide over one million meals to kids in need through its national charity partner No Kid Hungry. Dog Haus currently has 40+ locations nationwide, with 10+ in development.
