Dog Haus opening in Rockford, Illinois
Dog Haus is opening its next franchise location Saturday in Rockford, Illinois. Goalz Restaurant Group owns the unit at 7616 Walton St., and is giving customers free hot dogs on opening day, according to a company press release.
"We are thrilled to finally be opening Dog Haus in Rockford, and we can't wait to share the excitement with residents during our Free Haus Dog Day on December 16th," said David Clark, vice president of operations for Goalz Restaurant Group, in the release. "We know that Rockford residents will love Dog Haus because of our top quality delicious tasting food and our passion for giving back to the local community."
Goalz is partnering with the Rock River Valley Pantry by collecting non-perishable food items at the restaurant during the holiday season and will host fundraisers for the Rockford Rescue Mission, according to a company press release.
In addition to Haus Dogs, Dog Haus' full menu includes gourmet sausages, burgers, corn dogs, a fried chicken sandwich, sides, beer, cocktails and shakes.
Diners can complement their meals with a can of red or white wine, imbibe from a selection of draft and canned craft beer options or sip on hand-crafted cocktails. Each canned brew will be served in a Dog Haus koozie, a nod to backyard barbecues. Alternatively, all those with a classic PBR craving can get their lager fix with a brown paper bag-wrapped can, according to the release.
Founded by partners Hagop Giragossian, Quasim Riaz and André Vener, the first Dog Haus opened in 2010 in Pasadena, California. It now has 26 locations open in 19 states with confirmed expansion of more than 450 franchise locations, according to the release.
