Dat Dog Franchise Overview
About Dat Dog
Founded in 2011 and franchising since 2017, Dat Dog is a New Orleans-based restaurant chain that specializes in gourmet hot dogs and sausages that can be dressed in a selection of over 30 different toppings. The critically acclaimed restaurant - touted by The New York Times, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal and The Food Network - currently has four locations open and operating in Louisiana, with one additional location under development in Houston, Texas.
The first Dat Dog opened in a 475-square-foot shack in a post-Hurricane Katrina neighborhood on February 14, 2011. More affectionately referred to as a hot dog stand to remind guests of happy times at a picnic, ball park, concert or vacation, CEO and Founder Constantine Georges wanted to put a smile on his neighbors’ faces. Dat Dog did just that and began expansion in New Orleans. The company currently operates restaurants on New Orleans’ Frenchmen Street, Freret Street, Magazine Street and at Lakeside Mall.
