Dog Haus, the gourmet hot dog, sausage and burger fast food concept chain based in Pasadena, announced it has shifted to using all natural, vegetarian-fed pork, chicken, turkey, and beef raised without antibiotics or hormones in all its Haus dogs, sausages and burgers.

The change, a company-wide policy, comes at a time when Dog Haus is seeing meteoric growth, with 26 locations open across six states and more than 450 planned over the next several years, including expanding to the East Coast.

Also beginning Wednesday, Dog Haus’ proprietary hot dogs and sausages will be free of all added nitrates, containing only naturally occurring ones found in sea salt and celery powder.

“There is an ever-growing public interest in not only paying close attention to what we regularly consume, but where those ingredients come from, how animals are raised, and what effect these elements have on us,” said Dog Haus partner Hagop Giragossian. “Dog Haus has been deeply committed to creating food that not only tastes phenomenal but allows our guests to have peace of mind about its uncompromisable quality.”

The company said the shift is the result of a conscious decision to source proteins that are sustainable, traceable, and ultimately better for the consumer, including certified humanely-raised, hormone- and antibiotic-free Creekstone Farms Natural Premium Black Angus beef, premium Idaho Duroc Heritage pork and hormone- and antibiotic-free, vegetarian-fed chicken and turkey.
Dog Haus becomes the first hot dog and sausage concept to overhaul its core ingredients by sourcing the highest quality products and reinforcing the brand’s promise of superior quality.

The first Dog Haus was opened in Pasadena in 2010 by partners Hagop Giragossian, Quasim Riaz, and André Vener, three friends who share a passion for good food, creativity, quality, and commitment to the community.

Dog Haus has over 450 franchise locations in the works in Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Nevada, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Utah, and Wyoming.
