Dat Dog, the quirky hot dog joint that has three locations in New Orleans, is set to open several restaurants in Texas as it looks to expand through franchises in the South.
New Orleans CityBusiness reported B&G Food Enterprises LLC is set to open the first Dat Dog in Texas in 2018. A news release says there are no set locations at this time.
The company will begin with Houston locations before expanding to Dallas, Austin and San Antonio, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Dat Dog also has plans to open three restaurants in Baton Rouge, with the first one set to open later this year or in early 2018 under franchisee Prime Dog LLC.
Dat Dog announced earlier this year plans to put corporate-owned sites in downtown Lafayette this spring and near the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, Mississippi later this year.
