Founded in 2013 and franchising since 2018, Mutts Canine Cantina is a unique private dog park, bar and restaurant concept. In terms of the footprint, it should be at least 1,100 square feet and a minimum of 3/4 acre. Franchise owners benefit from multiple revenue streams: membership, alcohol, food, branded merchandising, breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, and Yappy Hour. Start-up costs range between $1,528,740 – $2,365,543, which includes a $40,000 franchise fee. Royalties are 7% of gross sales. The brand is committed to quality and consistency at every location and has developed systems which make duplicating the concept for franchisees. In addition to an initial training program, franchisees are provided with site selection assistance, operational support, recipe and menu development, marketing and brand building support, vendor and equipment selection, a Point of Sale System, and grand opening support.
The ideal candidate is a multi-unit franchise owner who has a passion for animals. For people, the brand's menu includes the Mutt Burger, Grilled Cheese & Hot Pickle Sandwich, Daily Popcorn, Fried Pickles, and more. For our four-legged friends, the brand offers pupsicles and Doggie Dogs. The pupsicles are made of peanut butter and beef broth, and the Doggie Dog is a 100% beef frank. Drinks on the menu include lemonade, iced tea, soda, and more. Cocktails include Barkarita, Texas Mule, Ranch Waters, and more. Since its inception, MUTTS has spread across Texas, with locations set to open in Arizona and Colorado. Franchise owners benefit from a proven system and a unique concept that has little to no competition in the marketplace for pets.
