Dogg Haus expands to Twin Cities


Milwaukee's homegrown sausage chain, The Dogg Haus, has reached an area development agreement with Minneapolis-based Freestyle Enterprises, LLC, to expand into the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area.

According to owner Mazen Muna, Freestyle will be opening five Dogg Haus locations in the Twin Cities over the next five years. The first Dogg Haus slated for the Twin Cities metro will be opening in downtown Hudson, Wis., on the Minnesota border, in early August.

The Hudson Dogg Haus will be incorporated as a pilot into one of Freestyle's existing frozen yogurt stores. Stand-alone Dogg Haus locations are in the works for Minneapolis and Roseville, Minn., too.

Just as Mazen Muna built The Dogg Haus from the ground up, Dave Brandner, a 1997 graduate of Marquette University, conceived of and founded Freestyle.

"I have a ton of respect and admiration for what Mazen has built, having traveled a similar path in life starting a business from square one," Brandner said in a release. "I am extremely excited to help grow Mazen's concept outside of Milwaukee. Mazen's track record of success, excellence, and quality speaks for itself, and it is one I look forward to replicating in the Twin Cities."

Muna says other states are in the works.
