Dog Haus announced today that it signed an agreement with ROC Ventures to bring the gourmet hot dog, sausage and burger concept to Wisconsin.

ROC Ventures plans to open five Dog Haus locations throughout the Milwaukee and Waukesha areas, with the first set to open in the summer of 2022 at the multimillion-dollar Ballpark Commons development, Milwaukee’s newest mixed-use entertainment district.

The new Dog Haus locations will serve the brand’s full menu including gourmet dogs, sausages, burgers, fried chicken creations and sides.

Haus burgers feature 100 percent genetically tested, humanely raised, Black Angus beef using no hormones and no antibiotics in one-of-a-kind creations. Popular burgers include The Hangover, with white American cheese, smoked bacon, Haus chili, fried egg and mayo, and the Holy Aioli, featuring white American cheese, smoked bacon, caramelized onions and garlic aioli. 

Sandwiches, wings and fried chicken sandwiches like the Bad Mutha Clucka and The Hot Chick will round out the menu. Dog Haus' chicken is humanely raised and hormone / antibiotic free.

The first Dog Haus location will be attached to the new Luxe Golf development within Ballpark Commons, which will include 57 golf entertainment bays, a second restaurant and a beer garden.

The Ballpark Commons development encompasses 265 apartments, 145 senior living units, a medical office, an indoor performance center, office and retail space, a baseball stadium, The Rock Sports Complex and a skiing and tubing hill.

Luxe Golf’s future development plans include a 98-room hotel, a retail building, a brewpub and a mixed-use apartment building.

“To say that Ballpark Commons is badass is an understatement,” said Dog Haus Director of Franchise Development Erik Hartung. “So, we couldn’t be more excited that ROC Ventures is planning to make Dog Haus’ Wisconsin debut in their phenomenal development. "
