Our Story

Opportunity is barking – and MUTTS Canine Cantina® has answered.

At last count, over 90 million pet dogs are wagging their tails in U.S. households. From millennials to empty-nesters, dog people are the driving force behind a booming pet industry – expected to top $64 billion by the end of this year.

MUTTS™ is an innovative fast casual dog friendly restaurant/bar and dog park concept that is unrivaled in its space, presenting a franchise opportunity that offers delicious food for people and snacks for dogs, a beer/wine/cocktail cantina, and adjacent off-leash parks for small and large dogs. MUTTS™ allows dog lovers to enjoy all their favorite things in one place: fantastic bar and grill, a great social and entertainment scene, and a fun, clean, safe outdoor environment for your four-legged friend.

MUTTS™ is a place where dogs can run, exercise and play in the fresh air – and dog owners can relax and socialize. The private dog park offers daily passes, monthly subscriptions, or annual memberships. And, there is no admittance fee to eat in the cantina.

For people and pooches – MUTTS Canine Cantina® is the best of both worlds and one of the best franchise investments!
