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 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!

Quotable Quotes

“Our pup Bailey loves Mutts! We get her a pup-sicle and a frozen Moscow Mule for ourselves! They’re fried, sandwiches, fried pickles, and shakes are really good too. Yappy Hour has amazing drink specials too! We go for the $3 frozen drinks. Plenty of space for the dogs to run around and play!”

Denis A.
Restaurant visitor, Dallas, TX

“This place is the best! I took my 6-year-old here for some fun on a Sunday afternoon. You can come play with the dogs, even if you don’t have a dog. SCORE! I had the low carb burger, yum, and the salt and pepper fries, yum again! Don’t forget about Yappy Hour!!”

Barbra F.
Restaurant visitor, Balch Springs, TX

“We had such a great time here! I got a burger on a lettuce wrap pretty good stuff! We also got dog desserts. The assistant manager stopped by to visit us and we appreciated how great she was with our dogs. We love having a dog-oriented place to go. Great job guys, keep up the great work!”

Sarah F.
Restaurant visitor, Arlington, TX

“We really enjoyed coming to Mutts. My dog, Moose, gets really excited with meeting other dogs and it’s nice that I can relax and meet up with friends while he socializes. The big dog park section is pretty extensive with a lot of space for dogs to run around. I’m sure Moose would love to come back!”

Sam L.
Restaurant visitor, Allen, TX

“Great facility – 2 separate areas for small & for big dogs with chairs. Picnic tables with fans that blow mist to cool you off while you drink, eat and watch your pup make friends. Service was incredible! Everyone was super nice, respectful, and friendly to talk to.”

“Really cool place for dog dads/moms. I had a fun doggie date here. I like their set up, easy to sign up when going for the first time. Love the free bath station. Great casual spot. Mutts sauce on their sandwiches and burgers is awesome!”
