Craft-Casual Food Maestro: Dog Haus’ Founding Partner André Vener

If a business takes care of its staff, the staff will take care of the business.

Dog Haus, a specialty hot dog and burger franchise, takes pride in how it treats its employees and franchisees.

The restaurant has earned staff-nominated awards for workplace culture, and founding partner André Vener has been rewarded in spades: Dog Haus now has over 50 locations across the U.S., and it was rated one of the Top 5 Places To Eat A Hot Dog In The US by CNN.

André discusses why deep empathy toward everyone on the payroll is so important - from cooks to fellow partners - and how being a soccer goalkeeper informed his ability to motivate.
