Podcast Summary

In the annals of sausage and hot dog-dom, Dog Haus is something of a purebreed, taking the many lovers of sausages and other such semi-cylindrical types of meat to a new level of epicurean excellence that was previously reserved only for the most hoity-toity cuts of meat.

Shelly Whitehead talks with Dog Haus' Andre Vener about forthcoming plant-based offerings, cool cocktails and building on to the "Haus," so to speak, through system-wide growth.

But first, Fast Casual Executive Summit Editor Cherryh Cansler stops by to give us a preview of the Fast Casual Executive Summit in Austin in a little more than a week from now. Plus, a kind of weird surprise in this interview: We're pretty sure we actually heard Cherryh growl. Listen and see what you think.
