A business known for its unusual blend of restaurants and dog playing space may be building a new location in El Paso.
Mutts Canine Cantina says it would like to open the new outlet by the fall of 2021 at an undisclosed spot in the city.
With locations in Dallas and Forth Worth, the company offers a spacious fenced-in and off-leash park for dogs, along with an outdoor restaurant and beer garden for their human companions.
The park space is divided into two fenced lawn sections, one for larger canines and the other for smaller ones weighing less than 30 pounds.
The company was founded in 2013, offering, according to a press release, space for dogs to “release energy, exercise, run freely and play safely in both shaded and unshaded areas, while their owners relax and socialize.”
The spaces for both the dogs and human are designed by a professional architect with franchise investments in a Mutts Canine Cantina location costing as much as $1.2 million.
The company announced that it was considering opening another location in Austin last year, and currently has working plans for a spot in Tucson.
A membership-driven operation, the company enjoys a current combined membership of around 3,200 people who use the Dallas and Fort Worth locations.
“They plan to grow at a measured pace over the next several years, with a retail line of dog food and treats on the horizon as well,” the publication Nation’s Restaurant News noted of the company’s plans for building around a dozen new locations throughout the Southwest.
