Pet “eatertainment” is setting the stage as the next big thing in restaurant and retail space. At the center of this growing trend is MUTTS Canine Cantina — a restaurant/cocktail bar/dog park concept that offers a social oasis for dog lovers and their four-legged partners alike.
MUTTS Canine Cantina is a dog-friendly restaurant and private dog park that offers a full bar that includes local craft beer, famous Barkarita’s, MUTTS Original Chicken Sandwiches, mouth-watering fried pickles and decadent milkshakes. Bring your canine best friends to the perfect spot to enjoy the outdoors and indulge in flavorful food and drinks. MUTTS Canine Cantina also offers area developer and franchise opportunities to qualifying entrepreneurs.
The concept was to create a dog-friendly destination for dog owners who may not have access to a backyard or green space. MUTTS social dog parks feature two fully-enclosed, fenced lawn spaces where off-leash pups of all sizes can release energy, exercise, run freely and play safely in both shaded and unshaded areas, while their owners relax and socialize.
Those who sign up as members of MUTTS also receive special membership benefits. These perks include:
- Unlimited dog park visits
- Attendants that provide water and clean up
- Exclusive/early access to events and promotions
- Partner discounts
James Mahan and Gregory Snider, developers of Solms Landing — a mixed-use shopping center featuring retail, office, multi-family housing, hospitality and entertainment spaces — signed a multi-unit agreement to bring MUTTS Canine Cantina’s unique restaurant/cocktail bar/dog park concept to the new upscale development.
“Incorporating a business like MUTTS Canine Cantina into our plans for Solms Landing was an obvious choice,” said Mahan. “There are more than 2,000 apartment units located within a one-mile radius of the development, and many of those residents are dog owners looking for dog-friendly entertainment opportunities.”
MUTTS is rapidly expanding throughout Texas with two successful locations in Dallas and Fort Worth and multiple locations in development. MUTTS signed a franchise deal to expand to New Braunfels, Texas. Anticipated to open in fall 2020, this marks the first MUTTS location in the greater San Antonio area and the third Texas location, with additional franchise units to come over the next seven years. It will also be part of the new upscale mixed-use development.
“MUTTS creates a true community for dog lovers to socialize with like-minded friends, and we look forward to sharing the MUTTS experience with New Braunfels and beyond,” concluded Mahan.
