Dozens of customers who used to frequent Dog Haus Biergarten in Richardson for gourmet hot dogs are now using the restaurant as a mini grocery store.

Last week, the business launched Haus Market, a selection of grocery products for purchase. Items include Dog Haus’ signature antibiotic- and hormone-free meats as well as cheese, butter, eggs, french fries, bread, cookies, bottled water, toilet paper and paper towels.

The goal of the market is to give residents access to essential groceries while also putting certain items the restaurant no longer needs to good use, Dog Haus operator Lauren Santagati said. With dine-in service temporarily suspended, the facility has little need for toilet paper, for example.

“It has been received very well,” she said. “I can see it on their faces when they come in—they’re like, ‘Oh, my God! Y’all have hot dogs, burgers and wings, but you also have toilet paper for sale!’”

Santagati said the market is being used by people from all walks of life but that seniors and other high-risk groups have been especially grateful to be able to skip a trip to the grocery store.

“The people that are at higher risk—when they come out, they are so supportive,” she said. “They are really, really appreciative.”

The restaurant is able to source the products at wholesale prices, and Santagati said the business has marked items up modestly in an effort to relieve the financial strain many residents are experiencing.

“We have discounted it a lot just to help people out because we know a lot of people have lost their jobs,” she said.

Groceries from the market are available for takeout and curbside pickup, Santagati said. The restaurant can also add groceries to a third-party delivery service order if the customer calls the restaurant and pays over the phone.
