FESTIVAL AND EVENT CATERING & CONCESSIONS
Serving from one of our Food Trucks or Catering Canopies, DH (Dawg House) Concessions is a Central-West Central Florida and Southwest Florida based “Gourmet” style Traditional and Niche Food Vendor, serving at festivals and special events, big or small, throughout the entire state of Florida. We are fully licensed, insured, and we take pride in serving, what we are often told, is the best food on the Mobile Food Vending trail.
TARGET CLIENT: Established Private Enterprise, Government, Institutional and Business Chamber Organizations.
WHY THE DAWG HOUSE WHEN THERE ARE SO MANY FOOD VENDORS TO CHOOSE FROM?
We place serving "Quality" dishes, well in front of "Volume and profit margins". We took the most popular convenient style foods, added a gourmet twist, and we prepare, cook and serve, what we are told, multiple times a day and at every venue we serve, is "The Best Food in the Whole Darn Festival!" Simply put, we prepare each meal, one at a time, as if we were preparing them for ourselves, and for that, we've become one of the busiest and most sought after Food Purveyors on the Festival Trail!
MENU SPACE: DH Concessions, and it's Brands below, contracts as either a "Main Foods Vendor" or "Single Item Vendor". For certains Festivals, Dawg House Concessions will contract multiple locations and brands, introducing multiple platforms to an established festival.
Options: As a "Main Foods Vendor", under the "Dawg House Grill" brand, we offer a stacked menu, with something for everyone in the family, including veggie options for our most popular "Philly" Sandwiches and Mac & Cheese Bowls.
Dads and Moms can feed the entire family at one stop, vs. visiting multiple stands or trucks to satisfy the family.
Quality: We use only fresh (Not canned or frozen) meats and veggies, and cook to order everything, resulting in Restaurant Quality Food, at a festival setting. Our Burgers are made with fresh Angus Beef, and our Steak Sandwiches (Philly’s) are made with freshly shaved Rib Eye or Prime Rib Steak. Our Mac & Cheese Bowls are made on the spot, using our own technique of recooking each portion, resulting in the best Mac & Cheese Bowls in a festival environment. Introduce options such as Shrimp Mac, Veggie Mac, etc., etc., and our Mac Bowls become the best on the Planet!
Portions: Everyone compliments our portions. Our regular size Mac Bowls are 2 lbs, our burgers are ½ & 1lb cuts, and our steak, chicken and sausage Philly’s are made with 8-10 oz of fresh meats; even our hand cut fries are portioned larger than most.
Price Point/Value: For the quality and portions customers receive, we are one of the most competitively priced food purveyors in the industry.
Capacity: 40-50 MPH! We fully understand the importance of balance between Presentation, Quality of Food, and Capacity to Serve Volume. We take capacity very seriously, and will always truck enough cooking and refrigeration equipment, and the staff to handle army size crowds; maintaining a benchmark of 4-8 minute turn times on our Main Foods Cooked to Order Items, and less than 2 minutes, on our Niche Brands Menus, such has Mac & Cheese, Tacos and Roasted Corn. This results in an average of 40-50 meals per hour, for our typical 4-5 man crew, and 20' foot mobile kitchen platform, serving our full "Major Food Menu" and a whole lot more with our Niche Menus.
Statistics: Dawg House is always in the top 10% busiest of food vendors at every show we contract, regardless of event type, or venue location. We are told time and time again, “The Best Burger”; “The Best Philly”; “The Best Mac Bowls”. Many customers see us for lunch, again for dinner, and back again the next day to try something else from our Menu. Many ask to take meals home to their friends and family. We truly believe we’ve captured our market share, and it’s not because of fancy signs, expensive truck wraps, and a carnival style - well lit up booth, but because we truly serve an excellent meal, at an affordable price point, and we offer menu items you just don’t see at an everyday event. Sure, every venue has burgers and cheesesteaks, but very few, cook to order ½ & 1lb gourmet burgers, offer fresh prime rib or rib eye steak sandwiches, and when was the last time you saw a full line of gourmet mac and cheese bowls?

THE FOOD WE SERVE
Since a very young age, cooking has always been our passion, and we cook and serve every meal, as if we were doing so for ourselves.
We did not hire a professional artist or a photographer to create perfect pictures for us to display. Below, are pictures of a few entrees, taken from our cell phone at live events; straight off the griddle or charbroiler, and right to our website & facebook page, so you can see what we and others mean by, "The best food at a festival"
"It was great to have you and your staff serving such awesome food at the festival on Saturday. I will definitely keep you in mind for any future events we have and absolutely invite you to vend at next year’s Music Festival!"
The Central Pasco Chamber of Commerce
Another successful event for the Dawg House. 4 Days in beautiful Daytona Beach for the National Cheerleading and Dance Finals. What an amazing event. Thank you everyone for stopping by for a meal!
