That first bite.
The moment your teeth sink into our plump 1/5lb hot dog, the juices melt into your mouth as flavors start oozing out. Savor the taste of our homemade sauces spicing up the tip of your tongue as the aroma from our fresh baked buns tickle the root of your mouth.
We are Daredevil Dogs, a little shop in Columbus Ohio cooking up a big dream.
To bring all the people of Ohio together and connect them through food!
Ohioans, Daredevil Dogs is a place where you get to be you! We want this to be your happy place, somewhere to kick back and relax with friends and family and (if you’re in the mood for it) meeting new people!
When you’re in the right place, everything seems better. Jokes are funnier. The people are more energized and everyone starts feeling more sociable!
We imagine our shop to be surrounded by this invisible aura of awesomeness and we’re hoping to bring it all across Central Ohio with our very own Daredevil Dogs food truck!
Our current store in Columbus Ohio only fits 10 people! We’re constantly turning people down and seeing the disappointment kills us!
One day, something clicked. We love hearing your crazy stories and found that many of you travel crazy distances in hopes of trying our dogs!
So we thought, instead of you coming to us, why don’t we bring the Daredevil Dogs experience to you?
With this food truck, we can take the energy from our shop and bring it on the road! It lets us become more accessible and we get to see more of your beautiful smiles!
Together we can make Central Ohio feel like one big neighborhood! You’ll start seeing us at local festivals, events, and parties while also taking part in local charity work! A big part of who we are comes from the Ohio community; it’s only fair that we do our best to support it!
We are three friends, Bill, Mike and Tomos who share a passion for great food. We spent most of our lives working in fine dining restaurants and saw firsthand how food can bring people together.
The food was great, but something felt missing. These higher-end restaurants have too much formality. Everything seems too uptight and it's not a place where you can be yourself.
- Take the cooking techniques used in fine dining.
- Apply it to a simple dish everyone can love.
- Serve it in a comfortable and inviting atmosphere.
Daredevil Dogs needs to be a place where you can feel comfortable being yourself. So the dish we serve needs to match that personality! It has to be friendly and down to earth, just like you!
The seemingly simple and approachable hot dog!
An American classic, we wanted to make sure we use the best ingredients and give it our very own Ohio twist!
Your standard hot dog is shrouded in mystery. Nobody can tell what’s inside!For us, only the highest-quality ingredients make it to your hot dog.
Everything we use is sourced locally. This not only makes our food taste fresher and better, but it helps support local businesses as well! That means using Ohio fresh meats, and baked buns delivered from local Ohio bakeries! We make all our delicious sauces and toppings from scratch using ingredients purchased at the local supermarkets.
We want to bring our food to as many people as possible, in all communities across Central Ohio –we’ve contacted other food trucks, bars, festival organizers and office buildings to finalize our space. It’s important that we are active and involved with the community.
If you have an office building, high school football game, birthday or work party you want DareDevil Dogs to take part in, tell us and we’ll do our best to be there!
Reach out on Twitter, Facebook or by email so we can bring our daring dogs to you!
Good news! We’ve found our dream truck! Your money helps us outfit, modify and class up the truck, making sure it reaches the Daredevil Dogs quality of standard. That means upgraded kitchen equipment, set up costs, insurance fees and plenty of other expenses that come with starting a mobile restaurant.
$12,000- Thank You! We want to make our good truck look great and support the local community. If we can reach our stretch goal we will work with local artist Andrew Kern to hand paint our truck. The truck will be a great representation of DareDevil Dogs and the local art community.
Risks and challenges
Things don’t always go according to plan. One of the risks we may run into is delay in getting our truck on the road. We will never serve you anything less than the best, so if that causes a delay then we will have to make do.
Of course, we are doing everything we can to make sure this goes smoothly. Two of us have worked on food trucks before so we’ve really seen it all.
The other risk is underestimating the amount of money we need. However, we have carefully calculated all the costs and expect everything to go according to plan!
It has been an unbelievable ride so far and hopefully we can keep it rolling (this is not a food truck pun). We want to thank all of you for your support and can’t wait to get this show on the road (again not a food truck pun)!
