OUR LOADED DAWG W KALE CAESAR
OUR LOADED DAWG W KALE CAESAR

      Yeah Dawg is an organic plant based pop up hot dog cart that serves soy and gluten free dawgs along with an assortment of home made fermented krauts, pickled toppings, coconut bacon, and our own cashew mayonnaise. Our dawg are home made and hand-rolled using a blend of beets, potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, sunflower seeds, GF flours, herbs and spices. They are unique because they are the only soy and gluten free dawg to hit the market.

     Yeah Dawg offers a healthy, fun, and easy alternative to greasy processed foods.  We are driven by a belief that human beings can be healed by food, and no animals should ever be harmed.  By offering hungry people of all ages healthy, plant-based alternative to street-style food, Yeah Dawg aims to satisfy cravings from coast to coast.  

Mission Statement

Delicious, plant-based, healing food― street style!

 What we do now!

     Yeah Dawg is currently operated as a pop-up hot dog cart, vending at farmers’ markets, specialty street fairs, private parties, and charity events.  Our fans is how we have thrived. They are supportive and dedicated. We also are part of an amazing vegan vendor community that has given us lots of support and help. We also sell our dawgs on Good Eggs!, a local online marketplace. We are really limited right now.

Our Ultimate Vision

 We have 2 main objectives. One is to develop a wholesale operation that will sell through supermarkets and restaurants. The other is to establish a flagship outlet that would offer Yeah Dawg products, as well as other healthy, plant-based, gluten- and soy-free food and beverages.  We are currently looking for retail space in Harlem and in Brooklyn. 

Without money we will continue to stay the same. We are renting kitchen space by the hour and have to fight over machines. We can barely find enough fairs to pop up in. We need to grow! 

Restaurant Startup 

We recently has the opportunity of being on Restaurant Startup. Although it was a great experience and we have learned a lot form it. We did not get an investment. We did not receive money. That is why we need your help!


What we need and are asking for?

We are asking for 25,000 to help us grow. To do exactly what we want we need about $200,000 and are currently seeking investors to cover that. 

With 25,000 it will cover a lawyer and help us cover the expenses of all our permits and licenses. It will also help cover equipment needed to mass produce our dawgs. It will help us begin a test run at a copacker so the dawgs can be distributed nationwide!

With more money we can start to secure a retail space that we will share with our sister business Sweetwork, an organic worker owned worker cooperative grocery store. 

Whats In It For you?

You are why we have even gotten this far! With your help there will be access to our dawgs everywhere plus a better extensive menu and more soy and gluten free plant based meat product development! And there are some amazing prizes! T-shirts, Party Packs, Loaded Dawgs , Catering Parties, Name your own dawg!

We need your help to make this a reality. We are really really limited in what we can do now and are dying to be able to grow! We wanna serve our dawgs daily and we need them to be more accessible locally and nationally and eventually internationally. We are committed to making delicious, healthy, comforting plant based foods accessible to people everywhere.

Risks and challenges

The risks if we do not raise this money We will not get to grow as a business.
Many food projects are subject to unexpected costs, permitting issues, construction problems, as well as unexpected delays. All of the pieces for this project are in place. The biggest challenge that we face is the success of this campaign and getting the dawgs out fast enough to be ready for you.

The money raised from all of your contributions will get this project going. If we do not reach our goal, we do not get any of your contributions.

Thank you all for your continued support!! We would not be where we are today without all of you :-)
