After 13 fun-filled years, Dogwater Caf?, the legendary dog-themed sports caf?'s of Tampa Bay Florida, is finally ready to offer franchises to motivated, fun-loving, hard-working, restaurant people.
There's plenty of competition in the Tampa Bay area, and Dogwater Caf? has earned a reputation for having the best wings, burgers, chicken sandwiches, and salads, along with the best sports coverage, and the best atmosphere for the whole family to enjoy.? It's pretty obvious: We're proud of our restaurants. Come see why.
A Dogwater Caf? is comparable in size and seating capacity to many other casual dining restaurants. While the investment in a Dogwater Caf? can be significantly less expensive, it's up-scale menu, and full service bar permit it to generate higher revenues, higher profits, and enhanced cash flows.
Each Dogwater Cafe varies slightly in building size and shape, but all share a common decor with brick and wood covered walls, hand-crafted wood tables and booths, and a richly polished wood bar. Everywhere you look, you'll find framed pictures of dogs; magazine covers, advertisements, celebrity dogs, celebrities with their dogs, etc. Among the pictures are TV monitors? -lots of them-? (between 45 and 65 is the norm) connected to (up to) ten satellite-receivers. There is also? a wide variety of video games, dart boards, and pool tables.???????????????????????? ???
The Dogwater Cafe has become one of Tampa Bay 's most popular places to eat, drink, socialize, and watch the big game. Oh yeah, did we mention that all of our food is served in these great big, colorful Dog-Food bowls?
