According to recent permits, local favorite Daddy’s Dogs is looking into opening a new brick-and-mortar location in Madison, the first for the area. The upcoming location will have an address of 1508 Gallatin Pike S. near Eastside Bowl. An opening timeline is forthcoming, though is likely to be next year.
News of expanding to Madison comes as the Music City brand recently announced its seventh location to open inside The Factory at Franklin earlier this summer. With his current six physical locations, two on the horizon, and three food carts, owner and founder Sean Porter isn’t slowing down anytime soon. When What Now Nashville last spoke with the boss Big Daddy about future growth, Porter responded “We have some stuff up our sleeves ;)” in an email.
Known as Nashville’s favorite gourmet hot dog business, Daddy’s Dogs is regarded for its affordable yet flavor-packed hot dogs. It’s commonly seen at farmers markets across the area as well as venues such as Marathon Music Works and Ascend Amphitheater. The under $10 menu encompasses many different dog options, including a cream cheese, grilled onion, and sriracha-topped dog called The Seattle, and a selection of side dishes like tater tots, chili, cole slaw, and mac and cheese. There’s even a vegan sausage option for plant-based folks.
