Not Dogs Needs You!

We know, we’ve been chatting about it for a while now…the Not Dogs restaurant is on its way, and we are looking for a passionate team of people to join our Crew!

Not Dogs is known for putting its customers first and delivering exciting, unique vegetarian fast-food and we are looking for people who effortlessly want to create positive associations with the Not Dogs brand and genuinely want to brighten up a customer’s day.

We are on a mission to make fast-food meat-free and we hope with every step we take to help people access Not Dogs on a regular basis we will achieve our dream of Not Dogs going global!

But ‘Big Things Often Have Small Beginnings’ and we plan to celebrate every tiny victory that our crew help us to achieve on our Not Dogs journey.

In 2014 we sold our first Not Dog and we spent two years travelling around the UK in a little purple zig-zagged food truck perfecting our product and meeting Not Dogs fans, taking hundreds of #SausageSelfie pictures.

Now our crew will join us at our greatest moment to date, the first of many Not Dogs restaurants!

If this sounds exciting to you then we'd really like you to get in touch & send us your C.V.

Email smile@katieandjane.com and we’ll send you all the application details!

Sausage Showcase on Hello Houmous

Who would have thought that houmous would be delicious on a Not Dog!? Not us… until we tried it and loved it!

Hello Houmous

Hello Houmous is our Not Dog for the refined palate, although who doesn’t love houmous anyway!? Our simple houmous recipe is perfectly complimented with tasty, freshly roasted red peppers and smoked paprika.

No wonder it’s a favourite of many of our Not Dogs fans - and secretly us too!

Not Dogs: Ooh Sauce-y! Why we love Heinz & French’s

What would our Not Dogs menu be without the addition of tomato ketchup & tangy mustard?!

French's and Heinz

Katie & Jane always knew that having grown up on ‘tomato sauce’ there was absolutely no substitute for us and our Not Dogs fans – nothing else quite touches the legend that is Heinz Tomato Ketchup, a staple in everyone’s food cupboard and the saucy sweetness that you’ll find in The Original Frank, Breakfast Muffin and our perfect Plain Jane.

But what about its partner in crime? Nothing but French’s quite cuts the mustard for us! Tangy sauciness that you’ll find in The Original Frank, Plain Jane, and any concoction Kickin’ Katie can create for herself.

French's and Heinz

We simply love these sauces & how they look creatively zig-zagged and swirled all over our menu items!

French's and Heinz

These premium quality products aren’t going anywhere when we open our restaurant in the next few months, we hope to ‘ketchup’ with all soon!

Not Dogs: Back in the Kitchen!

The first Not Dogs restaurant opening is quick approaching and, of course, part of the excitement is designing the new menu to feed hungry Not Dog lovers! We got straight into the kitchen to experiment with some new toppings, the Quorn vegan range and our very first Not Dogs burger!

Katie and Jane

Starting with breakfasts… a ‘Bali Breakfast’ one-bomb topped with superfood avocado, perfect for when you’re a bit peckish but fancy something light and then The Breakfast Muffin which is just delicious and moreish at all times of the day!

The Breakfast Muffin

There’s some strange going-ons in the Not Dogs kitchen… we even tested the perfect ketchup swirl so every bite is as tasty as the last!


Excited to bring you some new Not Dogs to the menu, will the Jamaican Me Crazy Dog make the cut!? With all that tangy, spicy, fresh goodness we hope it does!


Should have done the burger tasting first… or saving the best until last! We managed to get through 10 different types of burger recipe, and despite being very full we ate every last bit! That’s how good the first Not Dogs burger is!


We cannot wait to launch the menu in the restaurant very soon!

Hello Summer! Sausage Showcase: The Bali Breakfast Dog

Inspired by our travels to Bali, this Breakfast Dog is truly special, in fact it has been crowned a ‘favourite’ by our testing panel already and it hasn’t even made the main stream menu yet!

We are so excited to bring you the Bali Breakfast Dog, a fresh, zingy and satisfying mini Not Dog, designed to put a little sunshine in your step and set you up for the day!

Celebrating the amazing avocado, with of course a very subtle kick of mild chilli (for Kickin’ Katie) the Bali Breakfast Dog will be available all day in the Not Dogs restaurant – coming soon!

Not Dog topped with our secret smashed avocado recipe, scrambled egg, crumbled feta cheese and a small sprinkle of chilli flakes

Sausage Showcase on the Hello Houmous

Just like one should never say who their favourite child is, or in our case, favourite pet… we feel we should never favour one of our Not Dog creations over another but secretly (or not so now) Hello Houmous has a massive place in our hearts!


It could be because it’s just so surprising that houmous goes perfectly on a Not Dog, or it could be because we spent so long debating whether it was ‘houmous’ or ‘hummus’ but the summery Hello Houmous is certainly here to stay!

Celebrating the #SausageSelfie at Not Dogs!

Last week we marked our 2nd birthday at Not Dogs, which also means that our signature tagline the #sausageselfie is also the grand old age of 2!

We created the idea of the #sausageselfie together one afternoon in the run up to our very first festival and neither of us could have imagined how much people would love posing for a ‘selfie’ with their Not Dog back then!

Since then we’ve collected hundreds of bright, colourful, fun and wonderful ones and been so happy to see people sharing their #sausageselfie photos from our social media channels with their friends when they get home.

So in celebration of the #sausageselfie today let’s take a look at some of our favourite ones!
