Not Dogs Summer #SausageShowcase - The Kickin’ Katie Nacho Dog

Summer is finally here and there is nothing more we enjoy than devouring a Kickin' Katie Nacho Dog in the summer sunshine!



Named after Not Dogs co-founder Katie who loves a bit of spice, the Kickin' Katie Nacho Dog is our second most popular Not Dog after The Original Frank. It’s especially a winner on hot, sunny days - the cooling guacamole, creamy cheese and spicy jalapenos work perfectly together with the added crunch of our crushed nachos!



You can get the Kickin’ Katie Nacho Dog (available veggie and vegan) from the Crew at Not Dogs Birmingham or Chessington World of Adventures - we promise you won’t be disappointed but we can’t promise you won’t become a Kickin’ Katie addict!

World Meat Free Week

Last week was World Meat Free Week and Not Dogs were (and still are!) proud to be a supporter of this fantastic campaign alongside many other fantastic brands.


The website www.worldmeatfreeday.com makes a really interesting visit…

Check out the sustainability calculator and calculate the impact of going meat-free. For example, if just you went meat-free one day a week (and we hope Not Dogs make that easier for you!) you’ll save the carbon equivalent of boiling 1,165 kettles!

Over on the recipe section you can enjoy our ‘Jamaican-Me-Crazy’ dog inspired by Jane’s visit to Jamaica a few years ago. Made with jalapeƱos, crispy lettuce, mango mayonnaise and jerk sauce, it will awaken your taste buds and bring a touch of the Jamaican sunshine to your BBQ! 

And of course, the blog is jam-packed with interesting information to make going meat-free any week of the year simple!

Reducing your meat intake for any amount of time - from one meal or one day to a whole week or month makes all the difference so we encourage you to continue 'World Meat Free Week' on into the future! Don't forget every Monday there's 20% off our 'Pizza Mark-herita Dog' in celebration of Meat-Free Monday at Not Dogs Birmingham!

Opening a Restaurant is a Rollercoaster of Emotions!

After opening our first restaurant in December 2016 the ups and downs of actually opening (let alone the day-to-day running) quickly evaporated from our minds but last month we found ourselves there again opening our second location at Chessington World of Adventures!


The opportunity arose over nine months ago and we just couldn’t miss out on the chance to be the first dedicated meat-free business inside a theme park! Opening the restaurant has taken a lot of hard-work and grit, not only from us but from our fantastic staff at the Birmingham store and also the great team at Chessington World of Adventures themselves. 



Through the hardest work we found many moments to laugh… from when Katie had her head stuck in a bin for over half an hour (really!) to when Jane opened the oven too quickly and nearly knocked herself out! 

That’s what makes the entrepreneurial life so fun and stressful… it really does throw a rollercoaster of emotions (excuse the pun) at you every single day but - we wouldn’t have it any other way and seeing so many happy customers and fantastic reviews already (see below) makes all the hard-work worthwhile.



From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to everyone who supports Not Dogs.
