Humor and quirkiness abound in the Hurts Brand, and Zombie Dogs and Fries will have a distinct personality, too. “Our theme is zombies, Kas says. “It’s going to be super fun. Clean zombie—not gory zombie.”
For added effect while construction is underway, chains adorn the doors, "do not enter" signs are posted, and a projector makes it look as if zombies are entering the building at all times. Unique hashtags are in the works, too.
So when can you get your paws on these zombie dogs? “It would be cool to shoot for an October opening, but I just don’t know,” Kas says. If things go as planned, an October opening would be ideal for a zombie-themed walk/run that would kick off the grand opening celebration. After that, Kas says they’re anticipating normal and late-night hours—but not 24/7 service like Hurts Donut.
In the meantime, the Zombie Dogs partners are working around the clock to come up with more mind-blowing flavors. In addition, the restaurant is working to solidify a concept in which every meal sold feeds a child through Convoy of Hope.
