The Doughy Dog Training & Employment Program provides training and transitional employment through a Food Truck for those in need of employment skills, including the homeless, those that have not worked in the workforce in a long period of time or have barriers to finding employment such as a criminal background or a history of substance abuse.
In 2007 Arundel House of Hope was one of six organizations selected out of forty applicants to participate in the University of Baltimore’s Social Enterprise training program. This program paired non-profits with the University’s business students with the goal of developing an actionable business plan with which to launch a social enterprise, The Doughy Dog – a mobile gourmet hot dog business. With a drive up and order component, The Doughy Dog operates daily, providing quality foods and excellent customer service to the community and employment for up to ten homeless individuals in a number of positions from customer service to management.
The Doughy Dog is available for catering and special events. Contact Mario Berninzoni (410) 863-4888, firstname.lastname@example.org
