I caught up with Jules to have a chat about why Wassup Dog has opened it’s cradty, new gourmet hot dog bistro in the heart of Fremantle.
Hot Dogs are makings waves in Fremantle, people already enjoy the fabulous bratwurst hot dogs sold for 6 years at Run Amuk on South Terrace.
Jules has always been a fan and is absolutely stoked to bring the flavour of Wassup Dog to the city in a more permanent home, 7 days a week.
The doors of Wassup Dog Gourmet Hot Dogs Fremantle (which incidentally prides itself on fresh Freo coffee to dine in or takeaway) have been open for nearly 5 months now and Jules said that “Being in Freo is everything, it means a lot, it’s where I have started.”
Fremantle has a rich and varied history, both ancient and modern. We have the oldest building in the state, the major port as well as being the heart of culture in the city. Fremantle is the place you have to bring any visitors to Perth.
When asked what he liked most about Freo, Jules said emphatically “The people! And Mojo’s” with a Snoop Dogg smile.
Fremantle has a strong business culture and a lot of foot traffic, so Wassup Dog is in the perfect position at 32 Market St to introduce as many people as they can to the crew and the taste.
Fremantle has a social consciousness and community vibe that is rare in Australia and Wassup Dog has a special love for anything and anybody that “makes Freo different and weird”.
Wassup Dog is just as much a community as a business and Jules said that “Wassup Dog love that more and more people want to be involved in what we do and the banter at the shop in Fremantle is always strong.”
I asked Jules how Run Amuk and Wassup Dog can make even better hot dogs and he replied that “competition is amazing, even if there is no such thing. We will both try and improve and perfect our dogs, it will bring the quality up on both sides and will attract more people. Competition is so important for business, if you have a small cafe and you are not happy about another one opening up next door then sorry; you are not business minded.”
Come down and see the lads for some market fresh cuisine and stay at our Frematle coffee shop & bistro takeaway for some Playstation, Connect 4, Hip Hop, coffee and French banter.
