Alpha Dawgs puts safety over profit

Businesses in North Carolina have been updating their face mask rules following Gov. Roy Cooper’s announcement that lifted most mandates for face coverings. It means that in most settings — indoors or outdoors — the state no longer requires North Carolinians to be socially distanced or wear a face mask.

However, Cooper said some restaurants, other businesses, and venues may continue to have restrictions or mask requirements but are no longer mandated to do so.

At Alpha Dawgs, we are still concerned for our employees’ and customers’ safety and are still requiring masks. We believe in putting safety before profits and realize that some may not agree with our stance and respect their right to do so. As a local restaurant that has felt the devastating economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on our business, we don’t believe political attacks concerning this issue accomplish anything positive for the community.

“No shirt, no shoes, no mask, no service. Most have never had any problem with business enforcing the first two parts to that saying and don’t believe the third is any more inconvenient to ensure others are comfortable and safe” says Hisine McNeill, owner of Alpha Dawgs

About Alpha Dawgs

Located at 6209 Rock Quarry Rd, Raleigh, NC 27610, Alpha Dawgs is a restaurant specializing in unique and flavorful hot dogs and other amazing dishes. They put their own delicious and spicy variation on the traditional hot dog. They top their New Jersey dawgs with tri-color peppers, onions, and fried potatoes, and rather than using a traditional bun; their dawgs are served in a fresh pita bun. They also offer vegetarian and vegan dawgs making it possible for everyone to enjoy an Alpha Dawgs meal. In addition to their specialty hot dogs, they also offer burgers, chicken, Philly cheesesteaks, and more.
