We are pleased to welcome one of Calgary’s most iconic independently-owned, fast casual food brands to the BONAFIDE roster.

TUBBY DOG has donned many hats (and wild toppings) since opening in 2005 on 17th Avenue, a cornerstone on the strip fondly referred to as “The Red Mile” thanks to the Calgary Flames’ playoff run in 2004.

Owner and trailblazer in the local nightlife and live music scene, Jon Truch was the first to transform humble fair food into kitschy gourmet fare. Combinations like peanut butter, jam with Cap’n Crunch (the PBJ) and wasabi, pickled ginger with seaweed (the SUMO) were introduced to Calgarians’ discerning palates. An appearance on Food Network’s “You Gotta Eat Here” catapulted Tubby Dog onto must-eat lists throughout the country.

Like many restaurants in 2020, Tubby Dog has made an exciting leap into packaged goods. The Ukey (house made Ukrainian sausage – a family
recipe) and scratch made mustards are now on shelves at specialty shops and grocers including A1 Bodega, Blush Lane, BITE Grocer & Eatery and LUKES.

BONAFIDE is proud to support Jon and the team at Tubby Dog this summer to launch a sizzling, all-inclusive, portable meal experience to delight Tubby Dog’s loyal fans and entice visitors. Stay tuned for more!
