Here’s how restaurant owners David and Lee VanArtsdalen broke the news on the Zombie Dogz Facebook page:
“Starting Monday (June 5), we will be adding ZD coneys to our Zombie Dogz mix, and here’s what we’re doing with them: We are introducing a complete kids meal. It comes with a kids’ coney of THEIR choice, which could be a plain dog, or any available gourmet dog offered in store at that time, plus, a yogurt, sliced apples (or seasonal fruit), and their choice of a beverage: juice pack, soda, or water.”

But the restaurant owners pondered what else they could do with the coneys — which are smaller in size than the restaurant’s regular “Dogz” — and came up with a sampler platter of sorts. Starting today, customers can order their choice of any 3 coneys in any of ZD’s gourmet dog options available at the store at that time, and add a side of tater tots, for $10.

“We always get people who want to try more than one, or have kids who can’t eat a whole one, so now I feel like your dreams are coming true,” the VanArtsdalens said.

In addition, Zombie Dogz also unveiled a new online ordering system through its web site, www.zombiedogzdayton.com.
“You pick and order what you want to your specifications, from everything you’d want to purchase in the store — Dogz, beverages, side items, cupcakes, you name it, you can do it. You pay online, and then you pick up at our store. That’s it!”
