We show that quasi-minimizers of non-homogeneous energy functionals are locally Hölder continuous and satisfy the Harnack inequality on metric measure spaces. We assume that the space is doubling and supports a Poincaré inequality. The proof is based on the De Giorgi method, combined with the expansion of positivity technique.
