American Dairy Queen Corporation recently announced its new DQ Grill & Chill restaurant opening in Dawson, Georgia. Conveniently situated at 633 Roundtree Dr., the restaurant is locally owned and operated by seasoned franchise business owners, Umang and Milan Patel.
Striking the perfect balance between yesterday and today, the DQ Grill & Chill® flagship concept modernizes guests’ dining experience by offering made-to-order lunch and dinner options including GrillBurgers, Chicken Strip Baskets and delicious hot sandwiches. DQ fans can also enjoy soft-serve favorites such as cones, sundaes and the signature Blizzard Treat.
A welcoming environment for all, each DQ Grill & Chill location features a modern, open-air grill, separate “Grill” and “Chill” sections, comfortable booths, large wooden tables, warm lighting and upbeat music.
“For us, bringing DQ Grill & Chill to Terrell County was an easy choice,” says Umang. “We’ve always been fans of what the brand represents to so many people. The Dawson community now gets to join in the tradition of enjoying great food and classic frozen treats. Milan and I are excited we have the opportunity to serve DQ fans for years to come.”
Umang and Milan Patel began their entrepreneurial careers after leaving their corporate jobs in 2003 and developing franchised hair salons as well as a retail package store. Since then, they have built several businesses together from the ground up in the past 15 years including Edible Arrangements, Newk’s Eatery and Best Western.
“Back in 2013, we opened a retail package store in Dawson and grew to love the community. We really wanted to bring a great franchise to this town to help it grow and prosper,” adds Milan. “The ADQ team’s dedication to providing the best training and support has impressed us. With the guidance of the leadership team, we’re confident it will help our business succeed.”
What began as the 10-cent sale of an unknown frozen treat in 1938 quickly boomed into one of the most well-known companies of all time. Maintaining its recipe for success throughout nearly 80 years, ADQ has more than 7,000 locations worldwide and is initiating a plan to add more than 70 new restaurants in the United States in 2019.
