American Dairy Queen Corporation (ADQ), franchisor of the DQ brand, recently announced its new DQ Grill & Chill restaurant opening in Kansas City. Conveniently situated at 1100 W 135th Terrace, the restaurant is locally owned and operated by Abdul Quddus.
“What has drawn me to the Dairy Queen brand from the very beginning are the feelings of comfort and joy it brings to other people,” says Quddus. “I’m thrilled to be able to bring this franchise to the Kansas City community so DQ fans now have the chance to enjoy great food and classic frozen treats, while creating memories with their friends and family for years to come.”
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.
Abdul Quddus has been a part of the brand since 2011 opening locations throughout Kansas and Missouri. He is also gearing up to open the doors to another DQ Grill & Chill® in Grandview, Missouri at the end of August making it his 15th location.
“I love having the opportunity to create new jobs for people,” adds Quddus. “The ADQ team’s training and support allows me to do that and is what motivates me to continue bringing stores to communities throughout Kansas and Missouri.”
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.
