American Dairy Queen Corporation, franchisor of the DQ brand, recently announced its new DQ Grill & Chill restaurant opening in Bradfordville Corners north of Tallahassee. Situated at 3687 Bradfordville Rd., the restaurant is locally owned and operated by multi-unit owner Bhadresh Patel.

The DQ Grill & Chill flagship concept modernizes guests’ dining experience by offering soft-serve favorites such as cones, sundaes and the signature Blizzard treat. DQ fans can also order lunch and dinner options including GrillBurgers, Chicken Strip Baskets, and hot sandwiches.

Each DQ Grill & Chill location features a modern, open-air grill, separate “Grill” and “Chill” sections, booths, wooden tables, lighting, and music.

“Not long after opening our first Tallahassee restaurant, we witnessed firsthand how much joy the Dairy Queen brand brought to our community. Opening a second location was an easy decision,” says Patel. “We can’t wait for our new DQ Grill & Chill to reach more families and become the go-to spot for friends to enjoy great food and classic frozen treats.”

Prior to his journey with the DQ brand, Patel earned ownership expertise by operating several high profile gas and convenience stores in the region.

“The leadership team continues to offer unbeatable support,” added Patel. “From build-out and beyond opening day, the resources and training have simplified the process, making a tremendous impact on my team’s success.”

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. International Dairy Queen Inc., based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, is the parent company of American Dairy Queen Corporation and Dairy Queen Canada, Inc.
