American Dairy Queen Corporation recently announced plans to bring a DQ Grill & Chill restaurant to Hammond, Indiana. Conveniently situated at 954 Indianapolis Blvd, the restaurant is locally owned and operated by Danny Patel.
The forthcoming DQ Grill & Chill location features a modern look and feel, comfortable booths, large wooden tables, warm lighting and upbeat music. The location is owned and operated by Danny Patel, a longtime operator with Dunkin’ Donuts and now a multi-unit owner with Dairy Queen.
“Dairy Queen has always been a family favorite of ours,” says Patel. “Not only do we enjoy the tasty treats, but also the brand and what it stands for. The brand evokes a sense of community and I know the people of Hammond will be drawn to it. I’m excited to get involved with Dairy Queen® and continue the tradition of serving great food and classic frozen treats to DQ® fans for years to come.”
Prior to Dairy Queen, Patel operated multiple Dunkin’ franchise locations. Dairy Queen Hammond will be Patel’s second DQ location and a third is currently in the works. As an experienced franchise partner, Patel ensures top brand management and operations at every location he owns. He enjoys getting to know his team and the community to create the best possible restaurant experience.
Maintaining its recipe of success for 80 years, the Dairy Queen system has more than 7,000 locations worldwide.
