Jeff George, an Indianapolis native and former NFL quarterback, opened the doors to the newest Dairy Queen restaurant. George’s Westfield, Indiana, DQ Grill & Chill restaurant is located at 940 Tournament Trail.

The 5,000-square-foot DQ Grill & Chill restaurant can seat 93 guests, has two outside patios, and also offers a convenient drive-thru window. The Westfield DQ Grill & Chill restaurant has added more than 50 new jobs, contributing to Westfield’s employment growth. The new restaurant also will contribute to the state’s restaurant sales, which, according to the National Restaurant Association, are projected to increase by 3 percent this year.  

“I’m excited to open my first DQ Grill & Chill restaurant in Westfield and welcome the community in to enjoy our full menu of craveable food items, signature and innovative treats, and Orange Julius Premium Fruit Smoothies, Light Smoothies, and Julius Original drinks,” says George, who is marking his entry into the quick-service restaurant industry with the opening of this location.
