November 01, 2012 // Franchising.com // CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – The Dairy Queen® system’s newest, most exciting restaurant concept has opened its doors at 6169 Saratoga Blvd. The new 2,725 square-foot DQ Grill & Chill® restaurant has added 45 new jobs, contributing to Corpus Christi’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 4.1 percent this year.

“We are excited to open the Corpus Christi DQ Grill & Chill restaurant and welcome the community in to enjoy our full menu of cravable food items, cool treats and Orange Julius® specialty fruit smoothies and drinks,” said restaurant operator Robert Lozano. “This new restaurant is sure to become a location where families and friends can gather to share smiles and stories over a great meal and treats.”

An Array of Menu Options

The DQ® Restaurant concept blends the best of DQ iconic history with the most modern innovations in the quick-service restaurant (QSR) industry. The Texas Country Foods® menu features the quarter- and half-pound Hungr-Buster® made to order with premium flavor options, as well as other delicious and unique food items, including Texas T-Brand Tacos. Grilled and Crispy Chick'n Sandwiches, Steak Sandwiches and the Chick’n Strip or Steak Finger Country Basket® also are available for either lunch or dinner. The new restaurant also will feature all of the DQ treat favorites, such as the iconic Blizzard® Treats, MooLatté® frozen coffee-flavored beverages, Blizzard Cakes and a wide variety of other soft-serve items.

Complementing the “Grill” is the “Chill,” with the traditional and indulgent Dairy Queen soft-serve treats everybody knows and loves. Along with all of the DQ favorites, such as the signature Blizzard Flavor Treats, MooLatté frozen blended coffee beverages, DQ Cakes and waffle bowl sundaes and cones, guests will enjoy delicious Orange Julius Premium Fruit smoothies and fruit-blended beverages on the menu. Orange Julius Premium Fruit Smoothies are made with real fruit and low-fat yogurt, and are blended fresh for customers upon ordering. The refreshing, frothy real-fruit Julius Originals are also blended fresh. Flavors for both Julius Originals and Premium Fruit Smoothies include Orange, Strawberry, Strawberry Banana, Tripleberry® and Mango Pineapple.

Design and Décor

The DQ Grill & Chill restaurant interior brings an innovative dimension to quick-service restaurant (QSR) dining. Highlighted by the modern open-air grill and separate “Grill” and “Chill” sections, the restaurant features comfortable booths and large wooden tables, warm lighting, music and an overall inviting environment.
