Multi-Unit Owner Brings World-Leading QSR Concept To Northern Leon County
June 05, 2019 // Franchising.com // TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Bradfordville Corners just got a whole lot sweeter.
American Dairy Queen Corporation (ADQ), franchisor of the timeless DQ® brand cherished for its classic frozen treats and delectable fare, recently announced its new DQ Grill & Chill® restaurant opening in Bradfordville Corners north of Tallahassee. Conveniently situated at 3687 Bradfordville Rd., the restaurant is locally owned and operated by multi-unit owner Bhadresh Patel.
Striking the perfect balance between yesterday and today, 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 enjoy made-to-order lunch and dinner options including GrillBurgers™, Chicken Strip Baskets and delicious hot sandwiches.
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.
“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,” said 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.”
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.
