DQ Grill & Chill® Restaurant Opens in Donalsonville
Local Entrepreneur Brings World-Leading QSR Concept To Seminole County
December 31, 2019 // Franchising.com // DONALSONVILLE, Ga. – Donalsonville just doubled in sweetness.
American Dairy Queen Corporation (ADQ), franchisor of the timeless DQ® brand cherished for its delectable fare and classic frozen treats, recently announced its new DQ Grill & Chill® restaurant opening in Donalsonville. Conveniently situated at 301 West 3rd Street, the restaurant is locally owned and operated by Nick and Sohel Momin.
Striking the perfect balance between yesterday and today, the DQ Grill & Chill® flagship concept modernizes guests’ dining experience by offering made-to-order lunch and dinner options including GrillBurgers™, Chicken Strip Baskets and delicious hot sandwiches. DQ® fans can also enjoy soft-serve favorites such as cones, sundaes and the signature Blizzard® Treat.
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.
“Ironically enough, our DQ® journey started when we were teenagers,” said Nick. “Sohel & I grew up working in small town Dairy Queen® restaurants, and we quickly learned that having a strong work ethic, honesty and community relationships with would drive successful operations. Years later, and we’re still as passionate about the brand now than when we were kids. We’re thrilled to have an opportunity to grow our own business, and hopefully have the same ripple effect on Donalsonville.”
As a pair, the Momins have a combined 30 years of ownership and management experience with brand. Outside of the Donalsonville, they have built a fan-base at their other location in Blakely.
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, the Dairy Queen® system 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.
