DQ Grill & Chill® Restaurant Joins the Waterbury Community
Seasoned Restaurateur Brings World-Leading QSR Concept to New Haven County
June 09, 2020 // Franchising.com // WATERBURY, Conn. - Waterbury just got a whole lot tastier.
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 Waterbury. Conveniently situated at 213 Chase Avenue, the restaurant is locally owned and operated by Rahman Hashimi.
The Waterbury location is set to open on Monday, June 15.
“As the owner of several Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen locations, I’m no stranger to the rush of excitement that comes with opening a new restaurant,” said Hashimi. “There has been a lot of anticipation from the community and me as well around this opening especially since this is my first DQ Grill & Chill location. We’ve been working hard training our team to make sure the drive-thru and dine-in experience is seamless for every customer.”
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.
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.
The new DQ Grill & Chill® includes about 70 staff members, ranging from crew members to managers. The lobby will be open Sunday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 12 a.m. The drive-thru will be open from Sunday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 1 a.m. and Friday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. Take-out, outdoor dining, curbside pickup and delivery will be available, and the dining area will follow social distancing guidelines as local government allows.
