DQ Grill & Chill® Opens in Dundee, Michigan
Seasoned Business Owner to Open First Location; Bringing Sweet Treats to Monroe County
March 16, 2021 // Franchising.com // DUNDEE, Mich. - DQ® fans, rejoice! The community of Dundee is getting a whole lot sweeter.
American Dairy Queen Corporation (ADQ), franchisor of the timeless DQ® brand cherished for its classic delectable fare and frozen treats, recently announced its new DQ Grill & Chill® restaurant opening in Dundee. Conveniently situated at 602 Tecumseh St., the restaurant is locally owned by new DQ® operator Ali Salameh.
While following local county guidelines and safety protocols, the restaurant will officially open Monday, March 22 and will serve fans daily through its drive-thru.
“I was inspired to look into Dairy Queen after my daughter worked at a location near us and loved it. I’ve primarily owned businesses in the gasoline industry and was ready to add a new concept to my portfolio. DQ® seemed like the perfect fit,” said Ali Salameh. “My family and I are looking forward to bringing the first DQ® location to the community and providing classic meals to the brand’s fans in the area. We hope to spread joy and smiles to those across the area who feel a strong connection to the restaurant. March 22 cannot come soon enough for us to start serving our neighbors here in Dundee.”
Ali brings more than 40 years of business experience in the gasoline industry to the table. Managing the restaurant will be a team effort as Ali’s family, including his wife and children, and his long-time employees will help keep the restaurant’s daily operations moving along. The team looks forward to bringing the first ever DQ Grill & Chill® restaurant to the Dundee area, filling a gap in the town’s restaurant row.
A welcoming environment for all, each DQ Grill & Chill® location features comfortable booths, large wooden tables, warm lighting and upbeat music. Striking the perfect balance between yesterday and today, the 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.
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 80 years, ADQ now has more than 7,000 locations worldwide.
