Ron Kraus

DQ® Grill & Chill Franchisee, 
Fort Myers, FL

“The DQ Grill & Chill concept really fits the franchisee who wants to feel pride in what they do. A DQ Grill & Chill restaurant has the potential for every customer to  leave satisfied. There is comfort in knowing that DQ has been around so long. DQ Grill & Chill is the next generation of that same success story.”

Gregory Todd

DQ Grill & Chill® Franchisee, 
Anchorage, AK

“What attracted me to the DQ Grill & Chill® concept was the strong DQ® brand, its great heritage and my genuine love for the product. I had looked at other concepts, but the opportunity to offer a wide variety of products, from food to treats, is what made the DQ Grill & Chill® restaurant the right concept for me. What finally sold me on the concept were the employees at DQ®…they are genuine and have demonstrated, by their actions, that they will do anything to make sure I’m a success. I would recommend the DQ Grill & Chill® concept to everyone…I’m having the time of my life!”

Ron Hein

DQ Orange Julius® Franchisee,
Dover, DE

“I really enjoy being a DQ® Orange Julius® operator. A DQ® Orange Julius® store is a fun business to operate and is easy to manage compared to other quick service restaurants. The design of the store is very competitive within the mall food service environment. The representatives I work with at ADQ are very helpful, cooperative & professional. I would highly recommend this concept to anyone looking for a new business opportunity.”

Steve Cowgur

DQ® Orange Julius® Franchisee
Gilbert, AZ

“We’ve been with the Dairy Queen® system for over thirty years and have recently opened up a DQ® Orange Julius®. In the last six years, we have added four locations to our franchise portfolio. We had great help from the Operations Team... I would absolutely recommend the DQ® Orange Julius® concept to others looking to start a successful franchise business.”
