Milton residents are in for a treat – a DQ treat.
American Dairy Queen Corporation has announced its new DQ Grill & Chill restaurant is set to open on March 29. The restaurant is located at 1167 Gateway Drive (near Milton’s newest Kwik Trip).
Locally owned and operated by Mike McKenna, a Milton resident and restauranteur, said he is eager to open his first Dairy Queen restaurant.
The Milton restaurant will open for drive-thru service 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Sunday and carry out will be available from 5 to 9 p.m. Monday through Sunday.
The new DQ location will host a door-buster deal on Saturday, April 3 – the first 100 fans to buy a cake on that day will receive free GrillBurgers, once a week, for a year.
“I have always been a fan of the DQ brand and definitely saw a need in Rock County for the happiness each restaurant brings to those that frequent the business,” said McKenna. “The legacy brand has a reputation for providing exceptional customer experiences and I plan to uphold that at my restaurant. Milton residents are truly in for a treat and I’m excited to finally service those that have patiently waited for us to open.”
The DQ Grill & Chill is designed with a modern look and feel with comfortable booths, large wooden tables, warm lighting and upbeat music. In addition to soft-serve favorites and the signature Blizzard Treat, DQ fans also can enjoy made-to-order lunch and dinner options including GrillBurgers, the Chicken Strip Basket and delicious hot sandwiches.
