Request Information

The DQ Grill & Chill® restaurant is our flagship concept. This concept offers a total food service program, featuring the full line of our famous DQ® treat products and a full food menu. These restaurants are designed to feature food offerings while maintaining our DQ treat heritage. The interior is warm and inviting – different from, and better than the typical quick-service restaurant. Franchise opportunities are available in select markets across the United States. Location opportunities include: Conversions of existing buildings, freestanding stores, strip centers, and dual use buildings.

Our basic requirements for new franchisees include a review of your background, work experience, and financial capabilities. In general, we are looking for investors or individuals who have the following:

  • prior retail or foodservice ownership or management experience
  • a proposed management plan
  • the financial resources necessary to develop and operate the restaurant
  • a passion for building the DQ brand

This information is intended to provide you with a brief synopsis of a DQ Grill & Chill project. Opportunities for development exist that could vary from the typical project.


"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."
