WORCESTER – The Dairy Queen on Grafton St. in Worcester is expected to open just in time for summer vacation.
According to sources familiar with the ongoing build out of the restaurant, the building itself will be completed at the end of May, but the installation of the restaurant’s utilities will delay the opening until sometime in the middle of June.
No specific opening date has been officially announced. Last fall, however, it was reported that the restaurant would be open Feb. 2018 “the latest.” The reason for the opening being delayed for several months is unknown.

The restaurant will also have a 20-seat outdoor patio. There will be parking for nearly 50 cars. Additional parking will available in the plaza area shared with Advanced Auto Parts and Family Dollar.
