WORCESTER – A more definitive date has been set for the opening of the Dairy Queen on Grafton St. in Worcester.
Announced via social media on Friday morning, Dairy Queen is “hopeful” to open on Monday, June 24 — less than one week after Worcester public schools are released for summer vacation.
As ThisWeekinWorcester.com reported last week, 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.
The “DQ Grill and Chill” restaurant will be a 72-seat, 2,800 sq foot space with a drive thru. The kitchen will feature an open-air grill, and the restaurant will have separate “Grill” and “Chill” sections, booths, large wooden tables, warm lighting and music.
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.
The menu will feature made-to-order quarter- and half-pound GrillBurgers™, Chicken Strip Baskets, DQ® Bakes!™ Hot Sandwiches and snack melts as well as DQ soft serve favorites – including signature Blizzard® Treats, MooLatté® frozen blended coffee beverages, DQ Bakes!™ Hot Desserts, DQ® Cakes and select Orange Julius®beverages.
