Seasoned Restaurateur Announces New Site for Hammond
Hammond, IN (RestaurantNews.com) Hammond is in for a treat.
American Dairy Queen Corporation (ADQ), the legacy brand beloved for its mouthwatering meals and tasty treats, recently announced plans to bring a DQ Grill & Chill® restaurant to Hammond. Conveniently situated at 954 Indianapolis Blvd, the restaurant is locally owned and operated by Danny Patel.
The forthcoming DQ Grill & Chill® location features a modern look and feel, comfortable booths, large wooden tables, warm lighting and upbeat music. The location is owned and operated by Danny Patel, a longtime operator with Dunkin’ Donuts and now a multi-unit owner with Dairy Queen®.
“Dairy Queen® has always been a family favorite of ours,” said Patel. “Not only do we enjoy the tasty treats, but also the brand and what it stands for. The brand evokes a sense of community and I know the people of Hammond will be drawn to it. I’m excited to get involved with Dairy Queen® and continue the tradition of serving great food and classic frozen treats to DQ® fans for years to come.”
Prior to Dairy Queen®, Patel operated multiple Dunkin’ franchise locations. Dairy Queen® Hammond will be Patel’s second DQ® location and a third is currently in the works. As an experienced franchise partner, Patel ensures top brand management and operations at every location he owns. He enjoys getting to know his team and the community to create the best possible restaurant experience.

Beyond soft-serve favorites such as the legendary variety of Blizzard treats, at DQ Grill & Chill® restaurants, DQ® fans can also enjoy made-to-order lunch and dinner options including GrillBurgers, Chicken Strip Baskets and delicious hot sandwiches, salads, Fries, Onion Rings and Cheese Curds!
