Columbia will now have tasty new treat and food offerings with the opening of a DQ Grill & Chill® restaurant, owned and operated by Fourteen Foods. American Dairy Queen Corporation’s (ADQ) timeless DQ® brand, cherished for its delectable fare and classic frozen treats, will serve the city of Columbia and surrounding communities starting at 6:00 a.m. on Tuesday, November 10th.

Located at 101 Jamestown Road, the restaurant features a modern, open-air grill and separate “Grill” and “Chill” sections, perfect for hosting local gatherings and milestones. Drive-thru, patio, and dining areas will serve fans from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily while following the state’s social distancing guidelines. Coming soon after opening, this location will offer delivery via DoorDash and mobile ordering, deals and rewards through the Dairy Queen® Mobile App.

Striking the perfect balance between yesterday and today, the DQ Grill & Chill® flagship concept modernizes guests’ dining experience by offering made-to-order breakfast, lunch, and dinner options, including GrillBurgers™, Chicken Strip Baskets, and delicious hot sandwiches. DQ® fans can also enjoy soft-serve and novelty favorites such as cones, sundaes, cakes, freezer treats, and the signature Blizzard® Treat.

From breakfast with friends to an evening smile break with family, we look forward to being part of this community,” noted Frauenshuh.
