The architect for Dairy Queen stated the design of Gardner’s new DQ Grill & Chill restaurant will include 72 seats inside and 20 seats on the outdoor patio. A corporate representative told city officials the site of the restaurant at 518 W. Main Street was specifically chosen because of its location within the city near schools, work places and residential housing, as opposed to a site along the interstate highway. Dairy Queen expects its franchisees to maintain involvement within the communities where they are located. Photo courtesy of Jerry Kellogg
