If you've ever eaten at a Dairy Queen in the Kentucky region, you may have noticed we're a bit different than any other DQs in the rest of the world. Here's one of the reasons why - breakfast.
In 1990 and 1991, when Druther's converted an entire chain of restaurants to Dairy Queen, we brought a few things with us. We brought along a proven network of restaurants that had a strong regional following. We brought along Sysco, our food distributor. Most importantly, we brought our breakfast program, that we'd been serving since our Burger Queen days, along with us.
Our breakfast program was so appealing and systems so tested, that many of our executives and Burger Queen/Druther's locations actually formed a division within Dairy Queen itself called Dairy Queen Corporate Stores. That division operated from the late 1990s through 2010. When the division was dissolved, several of the owner/operators wanted to stay on as Druther's partners, and keep our company and traditions alive.
At breakfast in a Druther's Dairy Queen in the Kentucky region, you'll have your eggs cooked fresh to order, and your breakfast, lunch or dinner cooked on a grill by an actual person - the way we've done things since the Burger Queen days. No microwaved, pre-packaged egg sheets unfolded onto your plate, just a hot breakfast with fresh eggs and warm biscuits and gravy made right for you and your family. The same goes for our burgers, our local owner/operators grill 'em up hot and juicy every day.
Our company vision for the future of Dairy Queen, unchanged since 1990, involves making every location we partner with, own, co-own, or are the landlord of - full-service DQ Grill & Chill Restaurants with a breakfast program. We hope this model spreads nationwide, if not worldwide.
We'll see you at DQ!
