“This is a game changer for our system. The DQ®system has introduced ovens into our locations — DQ Bakes! ovens. DQ Bakes! are hot, delicious, made-to-order sandwiches, snacks and desserts, available any time of day. DQ Bakes! reflect the high quality and value our Fans have come to expect from us,” said Barry Westrum, Executive Vice President of Marketing for Dairy Queen.
“The artisan-style sandwiches, snack melts and hot desserts give us a tremendous competitive advantage. We are turning the quick-service restaurant industry upside down with the addition of new and different food and treat menu items that will redefine the category. We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our actual 75th anniversary with our Fans, as well as set us up for the next 75 years.”

About Dairy Queen (from Wikipedia)
Dairy Queen, often abbreviated DQ, is a chain of soft serve and fast food restaurants owned by International Dairy Queen, Inc, which also owns Orange Julius and Karmelkorn. The name “Dairy Queen” is taken from the name of their soft serve product, which the company refers to as “Dairy Queen” or “DQ”. The first Dairy Queen store opened in 1940 in Joliet, Illinois. The company’s corporate offices are located in Edina, Minnesota. In 2008 Dairy Queen had 5,700 locations.
A popular Dairy Queen item is the Blizzard, which is soft-serve mechanically blended with mix-in ingredients such as sundae toppings and/or pieces of cookies, brownies, or candy. It has been a staple on the menu since its introduction in 1985, a year in which Dairy Queen sold 100 million Blizzards. Popular Blizzard flavors include: Oreo Cookies, mint Oreo, chocolate chip cookie dough, M&M’s (Smarties in Canada),Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, Heath bar, and Butterfinger.
