JANESVILLE– The locally owned new Dairy Queen on Milton Avenue opened for business Tuesday, April 30.

Located at 1900 Milton Avenue next to the Post Office, the new restaurant will be owned by Ravi Patel alongside his wife.

As an experienced entrepreneur from the Janesville region, Ravi brings a plethora of experience into this new venture with the brand, rooted in his community-oriented mindset that’s been cultivated by years of working in the hospitality industry.

Most notably, Ravi owns an additional Dairy Queen location in the Janesville area, located on Court Street.

“It’s been amazing connecting with the Janesville community at our first location and we can’t wait to keep the same energy with our new location,” said Ravi Patel in a news release. “It’s not just about the delicious ice cream and hamburgers; it’s about building relationships and creating memorable experiences. I can’t wait to welcome everyone in and share the warmth and hospitality that the Dairy Queen brand is known for.”

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

What began as the 10-cent sale of an unknown frozen treat in 1938 quickly boomed into one of the most well-known companies of all time. Maintaining its recipe for success for more than 80 years, the Dairy Queen® system has more than 7,000 locations worldwide.

The restaurant and the drive-thru will be open from 10:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m., Monday through Sunday.
