“At Dairy Queen® Panama, we have dedicated more than fifty-five years to satisfying our customers with innovative menu offerings, strategic locations with an attractive image, world-class operations and most important, keeping the necessary focus to create a differentiated service. The operations support received from IDQ makes us efficient and leaner, starting with supply-chain keeping our costs in check all the way to development keeping our image fresh. As a result, today we have over 20 successful locations. We took advantage of our economic boom and in the last year we opened 6 stores and we are planning an aggressive plan for the years to come. The partnership with IDQ has been key.”

Ali H. Al Mansoor
DQ®Bahrain, Oman & Qatar

“Ever since Dairy Queen® opened it’s doors in Bahrain in 1982, it has been a rewarding experience for every customer who has walked in as well as for the Jawad Business Group. We were the first international restaurant franchise in Bahrain, but at no time did we feel less than confident. The support that we received from ADQ has been outstanding from the very beginning, and we have moved from strength to strength. I personally have found it a pleasure to be a part of the DQ® system, and I’m proud of each of the stores in Bahrain, Qatar and Oman that we operate from today. It has been a feather in our cap to be recognized by ADQ time and again for achieving highest sales worldwide in the Dairy Queen® system.”

We have over 390 DQ® Kiosks throughout Thailand, over 100 were built in the last 3 years.

ADQ’s team works closely with us to drive the business forward by ensuring the brand stays relevant to all groups of customers."

“The DQ Grill & Chill® concept really fits the franchisee who wants to feel pride in what he does. A DQ Grill & Chill® restaurant has the potential for every customer to leave satisfied.
