    Our DQ in my town closed down about 6 months ago

    What’s weird... is that it was always packed

    DQ’s aren’t that popular here and I love them! There’s only one in my city and it’s ALWAYS PACKED. Also why do they insist on flipping the blizzards upside down every time like I’m a 4 year old kid? What happens if they don’t turn them upside down?

    Generally the stores in the northeast are the busiest in the country. I think 10 or 12 of the top 20 stores are in new england. We love our ice cream

    Total of I believe around 5800 stores

    Here's me and my dad about 4 years ago when we remodeled our main store.

    At our 2 mall stores we don't do the flip or free promotion. But, at our main store we do participate.

    The kids love it. It's that simple.

    Technically if we don't flip, the customer gets a free blizzard their next visit. It's a pain to do. But our staff is pretty good with it 081228f68c2440ce8c7d50396454ae7e.jpg

    So there's no origin story for the flip? Like, the first person to flip the blizzard did so simply because "the kids will love this"? That doesn't make any sense

    I can press my corporate contact to see if he has the answer...


    The secondary purpose is to show the quality and thickness of our product

    This was what I was getting at. Thanks. I figured it had to do with showing that the blizzard wasn't all air (I imagine it would just fall out if there were pockets of air in the cup). This is probably the primary purpose, the kids loving it is the secondary one
