This Groupon is not valid for redemption on August 12, when Dairy Queens in Canada will celebrate Miracle Treat Day, benefitting Children's Miracle Network.
Since its founding in 1940 by an entrepreneurial father-and-son team in Joliet, Illinois, Dairy Queen franchises have serenaded the palates of generations of customers across North America with frosty confections and savoury grilled fare. The company’s dedication to celebrating life events large and small is evidenced as staffers concoct their signature cakes that sandwich chocolate and vanilla soft serve between layers of fudge and a crunchy mantle, serving hungry partygoers. While treat architects specialize in the creation of sweet indulgences such as thick Blizzards and sundaes, a host of grill masters bustles about the kitchen forging flame-licked eats including burgers, chicken strips, and hot dogs.
