Raleigh, NC – Dairy Queen® and DQ Grill & Chill® locations throughout the country will celebrate the second annual DQ® Girl Scout Appreciation Week, saluting Girl Scouts for their commitment to community service and leadership, from July 20th through the 26th.
Locally, the DQ Grill & Chill® in Morrisville will host a group of Girl Scouts from North Carolina Coastal Pines on Thursday, July 23, 2009 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. During the event, local Girl Scouts will have the opportunity to develop their business and leadership skills by taking a behind-the-scenes tour. They’ll receive entrepreneurial tips from the owner and DQ operators about how to run a successful business, and learning about the product development process. Girl Scouts will be able to use the experience and skills they’ve learned to be more successful during their annual cookie sale. The Mayor of Morrisville, Jan Faulker, and other Morrisville city council members plan to attend. From 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. 10% of proceeds earned at the DQ Grill & Chill® in Morrisville will directly benefit Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines! Come out and show your support and get a sweet treat while you’re at it!
As part of its licensing partnership with Girl Scouts of the USA, the Dairy Queen system commemorates DQ Girl Scout Appreciation Week with the debut of the Girl Scouts Tagalongs Peanut Butter Patties Blizzard Treat, the featured Blizzard Treat of the Month for July. This summer’s blockbuster is made with creamy DQ vanilla soft serve and peanut butter topping blended with Girl Scouts Tagalongs pieces of crispy cookies layered with peanut butter and covered with a chocolate coating.
Last summer, the Dairy Queen system introduced the Girl Scouts Thin Mint Cookie Blizzard Treat, which was the most popular Blizzard Flavor ever offered selling more than 10 million. Made with creamy DQ vanilla soft serve blended with Girl Scouts Thin Mint Cookie pieces and a Crème de Menthe topping, DQ will bring back this flavor as the Blizzard of the Month for August.
