TELL CITY – The DQ Grill & Chill restaurant in Tell City recently earned a Personal Responsibility in Delivering Excellence Award from the Dairy Queen system for achieving a high level of cleanliness and food safety.
“I feel honored to have received such a prestigious award,” Linda Mattingly, store manager, said. “My staff and I work hard to keep our restaurant at a high level of cleanliness to ensure that we provide a safe and enjoyable environment for our customers.”
The award is given out to those stores that demonstrate pride by maintaining a high level of cleanliness and food safety. This is the fifth year for the award, and last year approximately 18 percent of restaurants in the Dairy Queen-Orange Julius system qualified for the award. The award is delivered at the time of a Pride assessment, which can occur anytime throughout the year.
Mattingly received her recognition for her hard work in the form of a framed certificate with a picture of the crew working at the time of the assessment. The certificate states her location achieved an “outstanding cleanliness and food safety pride check” by setting up for success, giving customers a reason to return and maintaining pride.
