"We feel honored to have received such a prestigious award," states the Kenedy DQ crew. "We 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 once a year to those stores that demonstrate PRIDE by maintaining the Dairy Queen system's standard of cleanliness and food safety. Every restaurant that meets those standards will receive the award. This is the fifth year for the award and last year 18 percent of restaurants in the Dairy Queen/Orange Julius system received it. The award is delivered at the time of the PRIDE assessment, which can occur anytime throughout the year.
The Kenedy DQ crew received immediate recognition for their 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 that their location achieved an Outstanding Cleanliness and Food Safety PRIDE check by setting up for success, giving the customer a reason to return and maintaining PRIDE.
