Lincoln City’s Dairy Queen will be open 10:30 a.m. this Saturday according to the owner, and the frozen-treat chain store’s kitchen and dining area have been remodeled.
“We’ll be open 10:30 a.m. Saturday,” Dairy Queen owner Gordon Snyder said Thursday morning. “We haven’t had enough applications turned in so we will be having some employees from our McMinnville store help out at first.”
Snyder said he’s had the application box in front of the store, 2224 NE Hwy 101, since mid-May and needs potential employees to pick up, fill out applications and drop them off in the box to be interviewed.
The kitchen and floors have been completed and a Sysco truck was loading thousands of dollars worth of goods into the restaurant Thursday morning.
The drive thru sign was moved from the north side of the building to the east, and contractors had to acquire three permits from Lincoln County to dig a five foot by two foot hole to conform to sign regulations.
The trash has been moved from the side of the building to the northeast corner of the parking lot.
Originally scheduled to open May 1, remodel efforts have been slowed by discoveries that required extra work to ‘get the job done right.’ Syder said he was disappointed to miss crowds from the Lincoln City Kite Festival and Rip Ride Rally earlier this summer.
Lincoln City will be able to enjoy their favorite kind of Blizzard in a ‘brand new’ Dairy Queen this weekend.
