The Dairy Queen on Grand Avenue has been sporting the same look since the 1970's and owner Chuck Koltes is remodeling it to reflect the current image of DQ.

The West Duluth DQ that sits in front of Denfeld High School has begun remodeling. Chuck the Owner is excited about the changes that are coming and hopes to re-open in mid June as long as there are no unforeseen circumstances.

Updates to the building include: a new roof line as well as a drive thru menu ordering system with a board and speaker instead of the current drive up window. There will also be a new pylon logo with a reader board and a new menu upfront. Chuck will even be serving new DQ Bakes treats such as Baked Apple Tarts, Fudge Cookie, and Triple Chocolate Browine.

So if you're driving past the DQ on Grand and wondering why there's a closed sign, now you know. I'm excited for the changes as I been going to this DQ since I was little. Let me know in the comments below what you think of the new updates and if your excited about the changes.

Updates are coming along quickly as in just five days, the roof is completely gone as you  can see in the picture below a man working on it. Even the front is looking different. Can't wait to see what's next!
