Minneapolis--Dairy Queen franchisees who cannot afford to renovate their stores into its parent company's new DQ Grill & Chill concept are now able to test some or all of the new items offered by the new quick-casual restaurant chain. The move came after franchisees expressed concerns that the new concept might hurt business at existing "ma-and-pa" stores. The test enhancement provides existing restaurants with an opportunity to benefit from Dairy Queen's inventiveness and to make money year-round rather than just seasonally. -Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal
