The Dairy Queen® System is Celebrating the Unofficial End of Summer With a Free Frappe Giveaway 2-5 p.m. on Tuesday, September 6

DQ®-ristas will be serving fans

MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The first weekend in September marks the unofficial end of summer.
School is back in session and everyone is back to work the day after
Labor Day. To celebrate a new season and give fans a pick-me-up,
participating Dairy Queen® locations are giving
away one FREE small Ultimate Oreo® Frappé
per customer from 2 to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, September 6.

“This is the time of year when everyone gets a fresh start from the
classroom to the football field,” said Barry Westrum, executive vice
president of Marketing for American Dairy Queen Corporation (ADQ). “None
of us want summer to end, so at DQ® we are
easing the transition for our fans with a Free Frappé Giveaway.”

In a nod to baristas and specialty coffee servers, the DQ system
will refer to their servers as DQ-ristas, during the Free Frappé
Giveaway event.

The Ultimate Oreo Frappé is a combination of coffee, ice and Oreo
cookie pieces blended with creamy DQ signature vanilla soft
serve and crowned with whipped topping and Oreo cookie pieces
to create the perfect treat and afternoon pick-me-up. DQ Fans are
encouraged to follow the event on their social channels at #DQFreeFrappe.

The Ultimate Oreo Frappé is one of several beverages served
during the DQ system’s Hardest Working Happy Hour available
weekdays at participating U.S. locations from 2 to 5 p.m. Fans can
