The long awaited Ellsworth Dairy Queen Grill and Chill held their ribbon cutting on Friday, January 4th. The restaurant has been open since December 31st.

The Ellsworth Dairy Queen is open daily 11AM to 8PM with the drive thru open until 9PM. Chris Thorne is the franchise owner, and he also owns the Dairy Queens in Brewer and in Waterville.

Although I wasn't able to be at the ribbon cutting, I did stop in Friday afternoon and the restaurant and drive thru lanes were packed!
