The Dairy Queen® located at 109 E Ocean Bay Blvd. in Kill Devil Hills recently received a PRIDE (Personal Responsibility in Delivering Excellence) Award from the Dairy Queen system for achieving a high level of cleanliness and food safety.

“We feel honored to have received such a prestigious award,” state Latoya Banks, general manager. “We work hard to keep our restaurant at a high level of cleanliness to ensure that we provide a safe and enjoyable environment for our customers. I want to take this time to thank all of my employees for their effort and hard work.”

The award is given out to those stores that demonstrate PRIDE by maintaining the Dairy Queen system’s standard of cleanliness and food safety.
