Friday, 17 March 2023 08:00 PM

Fourteen Foods, led by CEO Matt Frauenshuh, acquired its 243rd Dairy Queen store, located in Waupaca, Wisconsin.

WAUPACA, WI / ACCESSWIRE / March 17, 2023 / Fourteen Foods CEO Matt Frauenshuh is proud to announce the acquisition of a Dairy Queen store located in Waupaca, Wisconsin - the company's 243rd store to date. As the largest DQ Grill & Chill® franchisee in the United States, Fourteen Foods is eager to uphold the family-owned values of this community staple and continue supporting local initiatives and activities.

Former owner, Paul Mayou, opened the Waupaca Dairy Queen on March 1, 1992, and his efforts came full circle as he was recognized 31 years later with a plaque acknowledging his community contributions and service to the store. Matt Frauenshuh led the ceremonies and, with the help of his 6-year-old son, Maxwell, presented the plaque to officially mark the transition of ownership and Fourteen Foods' commitment to maintaining the store's presence in the community.

"We are a large business with a family-owned approach and a heart that makes our stores more than just another acquisition," says Mr. Frauenshuh. "The city of Waupaca can look forward to the same continued tradition and smile-led service that made Paul's store such a beloved part of the community. It was an honor to acknowledge Paul's contributions and mark this change of the guard. We are so excited to continue to make memories and partner in the Waupaca community."

Fourteen Foods intends to continue with the same quality food offerings and customer service while extending the store's hours. From community partnerships to fundraisers, the organization will continue to give back and be involved in the city of Waupaca. Established in 2002, Fourteen Foods owns and operates over 240 DQ Grill & Chill® braziers and restaurants in 13 states.
