DQOC has identified a supplier for the plastic sundae cups and dishes and has recently begun the product approval process. As previously communicated, ADQ is requiring DQOC to change the resin material used in the current plastic treat dishes as well as update the DQ ellipse logo. They are also requiring the DQOC to deplete current inventory by this summer. DQOC is in the process of depleting the remaining inventory from our current supplier, Fabri-Kal. Fabri-Kal inventory of the Banana Split Dish and Parfait Dish have been depleted and there is limited supply of these two items at DQOC distributors. DQOC estimates the Small, Medium and Large Sundae Dish inventories will last into the summer. DQOC is offering 50% off on Treat Dishes at most DQOC distributors to help move through the remaining inventory.
When your DQOC distributor runs out of these items, stores will need to source them from their USCI warehouse until the new DQOC supplier obtains approval from ADQ. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this change, please contact the DQOC office.
Please be aware that there is limited supply of the Chopped Reese’s Pieces remaining at DQOC distributors.
The DQOC intends to offer Chopped Snickers again through Tarrier Foods and Glass City Foodservice for the Snickers Family national promotion this August. The Snickers Peanut Butter Pie Blizzard will also be included in the Fall/Winter Blizzard menu. Look for further announcements from the DQOC once this item gets reapproved.
ADQ has decided to make changes to the Orange Julius product offerings starting in April. They are removing the Tripleberry PFS and Orange Julius Originals at most DQ store types. With this change, DQOC distributors will no longer be offering the Tripleberry Fruit Mix and Orange Juice Concentrate going forward. Limited supply of these two products currently remain available at some DQOC distributors.
