The Dairy Queen/Brazier located at 402 E. Main St. in Barnesville 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," said owners Robyn and Jim Misner. "We work hard to keep our restaurant at a high level of clealiness to ensure that we provide a safe and enjoyable environment for our customers."

The award is given out to those stores that demostrate PRIDE by maintaining the Dairy Queen system's standard of cleanliness and food safety. This is the eighth year for the PRIDE award and every restaurant that meets these standards will receive the award. The award is delivered shortly after the time of the PRIDE assessment visit, which can occur anytime throughout the year.

The Barnesville location received recognition for their hard work in the form of a framed certificate with a picture of the crew working at the time of the assessment. The certificate states that their location achieved an Outstanding Cleanliness and Food Safety PRIDE Check by Standing up for success, giving the customer a reason to return and maintaining PRIDE.
