The award is delivered shortly after the time of the PRIDE assessment visit, which can occur any time throughout the year, according to a news release from American Dairy Queen Corp.

The Seymour location received recognition for its hard work in the form of a framed certificate with a picture of the crew working at the time of the assessment.
