Dairy Queen
For more than 70 years, the DQ® system's recipe for success has been simple. It's been a combination of hardworking people who own and operate restaurants, and great-tasting food and tempting treats served in our establishments.Our phenomenal story began with the 10-cent sale of a then unnamed product on August 4, 1938, in Kankakee, Illinois. A father and son partnership in Green River, Illinois, had been experimenting with a soft frozen dairy product for some time. They contacted Sherb Noble, a good friend and customer, who agreed to run the "all you can eat" trial sale at his walk-in ice cream store. Within two hours, he dished out more than 1,600 servings of the new dessert.Back then, food franchising was all but unheard of, but the new product's potential made it a natural for such a system. When the United States entered World War II in December 1941, there were fewer than 10 Dairy Queen® stores. However, shortly after the war, the system took off at a pace virtually unrivaled before or since. With only 100 stores in 1947, it grew to 1,446 in 1950 and then to 2,600 in 1955. Today, the DQ® system is one of the largest fast food systems in the world, with more than 6,000 restaurants in the United States, Canada and 18 other countries.Although much has changed in the world and in the DQ® system through the years, one constant has remained: DQ® restaurants are still, and always have been, the place to find kids' sports teams celebrating a victory, business people on their lunch break and families taking time out to enjoy great food and soft serve treats. And success for the DQ® system is as simple today as it was in 1940. Satisfied customers lead to successful restaurants. Each owner of our independently owned and operated establishments worldwide is committed to nothing less than the "So Good It's RiDQulous®" slogan.

Nicholas Black River Vineyards & Winery
On the tip of beautiful Northern Michigan, two sisters from Ikaria are producing local wines in the style of their Greek homeland and keeping their Uncle's dream alive. Nicholas J. Koklanaris came to the USA in 1951 at age 17. In 1992 he planted his first vines in the Black River Valley of Cheboygan, planning to make wine as a hobby. In 1999 the hobby became a business. In May 2004, he added a wine tasting room in Mackinaw City. Unfortunately, in May 2005 he passed away; but his nieces are continuing in his footsteps with the business today. Our wines are unique and pure, with a deep rich flavor and aroma unlike any wine produces. Nicholas' Black Rivery Winery & Vineyard has 16 wines in their collection. Some of which are award-winning. We have a variety of wines to satisfy all customer's tastes; from red, white rose`, fruit and dessert. In 2009 National Geographic reported our island Ikaria as one of the "Blue Zones", where people forget to die. One of the secrets of longevity is the homemade wine produced in Ikaria. We produce our wines in the Greek Ikarian style by adding spices and herbs to our wines that grow only in our homeland. So stop in to our Tasting Room or Winery for a free sample of wine! Hours: Mon-Sat: 10am - 6pm; Sun: 12pm - 6pm. You can also visit our wine shop in the Mackinaw Crossings across from the Laser Show/Concert Stage located at 156 S. Huron St, Mackinaw City, 49701.
