Former Warren strip club is becoming a Dairy Queen Grill and Chill

Jon Jon's, a former strip club, was Warren's last adult entertainment establishment before a lengthy legal battle with the city led to its closing almost a decade ago.

Now, after sitting vacant for years (and becoming more and more dilapidated all the while) the topless bar is becoming something much more family friendly — a Dairy Queen Grill and Chill.
“This is truly a victory for Warren residents and an asset to our city. It eliminates a long-standing chronic eyesore and replaces it with a national iconic, well-known family business,” Warren Mayor Jim Fouts said in a press release last July.
The Detroit Free Press reports the fast food restaurant will open in May, after extensive renovations. Franchise owner Dawn Cordaro told the daily the cost to renovate the site has been quite large, but did not disclose a sum. Once open, the spot will operate from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m seven days a week.

The sit-down restaurant will have customers order at a counter, take a number, and find a seat where their food will be delivered to them.

The site is located at 28039 Mound Rd. in Warren.
