Mayfield Dairy Queen
Making Happy Memories

in the CLEANEST PLACE IN TOWN….EVERY SINGLE TIME!
We are DQ’s of Austin, Round Rock, Georgetown, Lockhart, Cameron, and Cedar Park
Mayfield Dairy Queens is a third generation family DQ operation (soon to be fourth generation, in all likelihood). My Dad, Tolbert Mayfield was one of the first DQ franchisees in Texas and opened his first store in Cleburne, Texas on April 2, 1949. (He didn’t want to open April 1 because of April Fool’s Day).
Learn About The Owner
I grew up in the Dairy Queen business there in Cleburne and you can see pictures of our heritage in our Mayfield stores, with pictures of the original store and the way things were in the late 40’s and early 50’s in Texas Dairy Queens.
I went to the University of Texas School of Law and had a successful practice in Hereford, TX when I took over my Dad’s business in Austin in 1979. I still occasionally practice law. My sons Linton and Nathaniel have followed me into the business (Nathaniel is also a professional trumpet player and started an oil & gas company). My wife, Marion, is from Nova Scotia, Canada, Linton’s wife Tatyana is from Ukraine, and Nathaniel’s wife Ulrike is from Germany. We like to think of ourselves an international, cosmopolitan family. Speaking of family, we think of our employees as our “work family”. Many of them have been with us for a long time and we are very proud of that.
It has been a real pleasure to see so many of my work family learn and grow, often into management with our company. I love seeing their families at our annual Christmas party. We enjoy our work, and we at Mayfield Dairy Queens want to do our very best to see that you have both fun and a good experience when visiting one our stores.
We try to live by our mission statement “Making Your Day with Fun, Quality, and Caring…Every Single Time!” And not just your day, the customer. We also make the day of our fellow Team Members, our “internal customers”. We are a little different from many other companies in our industry. We pay at a higher starting rate of $12 per hour. We are a good place to work at, and it shows in the store when you come in or go through the drive-up window. We honor each work anniversary with a gift card. We honor each Team member with a cake on his or her birthday. We give recognition bonuses for a job well done. We give you business cards to pass out to your friends. We have high standards and you will find that our Team does, too.
When I go to Team meetings, I find that almost everyone there has done such a good job with customers that they even get money tips! How often do you see that in a fast food restaurant? Although this is my company, I couldn’t have done it alone. Special thanks to my Vice-President of Operations, Ernest Paredez, for the excellent food quality, hospitality and clean restaurants you will experience.
We now have two managers we have recently promoted to Area Managers, Ken Davis and Keith Boyd. I hope you can meet them as you come to my stores. I love meeting and talking with my customers and my Internal customer, my work family. If you watch our Facebook pages you will see occasions where you can come to lunch with the owner, where I get to meet some of my loyal customers and give away some food or treats. You will also see on Facebook and in the stores that we support numerous sports teams, and raise money for the Dell Children’s Hospital here in Austin.

The Mayfield DQ Promise
The best Bacon Cheeseburger in town. We fry our thick sliced Applewood bacon daily and boy is it good.
We are a good place to work at. We love our Team members who are like a work family to us. You can tell when you come to the store that the Team loves both what they do, as well as our company. This didn’t happen by accident….we have worked very hard to get to this level.
Social media opportunities. We have an active social media presence on Facebook and other places. We welcome the opportunity to post your pictures and videos about us or the store. We have fun interacting with our customers. Sometimes we post coupons or other discount opportunities, so we encourage you to “Like” us so you can participate in these when they happen.
We pride ourselves on making a juicy burger, which we describe as a 5 napkin burger because you will need napkins.
Extra-large brightly colored straws that allow you to get a better taste of our shakes and smoothies and to suck whole strawberries and other ingredients right through the straw, unlike our competitors. We find kids like to collect the different straw colors to use later.
Blizzards….what can I say? I never met one I didn’t like. Gold standard of the industry. No one else comes close.
Some darn good food, all of it, really.
Best soft serve in the industry. Our product is only 5% butterfat, half or less of some of the high fat ice creams you buy in the stores and in other concepts. We put a lot of care into our soft serve, constantly checking to see that just the right amount of air is there. You will love the taste this care allows us to give you.
Caring and respect for our customers. If we drop the ball (and we do, sometimes, regretfully) we try to make it right for you. We can usually make you happy right there in the store. But we have the company phone number and e-mail posted on the drive up window and also on the front door so you can call or e-mail me, the owner if you want to or need to. The number is 512 331-5122. We return every call. I may be the one calling you. I have returned most calls myself for over 20 years.
Hand breaded fresh chicken tenders, which we use on our famous chicken baskets and also on our crispy chicken salads.
Some real Mayfield DQ hospitality. We want your visit to be fun as well as filling with good food. From the moment you see our “Bad Attitudes Here” sign just outside the front door, you know you are going to have a good time. Many customers take pictures of their kids or themselves next to this sign, all in good fun. Many of our Team get money tips from customers. We try to make your day!
Clean rest rooms, clean dining room, clean parking lot, clean work area, clean Team members. We know what you want because we would want the same thing if we were the customer instead of you!
