This means that decisions to participate may be left to the Franchise operator. Therefore, the Franchise operator has the right to decide if he wants to participate in the ongoing promotion or not.
This is also the reason why some Dairy Queen restaurants close to you might not be offering promotional discounts or special programs. You should check the Dairy Queen® website to see if your preferred store is offering ongoing promotions.
