About Dairy Queen

American Dairy Queen Corporation is a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway, Inc. There are over 5,900 locations worldwide. Texas boasts the most Dairy Queen restaurants with over 600 locations. The first Dairy Queen location opened in 1940 in Joliet, Illinois. Dairy Queen has been successful ever since by combining hardworking people who buy and operate franchises with great-tasting food and tempting treats. Best known for its soft-serve ice cream, the company's original product, Dairy Queen has since expanded its menu to include burgers, hot dogs, chicken sandwiches, salads and more. Although ice cream desserts and milkshakes still grace the menu, many locations now include a variety of smoothies and drinks made with fresh fruit from its sister company, Orange Julius. Along with committing to offer each customer a mouth-watering menu, each Dairy Queen franchise owner commits to nothing less than the Dairy Queen philosophy of ridiculous value and flavor.
