The History of Dairy Queen

In 1940, the first Dairy Queen store opened in Joliet, Illinois. Thirty-five (35) years later, in June of 1975, my partner and I opened our first store on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Although much has changed in the world during that time, we have continued to strive to maintain excellence in customer service and satisfaction.

Dairy Queen stores are still, and always have been the place to find Little League teams celebrating a victory, business people on their lunch break and families taking time out to enjoy great food and soft serve treats.

Our recipe for success has been simple. A combination of hard-working people who own and operate restaurants, great tasting food and tempting treats served with consistent quality. At Dairy Queen, we are committed to nothing less than the slogan “We Treat You Right.”
