Dairy Queen is a chain of soft-serve ice cream and fast-food restaurants owned by International Dairy Queen, Inc., a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway. It was founded in 1940 in Joliet, Illinois, and has since grown to become one of the largest ice cream chains in the world, with locations in many countries including the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
Dairy Queen is known for its soft serve ice cream, which is available in a variety of flavors and can be enjoyed on its own or as part of one of the chain’s many treats such as the Blizzard, which is a thick and creamy shake made with your choice of mix-ins. Dairy Queen also serves a range of other fast food items including burgers, hot dogs, and chicken strips.
Dairy Queen, like many fast food restaurants, operates on a set schedule. Most locations are open between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m., while some locations in major cities may stay open until 11 p.m. However, it is rare to find a Dairy Queen that is open 24 hours a day. To enjoy Dairy Queen’s offerings, be sure to visit during their operating hours.
Despite the limited hours of operation, the ice cream and shakes offered by Dairy Queen are well worth a visit. To ensure that the location you plan to visit is open, you can use Dairy Queen’s store locator. This tool can help you find the nearest location and confirm its operating hours.
