For more than 60 years, Dairy Queen's recipe for success has been simple-a combination of hard work and great-tasting treats served in our stores.
Our phenomenal story began with a 10 cent sale of a then unnamed ice cream on August 4, 1938 in Kankakee, Illinois. A father and son tean had been experimenting with a frozen dessert for sometime. With the help of a goos friend Sherb Noble, they were able to hole an "All You can Eat Sale", in Noble's walk-in store to introduce the new products. More than 1,600 servings of the new dessert within two hours, and Dairy Queen was born.
In January 1998, International Dairy Queen, Inc. and it's subsidiary companies were purchased by legendary investor Warren Buffet.
Dairy Queen introduced new products, year after year, satisfying ice cream cravings the world over. Ther's the Dilly Bar, one of the world's most favorite, Blizzard "served upside-down" appeal truly captures everyone's ice cream dreams and whims. Aside from ice cream, Dairy Queen offers a myriad of cool drinks such as premium fruit smoothies and citrus coolers. Also a favorite among coffee lovers is the Moolatte, a blend of Dairy Queen soft serve and coffee.
Today, Dairy Queen is the Worl's No. 1 Ice CReam chain with 6,000 stores. In the Philippines, Dairy Queen opened in 2006 and is owned and operated by the Araneta Group, the same franchise owners of Taco Bell.
