About Dairy Queen
Dairy Queen is the brain child of J.F. McCullough. He believes that ice cream tasted well if its soft served and fresh from the freezer. Frozen solid ice cream is a big turn off for McCullough that’s why he and his son Alex perfected their very own ice cream recipe. When they started selling their soft served ice cream for the first time, more than 1,600 people showed up and loved it! Because of the huge success, McCullough opened his first Dairy Queen at Joliet, Illinois in the year 1940. The Dairy Queen’s initial menu is consisted of soft served ice cream only but as time passed by, a variety of selections were added such as the Dilly Bars and banana splits. Hot food items were also sold at Dairy Queen’s in the year 1950s and up to this moment, stores system wide have menus that includes chicken, hamburgers and hotdogs through the Dairy Queen’s Grill and Chill. In 1972, DQ started to expand internationally and it reached up to 6,000 outlets worldwide. In the Philippines, Dairy Queen opened in the year 2006 and it is owned by Araneta Group of Companies who are also franchise owners of Pizza Hut and Taco Bell in the country.
