Here are a few of the most interesting Dairy Queen statistics and facts I was able to dig up including restaurant count, revenue totals and employee counts. As always, be sure to check back in the future as I will be updating this post as new and updated stats become available.
What is Dairy Queen?
Here at the DQ® system, we believe that HAPPY TASTES GOOD®. Our first location opened in Joliet, Illinois, 80 years ago. Since then we’ve grown to more than 7,000 DQ® locations in the U.S., Canada and 22 other countries. Our restaurants offer a variety of sweet treats and crave-worthy eats that hold a special place in the hearts and minds of fans of all ages, including our signature BLIZZARD® Treat.
