Dairy Queen Restaurants for Sale

BizQuest serves up the best Dairy Queens for sale!

The first soft serve ice cream recipe was developed in 1938. When it made its debut in an Illinois-based ice cream shop, the new desert sold 1,600 servings within two hours. The popularity and demand for the favorite treat grew over the next two years, and the first Dairy Queen restaurant opened in 1940. The company's popularity and success skyrocketed from there because DQ focused on one thing and did it better than anyone else. It made soft-serve ice cream.

DQ earned a strong following by providing consistently good food and keeping up with customer demand. As times changed, so did the menu. Now, many Dairy Queen restaurants serve hot dogs, sandwiches, chicken, hamburgers, a variety of sides, deserts and, of course, soft serve ice cream. The company now has one of the more recognizable brands in the world, which is why thousands every day search for a Dairy Queen franchise that's for sale.

Dairy Queen consistently receives top business awards including, most recently, 2nd place in America's Top Fast Food Chains, and CNN Money's Top Ten Franchise Bets. With over 6,000 current franchises worldwide, now is a great time to find a Dairy Queen for sale. With its large inventory, BizQuest can help you buy your own Dairy Queen business!
