A Story of Sweet Success

For more than 70 years, the DQ® system's recipe for success has been simple. It's been a combination of hardworking people who own and operate restaurants, and great-tasting food and tempting treats served in our establishments.

Our phenomenal story began with the 10-cent sale of a then unnamed product on August 4, 1938, in Kankakee, Illinois. A father and son partnership in Green River, Illinois, had been experimenting with a soft frozen dairy product for some time. They contacted Sherb Noble, a good friend and customer, who agreed to run the "all you can eat" trial sale at his walk-in ice cream store. Within two hours, he dished out more than 1,600 servings of the new dessert.

Your local Dairy Queen restaurant in The Woodlands, TX is family owned and operated.  The store opened on New Years eve 2011.  This 3,000 sq/ft concept houses all of DQ's fabulous Texas Grill and Chill products PLUS Orange Julius/Smoothies, Blizzards and Cakes! 

Come in or drive thru and try our famous hand spun beverages; like our Arctic Rush, Smoothies, Orange Julius and famous Shakes and Malts.  But, don't also forget to satisfy your hunger with our large variety of Burgers, Steak Fingers and Chick'n Strip baskets, Taco Salads and Nachos.
