Dairy Queen: I love it here at home

Dairy Queen Omaha has been a favorite for generations in Omaha, Nebraska, as well as many other cities in the Midwest.

Now, as the chain celebrates its 100th anniversary, the popular restaurants will be relocating to Omaha.

The company said the move will be announced later this month. 

“We are excited to bring our passion for fresh, healthy food to Omaha, a city of over 150,000 people, and will be opening up a second location at the new Dairy Queen, the newest addition to the Dairy Queen family,” Dairy Queen President and CEO Michael Smith said in a statement. 

The Omaha-based company has had its own city-owned location in Omaha since the 1960s.

The Omaha location will become the largest new restaurant in Omaha’s history, according to a news release from the company.

“The Dairy Queen is a brand that has captured the hearts and minds of Omaha residents, visitors, and locals, and it is an important part of the fabric of the city,” Smith said.

“We are proud to welcome this new Dairy King location to the city and to welcome our Omaha team to work here at the Dairy King.

We look forward to celebrating 100 years of great service, great food, and great friends.” 

The restaurant will feature a variety of dishes, including classic, deluxe, and premium selections.

It also will offer fresh, locally sourced produce, salads, and breakfast entrees.

The new restaurant is expected to open this fall.

The original location opened in 1957 and was sold to Dairy Queen International.

It is the second new restaurant to open in Omaha after the new location opened on Feb. 25, 2018.
