Dairy Queen’s new free cheeses are being ditched and sizes will be capped at 25-inch or 40-inch size, but will still be available at the chain’s main locations.
The chain has also removed its 30-inch and 40-inches sizes from its menu and now only offers a 20-inch, 25-ounce size for those with larger hands.
“We’re making it really simple for our customers to get the cheesecake they’ve always wanted,” Dairy Queen spokesman Brian Cavanaugh said.
“If you like dairy, this is a great place to try something new.
You won’t find anything more satisfying than that.”
The change comes as the company is preparing for a nationwide expansion of its Dairy Queen Express franchise, which will expand to all Australian stores by the end of 2018.
“As the number of people moving from regular cheese curds to the Express program continues to grow, Dairy Queen is making a concerted effort to provide our customers with better choices for cheese,” Dairy King spokesman Mark Brown said.
The company will also begin to reduce prices on its other brands including Dairy Queen Classic, Dairy King Original, Dairy Kings, Dairy Princess, Dairy Macaroni, and Dairy Queen Chocolate.
Dairy Queen will continue to offer its original and premium cheeses and premium ice cream.
Dish Network will continue providing its channels on-demand video services and on-line retail stores, and will continue its partnership with online retailer Amazon Prime.
Dietary supplements and dairy products are also being offered at participating stores.
Dining and entertainment outlets will continue offering free WiFi in select locations.
Cavanaugh said customers can expect to see Dairy Queen specials at its main stores beginning at 8am and ending at 5pm on Monday.
“Dairy Queens will be available all day, every day,” he said.
