Dairy Queen Plans Major Northern California Expansion

(BRK.A), (BRK.B)

It seems just about every week now Dairy Queen announces a major expansion. Recently it announced that it would be opening hundreds of new locations in Massachusetts and South Carolina.

Now, the frozen treat and “fan food” purveyor is planning to triple its northern California locations, adding another 200 locations to its existing 98 locations.

Dairy Queen hasn’t been a common sight in the Bay area, with only 12 locations currently open.

In all, Dairy Queen, which has moved from a summer treats business to a year-round food and ice cream business model, plans to add 400 locations in California.

New locations will begin opening in 2017.
