Dairy Queen to Have Major Expansion in Charleston, SC

(BRK.A), (BRK.B)

Charleston, South Carolina will soon be home to as many as eight Dairy Queen “grill and chill” restaurants as the quick-service chain targets the city for a major expansion.

Currently, the only Dairy Queen presence are two of its more limited “treat shops” that are located in the Northwoods Mall in North Charleston and in Summerville.

Dairy Queen franchisee Brad Walker will open between six and eight “Grill and Chill” restaurants over the next five years with the first scheduled to open January 20, 2016, in North Goose Creek Boulevard.

Next up will be a location in West Ashley at a site that is still to be determined.

Brad Walker relocated to Charleston from the Midwest in order to head up the expansion.
