Worcester, Massachusetts, the second largest city in the state, will get its first Dairy Queen sometime this winter.
The Dairy Queen Grill and Chill will be a 2,800-square-foot, restaurant with 70 or more seats, and offer an outdoor patio and a drive-through. The cost of construction is approximately $1.3 million.
Franchisee Thebe Enterprises LLC of Northboro, Massachusetts, has signed a 20-year lease for the site.
In 2016, Dairy Queen announced plans to rollout 60 new stores with potential locations including the towns of Taughton, Peabody, Burlington, Plymouth, and Worcester.
One thing is for sure, Massachusetts does love ice cream. The Bay State ranks in the top ten of most ice cream consuming states.
