DQ Opens 500th Location in China


MINNEAPOLIS — The Dairy Queen team is celebrating the opening its 500th location in China and plans to open more than 100 new restaurants in the country by the end of the year.

“With the world’s fastest-growing major economy, China continues to be a tremendous expansion market for the Dairy Queen system, and we attribute that in large part to strong alliances with our development partners here, including Shanghai Shida Catering,” said John Gainor, president and CEO of International Dairy Queen, Inc. “It is a real honour for my team and me to be here for the opening of our 500th store in China.”

The new restaurant is in the Hu Dong finance district in Shanghai and is operated by Shanghai Shida Catering Management Company, which operates 350 of the company’s China locations.

DQ opened 271 locations worldwide in 2011, 131 of them were in China.
