The first Dairy Queen restaurant opened in 1940 in Joliet, Illinois. As of 2014 there are over 6400 DQ locations worldwide. There are several brands operating under the DQ logo, including Orange Julius (mainly in malls), DQ Brazier (full fast food menu) DQ Grill & Chill (a new approach to fast food, introduced in 2001) and Texas Country Foods - a Texas specific kind of DQ restaurants that offers a different hot food menu.
Despite most of the DQ locations offering hot foods such as hamburgers, not surprisingly what they are known best for are dairy products - milkshakes, malts, banana splits, slushies and so on.
The DQ slogan changed several times over the many decades the franchise has been around. Initially it was "We treat you right." It was replaced by "Hot Eats, Cool Treats" in mid 1990s and it stayed that way until 2011 when it got changed once again, this time to "So Good It's RiDQulous". The latest slogan reads "Fan Food, not Fast Food".
