Dairy Queen, the quarter-century-old fast food restaurant known mostly for its desserts, plans to expand in South Carolina in a big way, including metropolitan Columbia. The Minnesota-based business has begun recruiting franchisors to open 75 stand-alone restaurants in the Palmetto State in coming years – up to 15 of those in the Columbia area, company executives said Monday. The first of the new Columbia restaurants could open late this year or in early 2017, according to Jim Kerr, vice president of franchise development for International Dairy Queen Inc.
