DQ hopes to break ground in near future

From Tiffany Collins, City of Columbia

The City of Columbia would like to give an update on the progress of the Dairy Queen location coming to our community.

"We have been notified that the design of the location will be Next Gen; and this will be the first of this particular design in the United States," said Mayor Pamela Hoots.

The Dairy Queen is planning on breaking ground within the next two months. "This is pending approval of permits and other prior documentation necessary," said Hoots.

Hoots noted that Dairy Queen is looking forward to being in Columbia.
