Who doesn’t love Dairy Queen? The legendary chain, famous for its Blizzard (including the just-released Pumpkin Pie Blizzard), has 5,000 locations in the United States, which operate under several brands, including DQ/Orange Julius hybrids, Dairy Queen Brazier, and DQ Grill & Chill. But what, exactly, are Dairy Queen’s hours? It depends on the location.
Dairy Queen franchise owners are allowed to set their own hours, and opening and closing times can actually vary greatly. In Chicago, for example, a Dairy Queen in Park Ridge is open from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., DQ Grill & Chill on South Wabash Avenue is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., a DQ/Orange Julius on North Lincoln Avenue is open from noon to 9 p.m., and a Dairy Queen Brazier on North Southport Avenue is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
So if you want to know if a specific Dairy Queen is open, we suggest you find the location online and call ahead!
