“DQ restaurants in Texas have been part of the fabric of the Lone Star State’s communities for 75 amazing years,” says Lou Romanus, CEO of the Texas Dairy Queen Operator’s Council. “Almost everyone I meet tells me about a particular memory they experienced at their favorite DQ restaurant in Texas. The anniversary of the DQ brand in Texas is a wonderful opportunity to share these stories with fans across Texas.”

Whether you frequented the DQ at Lakeridge, later converted to a Chase bank branch, or grew up in a small town and considered their Hungr-Busters to be haute cuisine – DQ wants to hear from you. The operator’s council, made up of franchisees from around the state, says they want to hear about every Chocolate Dipped Cone that soothed a broken heart, every Blizzard that celebrated a big win on the field and every Peanut Buster Parfait first date that led to a lengthy marriage.

New memories can be made at the Lake Highlands DQ, 6455 Eastridge near Home Depot.
