From its humble beginnings in Kankakee, Illinois, in 1938, Dairy Queen has grown from a delicious experiment in soft-serve ice cream to a household name with more than 5,900 restaurants around the world. Marshalltown saw its first Dairy Queen open in 1947, one of the first 100 shops to open in the U.S. Owned and operated by the Wollam family, this founding ice-cream shop still resides in the same building employees started selling sweet treats from 68 years ago.
The shop's signature frozen delights are built upon frosty foundations of creamy chocolate or vanilla soft serve, which swirl idyllically into cones, cups, sundaes, Peanut Buster parfaits, and the chain's iconic Blizzard treats, blended with crumbled candy and other mix-ins. They also have a variety of hot food items, including burgers, hot dogs, chicken wraps, and onion rings.
Fruit rules the roost on the other side of the shop where Orange Julius blends its signature frothy drinks crafted from fruit juice, ice, and a "magic” powdered sweetener that makes it disappear from most customers’ cups minutes after their first sip. Real fruit purée forms the basis for their smoothies, which also come in diet-friendly light versions that boast one-third fewer calories than regular ones.
