New Dairy Queen opens to record crowds | Events
Owners of the new Dairy Queen (DQ) which recently opened on Sherwood Forest in Baton Rouge say the response has been overwhelming.
"The first week of sales broke all sales records nationally," says Mark Hebert of Kurz and Hebert Commercial Real Estate, speaking on behalf of the owners.
The restaurant which is located at 3444 South Sherwood Forest opened about two weeks ago. Since that time, there have been long lines and major traffic jams.
"The ownership had to have city policemen get traffic on and off Sherwood Forest," Hebert says.
This is the only DQ in Baton Rouge, but there's also one located in Central.
Hebert say plans are in the works to open another location in Prairieville in early 2013.
