Dairy Queen serving free ice cream cones all day Monday
(THE MED CITY BEAT) - Dairy Queen — with more than a dozen locations in southeast Minnesota — is celebrating its 75th anniversary by giving away free ice cream on Monday.
Note: Some area locations are stilled closed for the season. Contact your neighborhood DQ to check each location's hours.
The company will serve each customer one free small vanilla soft-serve cone, according to a news release.
The fact that the temperature will be close to 70 degrees in southeast Minnesota on Monday is purely a coincidence. The company chose March 16 because it's the 75th day of the year.
The restaurant chain will also be accepting donations for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. DQ has raised more than $100 million for the nonprofit in the past 30 years, notes the release.
The Minneapolis-based company has about 6,400 locations in more than two dozen countries. The company plans to announce other promotions throughout the year to celebrate its 75th anniversary.
