The new Dairy Queen in Richland that has been talked about since July is about to open in a few weeks. The new location is off Duportail Street behind the Maverik gas station at 3520 Keene Road. This new location replaces the Columbia Center location that closed early this year according to news reports. It is now one of seven local Dairy Queens owned by the Tierney family in the Tricities, Walla Walla, and Yakima markets.

This new restaurant will look a lot like the DQ that was built on Burden Blvd back in 2012 with patio and indoor seating.
