Dairy Queen opened its 200th location in China, and expects to open 500 more in that country in the next five years.
International Dairy Queen Inc., based in Edina, said the 200th store is located in Xi’an, the capital city of Shaanxi Province. Dairy Queen entered China in 1991, and projects that China will be the company’s largest market outside of North America by 2010.
“The Dairy Queen brand has experienced tremendous growth in China over the past several years and we look forward to continued expansion with our development partners,” said John Gainor, president and CEO of the company.
Dairy Queen has more than 5,600 locations worldwide, and is part of Omaha-based Berkshire Hathaway Inc., which is owned by Warren Buffett.
