Dairy Queen

Welsh family celebrates 50th anniversary of Dairy Queen

Thursday, March 9, will mark the 50th year the Homewood Dairy Queen opens under the ownership of the Welsh family.

Homewood and Flossmoor residents are expected to flock to the store at Ridge Road and Gladville Avenue, despite the colder temperatures. It’s the tradition that counts, and the Welsh family has been doing a great job of satisfying the community’s urges for those Dilly Bars, Blizzards and special treats.
