Dairy Queen to Open Huntington Location Next Year

A good kind of "Blizzard" is coming to town.

Dairy Queen's Long Island rebirth is coming to Suffolk County next year–or more specifically, to Huntington. 

According to the New York Real Estate Journal, Dairy Queen Grill and Chill has leased the currently vacant property at 321 West Jericho Turnpike, right around the block from Walt Whitman High School. 

The lease was negotiated by Breslin Realty Development Corp., which also negotiated a deal last year in Massapequa for the first new Dairy Queen location on Long Island since the 1970s. 

"We are so excited to come to Huntington!," Long Island DQ wrote on its Facebook page recently. "We are hoping for a spring 2015 opening."

The Massapequa Dairy Queen restaurant opened last July. A Levittown location is also coming soon. 

Are you a Dairy Queen fan? Do you think it's a good fit for Huntington? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.

I am glad DQ is coming to Huntington, however, there are many other suitable areas. There's already a huge problem with people crossing Jericho, and so many fast good in one spot. Blockbuster would have been great, or where sitar was, even many places down 110. As it is people pulling out of dd, and bk pull right in front of you. Be safe.

The old Sitar site would be lousy -- too far away from anything. I agree the Blockbuster site would have been better, but still, happy to see DQ coming to Huntington.
