Dairy Queen reopening on Fulling Mill Road now appears unlikely

Posted

It doesn’t look good for a Dairy Queen reopening anytime soon at 1100 Fulling Mill Road in Lower Swatara Township, if at all.

In March, Brian Dmochowski, the territory operator for this region for American Dairy Queen Corp., told the Press & Journal two people were interested in reopening the space as a Dairy Queen franchise.

But on Monday, Dmochowski said that neither of these two had panned out. He said he was not aware of any other interest in reopening the store as a Dairy Queen.

Previous owners decided to close the Dairy Queen, after a Feb. 25 inspection by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture found the restaurant to be out of compliance with state regulations.

The inspection was prompted by ownership of the Fulling Mill Road Dairy Queen changing hands in early January.

The new owner had failed to renew their license with the state, according to Agriculture department spokeswoman Shannon Powers.

The Fulling Mill Road location had been a Dairy Queen since 1998 or 1999, according to Dmochowski.
