The soft serve ice cream formula was first developed in 1938 by John Fremont "Grandpa" McCullough (1871‒1963) and his son Bradley. They convinced friend and customer Sheb Noble to offer the product in his ice cream store in Kankakee, Illinois. On the first day of sales, Noble dished out more than 1,600 servings of the new dessert within two hours. Noble and the McCulloughs went on to open the first Dairy Queen store in 1940 in Joliet, Illinois. While this Dairy Queen is no longer in operation, the building is still located at 501 N Chicago St.

Dairy Queen (DQ) was an early pioneer of food franchising. Since 1940, DQ has used a franchise system to expand its operations globally, expanding its 10 stores in 1941 to 100 by 1947, 1,446 in 1950, and 2,600 in 1955. The first store in Canada opened in Estevan, Saskatchewan, in 1953. The red Dairy Queen symbol was introduced in 1959. The company became International Dairy Queen, Inc. (IDQ) in 1962. Dairy Queen was a fixture of social life in small towns of the Midwestern and Southern United States during the 1950s and 1960s.

Offered here is a rare vintage electric lighted Dairy Queen ice cream advertising clock manufactured by the PAM clock company.
