History- (from Wikipedia) The soft-serve formula popularized by Dairy Queen was developed in 1938 by John Fremont "Grandpa" McCullough and his son. They convinced friend Sherb Noble to offer the product in his ice cream store in Kankakee, Illinois. On the first day of sales, Noble sold 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. The chain has used a franchise system to expand its operations globally. At the end of its fiscal year 2014, Dairy Queen reported over 6,400 stores in more than 25 countries. About 4,500 of its stores were located in the United States. The first store in Canada opened in Melville, Saskatchewan, in 1953. According to Wikipedia the busiest Dairy Queen in the world is in Charlottetown. Condition- This ad is in excellent condition. The picture shows the untrimmed ad.
