American Dairy Queen Corporation recently announced its new Dairy Queen Restaurant opening in Livingston. Conveniently situated at 1835 US Highway 190 W., the restaurant is owned by, Sammy Bhakta.

A welcoming environment for all, each Dairy Queen Restaurant location features a modern, open-air grill, separate “Grill” and “Chill” sections, comfortable booths, large wooden tables, warm lighting and upbeat music.

“What I enjoy most about the DQ brand is how warm and inviting it feels the second you walk into any Dairy Queen Restaurant,” says Bhakta. “I always look forward to meeting new people and this new business venture will allow me to get to know even more of the community.”

Bhakta has spent many years in the hospitality and restaurant industry and opening a Dairy Queen Restaurant was the natural next step for him. In his personal life, Bhakta spends much of his time continuing to engrain himself within his community through social work.

“Texas loves the DQ brand and we love it right back. There is such an amazing culture around the brand in this state and I’m happy to be including Livingston in this fanfare with my new location,” says Bhakta. “Can’t wait to continue the tradition of serving great food and classic frozen treats to DQ fans for many years to come.”

What began as the 10-cent sale of an unknown frozen treat in 1938 quickly boomed into one of the most well-known companies of all time. Maintaining its recipe for success throughout nearly 80 years, ADQ has more than 7,000 locations worldwide and is initiating a plan to add more than 70 new restaurants in the United States in 2019.
