A Blizzard is coming to Lenoir.


Make that a Dairy Queen Blizzard.


Officials from Bloomington, Minn.-based Fourteen Foods, a Dairy Queen franchisee that operates nearly 200 stores throughout the country, have confirmed that the restaurant will be locating in the former Jack in the Box at 344 Blowing Rock Boulevard.


Work currently is under way to renovate the building into a Dairy Queen site, and the new eatery is expected to open in March. The building has been vacant since Jack in the Box closed in March 2015.


Along with its signature Blizzards, Dairy Queen features burgers, chicken, soft serve ice cream, and ice cream cakes. First opened in 1940 in Joliet, Ill., Dairy Queen has nearly 5,000 restaurants across the U.S.


Dairy Queen is the latest national franchise to locate in Lenoir. Earlier this year, Zaxby’s opened in the North Hill Plaza shopping center. In addition, Chick-fil-A currently is building a restaurant in the Lenoir Crossing shopping center that is expected to open in early February.
