The “Milky Way” name reminds us of the wonderful ice cream products we make with milk that people love!
The Staples DQ is a third-generation family owned Dairy Queen.
It was built in the late 50s by the Hill & Anglin family and when Joan & Robert Doll purchased it in 1971 from Bill & Betty Peterson it was only a drive-up window service.
A semi-trailer truck crashed into the building in 1975 so the front of the building was rebuilt. Deb Doll Yoder (second generation) and Doyle Yoder became partners in 1976. In 1989, sit-in dining and a drive-through window was added. In 1997, the red, white and blue “blade sign” look was added, and finally in 2011 it was remodeled to its present look. Daughter, Staci Yoder Schultz, (third generation) is now the manager.
The Staples DQ is opened year-round offering all of the DQ products (cones, dilly bars, cakes, 5 Buck Lunch, and more!)
