Dairy Queen of Omaha has decided to offer a dairy free version of some of its signature desserts for its new owners.
The move comes after the chain announced last week that it had signed a deal with a Chinese manufacturer that it believes can provide dairy free desserts to its customers.
The chain announced in February that it would begin selling dairy free menu items at some locations, including the new locations at Dairy Queen and Dairy Queen Cafe.
Dairy Queen of Lincoln and Omaha said it will offer a full dairy free buffet of some favorites, including chocolate chip cookie dough with cinnamon sugar and vanilla ice cream, ice cream sundae, lemonade and chocolate chip cookies.
The company will also offer dairy-free appetizers such as macarons and cream soups, cookies, and cakes.
Desserts will also be available for $3.99.
Dignity Foods, which operates the restaurant in the city, will also continue to sell dairy free items, the chain said.
The chain said it also will continue to offer the company’s chocolate chip doughnut for $2.99 and the chocolate chip pie for $1.99.
“Dignities Foods will continue offering a full menu of dairy free food for the first time ever at D.C. Diner,” the chain tweeted on Thursday.
“The Diner will be closed on February 8.
Diners will be able to order through D.O.D.D.”
Dairy free options have become a popular trend among restaurant chains.
Dairy Queen, which is the second largest restaurant chain in the country, launched a $4-per-day discount for customers on February 1 that has since been expanded to the Omaha location.
Dryads first menu option was introduced in 2010 and has become popular among diners.
Dairy Free Cafe, a chain of cafes in Washington D.N.C., introduced a $2-per person special that allowed diners to get dairy free foods for free in 2016.
