Walkerton is about to get a new 'sweet treat' just in time for summer with a new Dairy Queen.

Richard (Dick) Turner, Greg Williams and Tracy David have formed a team to bring the new business to Walkerton.

David, retired Chief of Police of Hanover, will officially be 'General Manager'.  "It's hard to believe but I've always wanted to be involved in a Dairy Queen operation, so when I retired from policing after 32 years and Richard asked me to join the team, I jumped at the chance."

Richard Turner has turned his hand to several businesses including Heritage Homes for seniors and now is dipping into a new endeavour.  "I bought the building some three years ago, but didn't know what it should become.  Then, we thought of Dairy Queen because Walkerton doesn't have one and we thought it was needed."

Greg Williams works on the logistics of the construction side of things.  "Richard and I have worked together for 10 years and this building had to be completely gutted and re-built inside.  What was once a ladder leading up into a more or less storage area, is now a staircase leading up to an entire new space that includes a meeting room."
