Lafayette broadcasting legend Steve Peloquin has been on Cloud 9 ever since he learned the big news -- Lafayette is getting another Dairy Queen!

The new Dairy Queen Grill & Chill will be located at 2121 Kaliste Saloom Road, next to Candlewood Suites.

The only other Lafayette DQ (of which Stevie P was the first customer) is located at 5732 Johnston Street and has been open since 2014.

According to Developing Lafayette, when it first opened, this particular location set an all-time company record for best Grand Opening, with lines to the restaurant blocking traffic for multiple weeks.

Construction for the new Dairy Queen is set to begin this week with estimated completion in about four months. That would make the opening possibly in January 2020.
