UPDATE 3/14/2020 – As per the following e-mail which I just received, DQ is postponing Free Cone Day 2020:
“In light of the growing concerns about COVID-19 (coronavirus), and the precautions established by the World Health Organization and government agencies around large public gatherings, we made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s Free Cone Day, which was scheduled for Thursday, March 19 in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.”
We will provide updates on this page as soon as they are available. Please disregard the previous information below which is now only for reference purposes.
