FARGO—Another Dairy Queen is coming soon to a growing part of south Fargo.

Initial plans were filed with the city of Fargo last week for the footings, foundation and site work for a new Dairy Queen restaurant at 5131 Prosperity Way S., which is just north of 52nd Avenue South and a few blocks east of Interstate 29.

Early plans were entered into the city's plan routing system Nov. 21 and approved Monday, Nov. 27. According to city records, the one-story building will have a gross floor area of 3,111 square feet.

More details, including a timeline of when the restaurant is expected to open and who owns this location of the soft serve franchise, weren't immediately available.

The new restaurant will join a growing list of Dairy Queens in the community, including a new location at 3234 Sheyenne St. S. in West Fargo that's expected to open soon, according to the company website. That will be the second West Fargo restaurant for the brand, which already has a location at 1110 13th Ave. E.

Fargo has several Dairy Queens at 402 N. University Drive, 3201 13th Ave. S., 3200 20th St. S., 2401 45th St. S., 4015 45th St. S. and inside West Acres Shopping Center, 3902 13th Ave. S. There are two in Moorhead, 24 8th St. S. and 802 30th Ave. S.
