In early June, I posted a story about how DQ was conducting a contest to find the biggest DQ fan in Texas,(you know, early June...back when temperatures were only in the 90s)/ Contestants had the opportunity to submit a brief summary of why it should be them.

Representatives with the Texas Dairy Queen Operators’ Council said that they heard from more than 6,700 worthy contenders who emerged from the search. But there can only be one winner. So drumroll, please. Say hello to … Brandi Wolfe of Lumberton, Texas!

“I have lived in my hometown for more than 30 years and Dairy Queen has been my go-to spot since I was a child,” said Brandi Wolfe, the Biggest DQ Fan in Texas. “I went on dates to DQ with my high school sweetheart, who is now my husband, and we love taking our children there which is beyond special in itself. I am ecstatic to be named the Biggest DQ Fan!”

As the Biggest DQ Fan in Texas, Mrs. Wolfe receives free Treats & Eats, DQ swag, Josh Abbott items (Josh sings the jingle That’s What I Like About Texas for DQ restaurants in Texas), Dr Pepper® shirts and a fun celebration at her DQ in Lumberton!

The four semi-finalists are all winners too and include:

  • Aidan (AJ) Adamek of Yoakum, TX
  • Cassidy Keuhl of Allen, TX
  • Garrett Estes of League City, TX
  • Hannah Baker of Deer Park, TX

The four semi-finalists will receive DQ gift cards, DQ shirts and Dr Pepper swag.

“We loved hearing all the stories and seeing all the photos from our fans enjoying their favorite Treats & Eats,” said Lou Romanus, CEO of the Texas Dairy Queen Operator’s Council. “And while it was difficult to choose, Brandi Wolfe made a great case for being our number one fan in Texas. We’re thrilled to recognize her passion for everything DQ. We were also impressed with AJ’s passion for our Jalitos and are recognizing him as the Biggest Jalitos Fan in Texas.”

“For the past several years, a group of my close friends and I have made Thursday our official Jalitos meeting day,” said Aidan (AJ) Adamek of Yoakum. “I have been ordering the same meal for so long, the employees know my order by heart. DQ is truly what I like about Texas! I am honored to be named the Biggest Jalitos Fan in Texas.”
