Freshly Renovated Dairy Queen Opens Doors in Ocean City, Maryland

SALISBURY, MARYLAND – July 20, 2022 – Gillis Gilkerson (GGI) recently completed a full interior and exterior renovation of the Dairy Queen restaurant and ice creamery located on 114th Street in Ocean City, Maryland. The +/- 3,240 square foot building, former home of Gold Coast Liquor Store, now features a fresh, modern design to welcome customers complete with a drive-thru, quick service lane.

“Gillis Gilkerson continuously finds solutions for any obstacle that comes their way throughout the construction process,” said owner Mike Ramadan. “This is the second project that GGI has successfully delivered to me within the past year. They even finished the Dairy Queen in time for the July 4th weekend!”

Led by Project Manager Jared King, Gillis Gilkerson’s construction team updated the storefront, bathrooms, flooring, and parking lot in addition to completing other renovation work within the constraints of a strict timeline. “It was a great experience being able to lead the team through the construction process for this building,” said King. “The new Dairy Queen definitely stands out from everything else in the shopping center and we are all happy with the final product.”

“Our company is lucky to have a plethora of repeat clients,” said Dwight Miller, President of GGI. “But, to have one client we’ve completed two projects for in a year is truly something to be proud of.”
