S. Wichita Dairy Queen Owner Received Cards for Her 90th Birthday

| Today Headlines | Fox News

WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) – Richard Barrett has owned the Dairy Queen at 849 S. Poplar for over 30 years. At the moment, he’s managing it on his own. He became famous enough in the community to turn 90 and still work in his company.

“I think he’s a great guy and does a great job,” said one client.

On Saturday, he will be 90 years old and the community has mobilized and sent him cards. He says he has received over 100 so far.

“It was a little overwhelming for me, I wasn’t expecting something like that at all,” Barrett said.

People write messages and memories of their time stopping and eating ice cream in his store.

“I didn’t know a lot of people were so interested in me.”

It comes just a few weeks before he shuts down for the winter and potentially sells his business to someone else.

“Not many people have a job that they can make people happy,” Barrett said.

Cards can be sent to Dairy Queen, 849 S. Poplar, Wichita, KS 67211.
