“CFB Group will be the first franchise group to open food-centric DQ restaurants in China and the only to own food-centric restaurants in Asia, widening its footprint in our fastest-growing market worldwide,” says Nicolas Boudet, International Dairy Queen’s chief operating officer, international, in a press release.
