McDonald's To Become Hickory Dairy Queen's New Neighbor

The fast food joint will soon have a new location in Hickory.

Dairy Queen is gaining McDonald's as a neighbor, with a new Hickory location currently under construction next door to the ice cream shop.

The site at 1502 Conowingo Road, at the intersection of Conowingo Road and the Hickory Bypass, shows signs of change.

A building permit has been issued by the county and S. Thomas Contracting, a based excavation company in charge of developing the site, confirms the McDonald's is currently under construction.

Do you think a McDonald's at this location will serve the community well? Why or why not? Leave a comment.

We do not need more crappy fast food. We do need healthier choices. I agree with Blue Starmom. As a gluten free vegetarian trying to raise a healthy child, I would love to see a vegan restaurant in Harford County. We need to get with the times.

If the area would support a vegan restaurant, someone would open one. If this McDonald's is successful, then it would turn out to have been a good idea to locate a store there. That's the way the free market (as free as Annapolis and DC allow it to be) works.

Yet another place I will pass by out of Hickory.That along with the new Royal Farms just give me another place to watch out for traffic.I am hoping that Baja Fresh will come back to the area near here,actually quite a good for healthy food.Mcdonald's besides having bad food also has bad customers,hyper and loud.

What we need for a healthier option is a Cosi. Awesome food and voted best healthy fast food several years ago. I only know of one down in Baltimore. Now I'm craving their signature salad and freshly made flatbread!
