ELLSWORTH, Wis. -- Although the Ellsworth Dairy Queen is the first food service venture he's owned, Josh Wolfgram has plenty of experience serving customers. Wolfgram has worked with the public at car dealerships, in a business supply enterprise with his brothers and even at another Dairy Queen--the one in his hometown, Hudson. So the new local owner is eager to run an inviting establishment. "I want to make it as comfortable as possible for people," he said Friday, after buying the franchise and property from Jim and Sandee Coughlin the middle of last month.
