Dairy Boy was an Oklahoma chain which was established in 1957. The first location was in Oklahoma City. Franchising began almost immediately. By 1962, there were 165 locations. Most of them were built in small towns to avoid competition with Dairy Queen. The original buildings were produced by Valentine.

The sign in Jet was all that remained of that location. This photo is from 2011. I'm pretty sure that this sign is gone now.

I believe the "running boy" sign at the Lexington location was the only one left. These photos are from 2011. This location closed in 2013. The building was demolished and the sign gone by 2016. The sign is now at the Okemah location.

I believe this Okemah location is the only one still operating. The sign came from the Lexington location when it closed. It was repainted before being installed here. [map]

There were locations in Bartlesville, OK, Weatherford, OK, and El Reno, OK which are gone now. A Minco, OK operated until around 2021 and now houses a cannabis store. For more, see this website.
