Warren Buffett enjoys playing salesman-in-chief

RALSTON, Neb. (AP) - US billionaire Warren Buffett isn't just Berkshire Hathaway's chairman and CEO. He's also the chief salesman.

Mr Buffett visited a Dairy Queen on Monday evening to serve up the restaurant chain's new S'mores Blizzard flavour. Then he ate ice cream for the cameras.

Berkshire owns Dairy Queen, so Mr Buffett's always happy to talk about his favorite treats.

Dairy Queen CEO John Gainor presented Mr Buffett with a jersey labeling him the restaurant's No. 1 fan. Mr Buffett also wore his Dairy Queen tie.

Mr Gainor says it's nice to have a boss who's so willing to help promote Dairy Queen's products.

Berkshire Hathaway Inc. owns more than 80 companies, including insurance, railroad, utility, manufacturing and retail businesses.
