Happy Joe's Kicks Off Summer with BBQ and Dr PepperDavenport, IA  (RestaurantNews.com)  Happy Joe’s Pizza & Ice Cream is smokin’ up the summer with a BBQ season full of flavor.

Beginning Wednesday, June 28, Happy Joe’s will be ready to host cookouts with its blissful selection of appetizers, pizza, and desserts. The Midwestern brand is offering three choices of its delicious BBQ Pizzas — beef, chicken or Canadian bacon — at $19.99 each throughout this campaign. To keep the fire burning, new smokey BBQ Pork Wings have been added to the menu for the summer. And no cookout is complete without something sweet — Happy Joe’s small Apple Pie Dessert Pizza and Joe’s NEW Cookie Pizza will help guests finish off their meal with a smile at $8.99 each.

Of course, the proprietary combination of 23 flavors of Dr Pepper goes great with anything barbecue. Happy Joe’s Pizza & Ice Cream parlors will now be carrying Dr Pepper in their locations — but what’s even more fun is the creation of a new, sweet and tasty Dr Pepper barbecue sauce that will be available as an option on pizzas and wings all summer long, due to its newest partnership.

“There’s no need to grill outside when you can just stop by Happy Joe’s to get the same rich and smokey BBQ flavors everyone loves but with our innovative Happy Joe’s spin on it,” said CEO and Chief Happiness Officer Tom Sacco. “We’re thrilled to have these unique and flavorful offerings on our hand-crafted pizzas and wings for our guests to enjoy this summer and put a smile on their faces. With the addition of our Dr Pepper BBQ sauce and its proprietary combination of 23 flavors, it’s unbeatable.”

In honor of National Grilling Month, Happy Joe’s will reward one lucky winner with a $1,200 gift card toward any grill they want. Guests can sign up in-store and the drawing will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 13!

Happy Joe’s summer BBQ options will be available until Sept. 13. The iconic Midwestern brand’s BBQ pizzas feature a tangy BBQ sauce base, a choice of hickory-smoked beef, grilled chicken or Canadian bacon, and are topped with a blend of cheddar, mozzarella and provolone cheeses. Once cooked in the oven, the pizzas provide the perfect mix of BBQ bliss and pizza perfection. To enhance the flavors, the Dr Pepper BBQ sauce will consistently deliver and give BBQ lovers another happy reason to love Happy Joe’s!
