Happy Joe's Pizza and Ice Cream Franchise Opportunity


The most rewarding feeling I get from owning Happy Joe’s Pizza & Ice Cream Parlors in Dubuque is being able to carry on the culture that Happy Joe Whitty and our ownership in Dubuque has created in our community over the past 50 years. It’s also very rewarding to see how our staff takes great pride in ensuring we provide the best products and service every day. They love Happy Joe’s as much as we do. We have three very successful locations in Dubuque Iowa with an extremely loyal following that goes back generations. In our community, Happy Joe’s is like an extended family member. We are the place to go for birthdays, family get-togethers, celebrations, and hanging out with friends. We hear stories daily about the wonderful memories our guests have made at our Happy Joe’s locations. That is something to be very happy about.

Being part of Happy Joe’s Pizza & Ice Cream Parlors has been a wonderful decision for our family. We have operated a popular location in Lancaster Wisconsin for years and have recently opened our second location in Galena Illinois. The Happy Joe’s Support team was extremely helpful with opening. Our locations have beautiful dining rooms, and a Family Fun Center where kids can play games and win prizes. We also offer carry out and delivery services. The love and loyalty our guests have for the Happy Joe’s brand is truly amazing. We take pride in being very involved in our communities and feel honored to be a part of continuing Joe’s legacy, serving the world’s best pizza and making people happy!
