What’s BBQ & Bar is the leading BBQ restaurant serving LeClaire, IA and the surrounding areas. They specialize in brisket, pulled pork, ribs, chicken and smoked meats with Cajun specials and gluten-free and vegetarian options. They first signed up for CloseBy® Text Marketing in February of 2021, and have since built their list to 288 subscribers!

Owner, Mike Hunter, loves the direct line of communication that CloseBy® offers his business, and has been able to drive a lot of business by sending out messages that highlight their specials and bring in more traffic on slow days. Recently the program even opened them up to a new business opportunity. After the success that CloseBy® brought to a recent community event, they were able to begin an official partnership with a local brewery.

Hear from Mike Hunt himself about the wonderful opportunity that led to a CloseBy® success story:

“I tell everyone about our CloseBy® Text Marketing Program! We recently partnered with a brewery in our community where we come and serve food for their Thursday Night Trivia, as they don’t have food there. One of the owners let us know that there were at least 5 tables that were specifically in the brewery that night because What BBQ was going to be there, they had found out through their Text Club that had joined. People normally leave after trivia is over or once they get hungry, however nobody left, the place was packed all night due to What BBQ serving food, the brewery & the text program. We have officially partnered with them going forward for every Thursday because it was such a success!”
