What’s Up


All during the month of July, listen to the radio each day to hear what the forecast is calling for the high temp! 

All day long, Kwik Stop / Dairy Queen will be selling small cones for that price!  

High temp forecast is 78….a small cone is 78 cents!  High is 96…a small cone is 96 cents.  Make sense?

You’ll hear the forecasted high temp every hour, all day long!  

Then enjoy a small vanilla, chocolate, or twist cone! 

Available at Kwik Stop / Dairy Queen restaurant locations in Dubuque, Key West, and Peosta!
