Our Story

In 2015, pappy sold his trucking business after 15 years and moved us to Durango from Jacksonville Florida. After retiring he knew he wanted to have another business and started a pizza company with our cousins, Jenny and Joel Harn, who have been in the pizza business for 40 years. After building 3 pizza stores on the east coast last year pappy decided to keep looking for a location in Durango so he could stay here full time. Pappy wanted to open a fun place where the kids could work with him and when the 3 peak’s deli location opportunity became available it was a no brainer for him!!! Pappy is using a 30 year old family dough and wing recipe to bring Durango the best product with the best ingredients possible, along with some great beer products too. His vision is to have a great place were the local kids can come work and families and friends in Durango can enjoy fun times together!!!

We hope you enjoy your experience at Happy Pappy’s and ya’ll come back soon!!!!
