 Dr Pepper Restoration Project 

Mount Pleasant, Texas


The Dr Pepper brick advertisement located on the side of Jo's Downtown is one of

the largest hand-painted Dr Pepper advertisements in America and the largest in Texas.

During the time of its restoration the building was owned by Jo Campbell and was the home to her

business Jo's Antiques. For many years she tried to get the billboard redone until finally making contact

with Main Street Director Jacob Hatfield who opened the door to Dr Pepper by calling the Dr Pepper headquarters in Dallas, Texas. Jacob's phone call was soon returned by Division Sales Manager

for Dr Pepper's Heartland Region Scott McDowell and Dr Pepper got involved right away.


"We were very interested in helping re-do the mural," said Scott McDowell. "We thought

this was good fit for Dr Pepper to work with the City of Mount Pleasant to

make this happen and bring the mural back to reality."


"Restoration of this mural helps restore a piece of our city's history,"  

said Jacob Hatfield.


"It truly was a joint effort," Jo Campbell said. " One person couldn't get it all done.

It took everyone pulling together."
