This ‘mobile bar’ truck is the first of its kind in Dayton

The newest Dayton food truck to arrive on the scene isn't really a food truck at all.

Joy Juice Dayton is the first-ever mobile craft beer, cocktail and wine bar in the Miami Valley. Owners of Pa's Pork food truck, Pete and Angela Olejnicek, are the geniuses behind Joy Juice.

An idea that has been brewing in their brains since 2014, Angela said she and Pete knew the time was right once pedal pubs were legalized in Dayton earlier this year.

"Pete and I brainstormed the idea in 2014 when people at food truck rallies kept asking us, ‘Where’s the beer?’” Angela said.

Because of state laws and liquor license guidelines, exclusively serving alcoholic beverages has a been a complicated ordeal for the food truck community. That’s why, for now, Joy Juice Dayton will only be booking private events and some events where they are able to collaborate with local non-profits.

The Olejniceks believe Joy Juice Dayton will be so well-received that they are already on the search for a second truck to restore.

“15 years ago, Dayton was dying,” Angela said. “Now, people, small businesses, entrepreneurs are flooding back. It’s a heartwarming thing to see Dayton coming back to life.”

Joy Juice Dayton is expected to begin scheduling bookings and events in two weeks and to be up and running by late September.
