Is there JOY in Dairy Joy?

I know there are Dairy Joy stores in other cities and states but how many of you grab an ice cream cone at at their walk-up window? I never have and I have never been drawn to pull in and partake; maybe I'm un-American or something. There's nothing wrong if Dairy Joy is your idea of ice cream sundae heaven, but it leaves me cold. I look at this store and think 1958, hot Chevys cruising by and poodle skirts. Is it the architecture? Or the concept that worked so well with MacDonald's when they began but has since been replaced by inside dining. What's wrong with my perception here?

Does anyone know a history of Dairy Joy, where they began or have really fun memories of getting a triple scoop there?


  1. Never heard of Daily Joy! Looks like a poor man's version of Dairy Queen.

    But that's not fair, 'cause maybe they have really good ice cream.

    It seems it would behoove you to stop and check things out - you know, for your fellow CDP bloggers...

  2. Sounds like a disgruntled employee of another "Dairy" struck out on his own. Or, maybe it's the other way around. Hmmm.

  3. I'm with you. There is very old-fashioned. I don't know Dairy Joy, but it reminds me of Dairy Queen, another old-fashioned chain.
