Add Some Joy to Your Store!
After finishing as a finalist at a Revel Tech Competition, focusing on helping merchants save time and money, JoyUp team began to brainstorm issues for the merchants:
- How busy they must be.
- How the learning curve of social media holds back progress.
- Not knowing how to convert social media engagement into repeat orders.
JoyUp’s Joy’s mission grew to help food businesses achieve two personal goals:
- We want to know more about food trucks and independent shops in our community.
- We want to make ordering easier, because frankly we hate waiting in line no matter how good the food is.

This all comes together to bring the Revel system to life as a bot named Joy. By creating an easy to use platform that can communicate with both the merchant and the customer at the same time, Joy helps fill in the gaps that occur as a business moves from completely brick-and-mortar to a hybrid that is both online and offline. Instead of trying to replace systems merchants are already use to, Joy completely integrates with what they already have becoming a powerful tool instead of an annoyance. By making Joy as natural and non intrusive as possible, merchants can feel that they have a trustworthy employee who is always willing to work, and does not require the same worker’s benefits as regular employee.
