O'Joy

New Main Squeeze


by Nicole Beckley

Walk into the Burnet Road smoothie and juice shop O’Joy and you’ll be met with a colorful mural highlighting some of Austin’s notable landmarks — think the Capitol, 6th Street, the Congress Avenue bridge — surrounded by a flowing river of juice. The mural, designed by artist Jarrett Leger, correlates to O’Joy’s juice menu, which features Austin-inspired items like “Mount Bonnana.” For each menu item sold, O’Joy donates funding to No Kid Hungry and Rice Bowl, charities that provide meals for children. “I’ve always been interested in sustainable food and farm to table initiatives and the one-for-one movement,” says O’Joy founder Michael Ramos-Lynch. Collaborating with his wife, Ghena, and childhood friend Steven Jolly, Ramos-Lynch left his law firm job to start the venture, aiming to pay it forward. “I have a lot of love for Austin,” Ramos-Lynch says, “What I wanted to do in the shop was reflect that appreciation.”
