We had the good fortune of connecting with Cleon Bonner and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Cleon, how did you come up with the idea for your business?
As a natural gifted artist I felt there was a void and I wanted to separate myself from traditional daiquiri shops. Sip n paints are very popular the vibes the music bring your own bottle so with that being said a idea pop up in my head why not mesh the two together. I decided to create Happy Daiquiri To Go with the slogan Arrive Thirsty Leave Happy !!!!! A place where you can book sip n paints purchase art work book a event from pop up shops to birthday parties and most importantly have a nice strong tasty daiquiri to complete your day. We also have a art gallery on the wall with different artist and styles that you can purchase to hang in your house from small to large canvases. We also have custom membership cups that keeps your daiquiri super cold and everytime you bring it back in you can refill for only five dollars. Also we sell Mr Frickles pickles alcohol infused and regular cotton candy non acholic daiquiris and the best jello shots in Houston. Come see us 14715 T C Jester Suite 400
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
My artistic vision and determination is what separates me from others. I am most proud of the journey it took to get the business open and withstand covid which was very challenging but rewarding at the same time. Like the saying goes what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. The lessons I learned in the way is patience and to every problem that occur there is always a answer and solution. I would like the world to know about my brand besides being family oriented I stand behind my slogan Arrive Thirsty Forgot about any problems you have for the moment and leave happy live life to the fullest.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Well I would take them to Turkey Leg Hut this new spot called Drunken Corner food was delicious. Go downtown to ride the bikes and scooters in a group also go by Burns Barbecue in Acres home. Also I would have them try out Lone Star Barbecue off of Walters Rd and complete the journey with Happy Daiquiri To Go where we would have nice drinks vibes and wrap it up with a sip n paint listening to great throwback music of our choice.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to dedicate my success to my parents Leon Bonner Jr and my mother (RIP) Velda Bonner
