Yummy, Daleville! The new doughnut shop called Blue Collar Joe’s is open for business and the treats are tasty pastry!
Tim Cupp of Fincastle buys a half dozen assorted cake doughnuts from Daniel Knight the proprietor of Blue Collar Joe’s in Daleville on Monday morning.
The shop will be open Monday through Friday at 6:30 a.m. until early evening. The drive thru isn’t open yet but “Joe” who is really Daniel Knight the owner, is serving many interesting cake type doughnut combos. The “Botetourt Bog” for instance is a triple dip chocolate with oreo dust. He has a handipped in locally made apple cider with caramel icing, a blueberry with bacon dust and maple syrup that he calls “North meets South.” Doughnuts per dozen cost $8.95. He sells by the half dozen also at $4.85 and singly the price varies by doughnut. Blue Collar Joe’s has coffee in all sizes and many flavors.
The shop opened on Saturday and had 50 customers and on Sunday about 60 customers. On Monday morning a steady stream of visitors came into the shop.
On Saturday and Sunday the store will open around 7:30 and “Joe” is still not sure what time he will be closing in the evenings. There are picnic tables outside for seating, otherwise the store is carry out. The glass Display cases glisten in the early morning sun and a t-shirt wall is at the left of the counter. Along the other wall a variety of ice cream tubs fill a freezer.
Blue Collar Joe’s will soon have an adoption list for dogs from the League of Animal Protection and Roanoke Valley SPCA hanging on the wals. The Knight’s dogs loom large in photos along the back wall.
