OHIO CITY, Ohio — For most people, cereal is a breakfast food or a quick snack, but a new business in Ohio City is turning the popular treat into an experience.
Day and Night Cereal Bar is a brand-new concept located at the corner of West 25th Street and Lorain Avenue.
"I think a lot of people see cereal and you just automatically assume that it's a breakfast thing for us. It's more of, it's an experience," said co-owner Tony Jones.
It's an experience created by your favorite variety, whether that’s Lucky Charms, Fruit Loops or Captain Crunch, plus your choice of whole, skim, almond or oat milk.
"So anything on the menu, you can kind of make it into an ice cream bowl with cereal milk, or you can get into a milkshake so you can get creative as you want, or, you know, basic as you want," explained co-owner, Reggie Crumpton.
The business began as a food truck in Los Angeles, but has expanded to include brick-and-mortar locations in Maryland, North Carolina, Washington, D.C. and now Cleveland.
The Cleveland location is owned by a trio of talents from right here in Northeast Ohio—Reggie Crumpton, Leanne Jones, and Tony, who says Cleveland deserves unique experiences.
"Cleveland deserves out town vibes. I am so big on like, bringing that energy back to my city. I love Cleveland. I am a Cleveland guy," he said passionately.
All three owners want Day and Night to be a resource for the city, a hub for people of all ages.
"We're giving you laughs. We're giving you a good time. We put cartoons on for the kids," Jones explained. "It's ours, I feel like. And when I say that, I mean like it's ours as the community of Cleveland.
They even have artwork dedicated to iconic Cleveland figures, designed by co-owner Leanne.
"We want people to understand, like we value our city. Like everyone needs to be seen and heard, and that's what you're gonna get in Day and Night," said Jones.
Day and Night is a cashless business, and they’re open Tuesday-Saturday, from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m.
They’re waiting to bring you a unique experience.
