Kevin Mims & Joey Muckenthaler - Deacon Baldy's Bar & Food Trucks

Kevin Mims & Joey Muckenthaler / Deacon Baldy’s Bar & Food Trucks

Kevin is the middle of son of Deacon Baldy. He grew up playing football with Joey at The Woodlands High School where he earned a football scholarship to play at Northwestern University in Chicago. At NU, he was a four-year starter at defensive end, majored in Mechanical Engineering, and met his bride Courtnie who was the Captain of the volleyball team. Coming home immediately after his final game, Kevin and his dad started the company that sits behind Deacon Baldy’s, Imagi-Motive. Imagi-Motive builds custom vehicles and trailers, and it was the desire to grow the food truck line of Imagi-Motive that spawned the idea for Deacon Baldy’s. Since Kevin’s dad’s passing in January 2015, Kevin has become the President of Gene Mims Investments – a real estate management company – founded Deacon Baldy’s, and is now also the CEO of a tech start-up called yüngo. Along with being a serial entrepreneur, Kevin and Courtnie have their fourth child on the way. “Busy is good”


Joey and Kevin are high school friends from The Woodlands, TX where they were teammates playing football. Joey then went on to get a sociology degree from Texas A&M in 2008. Right out of college, Joey became a youth minister at St. Helen Catholic Church in Georgetown, TX before moving a little closer to home and serving as the Director of Youth Ministry at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in Houston.  Throughout college and his early career, Joey fell in love with Craft Beer; a close second to his bride Angie and their three amazing kids. After hearing Kevin’s idea of opening a food truck park in Magnolia, Joey immediately suggested opening a craft beer bar alongside it. Though he had to be reined in from his dream of 100 beer taps, Joey was the perfect fit to run the bar program. Joey started with Deacon Baldy’s back in January 2016 working on the design and development of the building, bar space, and bar program.
