    What is the meaning you draw from the expression "joy to go"?

    I want to know what this expression means to an English speaker and if it is grammatically acceptable. We wish to use it as a slogan for a footwear company and would appreciate some opinions on whether this would be 1. correct and 2. with a relevant meaning for the public. Thanks!

    It means nothing to me as a slogan.

    "To go" is regularly used in connection with food you can take away with you from the place it's cooked. However, since we rarely stay in one place to experience joy, I can't see the point in suggesting that you can take joy with you.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    A walk-up cupcake kiosk where you buy a cupcake and then you go about on your way might be "Joy to go" but it doesn't work for me for a footwear company.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    "Joy to go" would be a great slogan for a laxative, or maybe even adult diapers.
