"Hop Jack’s established the Hop Jack's Good Neighbor Fund to help neighbors and team members in need. The fund raised over $88,000 and donated the money to various cancer organizations including: the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance to support breast cancer and prostate cancer patients; the American Heart Association; Relay for Life, supporting a vendors son in a car accident, a guests small child with brain cancer, and a variety of other local charities. Additionally, Hop Jack’s donates 25 cents from every Hop Jack's beer sold. In January 2017, Hop Jacks created a program called "Kids Feeding Kids” and through this program, 50 cents from every kid’s meal goes to support local school meal programs. Hop Jack’s also hires people with disabilities through Trillium, a nonprofit dedicated to helping people with disabilities find employment."
Congratulations to Hop Jack’s Featured Team Member for June, Shannon Sevier!
Since the opening of Hop Jack’s in Smokey Point in 2015, Shannon Sevier has been an integral part of the team. “Since day one she has always been available to support our managers. She’s dedicated to Hop Jack’s and we appreciate all she does for us,” said her manager, Luis.
Shannon is a flexible team player and has worked as a server, a trainer, in our bar and as a mid.
Her favorite part of the job is the relationships she’s created with her work family and all of her guests. When she’s off the clock she enjoys a grapefruit icy drink with Hop Jack's Fiesta Mac & Cheese.
One of Shannon’s most memorable work experiences was being a part of the Hop Jack’s beer tasting team at Northwest Brewing. This is an important group who selects the next Hop Jack’s tap beer feature.
She never wants to fill out another job application again and aspires to be a Hop Jack's manager one day!
Thank you Shannon for all you do, you are a leader and a wonderful person. We appreciate you every day!
Congratulations Ellyse Clogston, Hop Jack’s Featured Team Member for May!
Since opening in August of 2015, Hop Jack’s in Kennewick has a superstar in Ellyse Clogston! Ellyse is a bartender, safety lead, trainer, cocktail server and marketing lead!
If that’s not enough, Ellyse also participates in Hop Jack’s fundraising events including Relay for Life, walking to raise money for cancer.
Ellyse was born and raised in Brookings, a small town on the Oregon coast but she now calls Kennewick home and Hop Jack’s her family. She enjoys guest interaction and making a connection with them. She has been known to go above and beyond with guests even buying a regular dessert.
When dining at Hop Jack’s Ellyse enjoys a huckleberry icy drink and a cobb salad with Hop Jack’s house made avocado ranch dressing.
In her spare time she loves the outdoors, hiking and golfing. She also attends car shows with her best friend and spending time connecting with her fellow team members. Something most don’t know about Ellyse is that when she was living in Oregon she was into rock climbing and would spend her weekends exploring. One time while rock climbing she discovered a secret beach! We have discovered a gem in you, Ellyse!
Thank you for all you do for Hop Jack’s and congratulations on being selected as our Featured Team Member for May!
