Jesse-Witte-FTM-JanuaryCongratulations to Hop Jack’s Featured Team Member for January, Jesse Witt!

Jesse has worked at the Klahanie Hop Jack’s since October 2017. In her short time with the company, she has made a huge impact. Her work ethic, dedication and eagerness to learn are just a few of the reasons she has been selected as Hop Jack’s featured team member for January 2018.

Jesse was chosen for several reasons including the pride she puts into her work, said her General Manager, Patrick Brown. “She doesn’t do anything half way.” She approaches work from the heart. “Being one of our younger team members she is always proving her skill set is that of someone who has many more years of experience. Jesse is always happy to come to work early or stay late.”

Jesse is a versatile employee and is trained as a busser, host, cold side in the kitchen and as an expo. When working in the kitchen she loves to create great looking, delicious food for her guests to enjoy.

When she is off the clock, Jesse enjoys the outdoors; riding dirt bikes, hiking and working on cars. She can change her own oil, fix tires, power steering and a few other car issues that have come up along the way.

When asked about her favorite “go to” Hop Jack’s menu items, Jesse loves chicken or beef nachos and sipping on a raspberry icy drink.

Thank you, Jesse, for your dedication, commitment to Hop Jack’s and the impact you’ve made at our Klahanie location! We appreciate you.

Since March of 2016 Katelynn has been a valued team member at our Smokey Point Hop Jack’s. She has trained and worked in a variety of positions making her an outstanding, valued team member.

Currently she is a mid-manager and a lead trainer but she is also savvy in both heart of the house and front of the house positions having been trained on both the hot and cold side, breakfast, DMO/salad and as an expo, host and busser! “Her versatility and ability to adapt to any situation sets her apart,” said Jaime Fox, Director of Training. “Katelynn has the ability to jump in and help out where ever she is needed. That is invaluable to us.”

Katelynn enjoys the company culture and working alongside her fellow team members. She especially appreciates having a management team who believes in her and her drive to develop and grow.

Dez-Featurd-Team-Member-OctoberCongratulations to Hop Jack’s Featured Team Member for October 2017, Dez Anderson!

A team member who can work multiple positions is invaluable to Hop Jack’s. Dez Anderson is trained as a busser, hostess and as a cold-side, heart of the house team member. She is also an expo and most recently was promoted to server!

“Dez is a team player who is always striving to help others and support our guests,” said Jaime Fox, Director of Training. “She is the epitome of what we look for when hiring. She is intelligent, friendly and dedicated.”

Dez started working at the Bonney Lake Hop Jack’s in September of 2016. Since then she has worked hard, and smart, to have brought her to where she is being recognized as a featured team member for the company. Her outgoing personality and optimism make her a joy to be around.

Dez loves Buffalo Chicken wings with a huge glass of water! (She loves water!)

Growing up in Enumclaw, not far from Hop Jack’s, she attributes her success to the support of her family. She keeps busy with life and enjoys shopping and spending time on road trips with family and friends.

Her most memorable moment to date at Hop Jack’s was when her GM, Angy, told her she would start training as a server.

We are grateful for your support, Dez, and look forward to watching you grow with us!

claytonCongratulations to Clayton Fast, Hop Jack’s Featured Team Member for September!

Versatility and loyalty are two words that describe September’s Featured Team Member, Clayton Fast. "We chose Clayton because he is a great gap filler for us. He is cross-trained in both the front and heart of the house and is able to support his team in a variety of different roles," said Stan Linn, Hop Jack’s Manager.

Since 2014, Clayton has been an excellent server, cook and bartender at the Hop Jack’s in Silverdale. In fact, amazingly, in one shift, he filled all three roles! This was one of his most memorable days at work.

His smile and enthusiasm are infectious and he makes a profound impact on both our guests and team members whenever he is in the building.
Clayton was raised in Bremerton and on his days off enjoys playing basketball and working out. When his shift ends, his favorite Hop Jack’s menu items are an ice cold Hop Jack’s Wheat Beer with a juicy 100% Angus Beef Burger.

He has made many wonderful memories during his tenure at Silverdale. One of his favorites is when a regular guest made a model of a ship that a team members husband was serving on. He also appreciates the team oriented culture and the Hop Jack’s family atmosphere.

A fun fact about Clayton is that he juggles and broke an elementary school record for riding a unicycle the longest distance!

Thanks for taking us the distance, Clayton! You’re amazing and we appreciate you! Congratulations on being selected Hop Jack’s Featured Team Member. It is well deserved!
