With a perfectly accurate name, Jump Start Espresso of Federal Way, Washington provides a jump start to busy commuters throughout this suburb of Seattle. Owned by twin sisters Stephanie and Mykel Papke, it stands to reason they’ve opened two identical drive thru coffee shops in the town they were born and raised.

“We’ve certainly been lucky to have remained open and retained our staff during the pandemic,” says Stephanie. “But it has certainly been a challenge to keep all of employees and customers safe.”

Understandably, the twins want to provide double benefits to the community. Exited to be a partner in Columbia Bank’s Pass It On Project, Jump Start Expresso is providing gift cards to the community, and Columbia Bank is picking up the tab. “We are passing it on by giving out gift cards to our customers,” says Mykel. It’s a great way for Jump Start to pass on some coffee love to their loyal customers.
