PENDLETON - The first coffee drive-thru in Pendleton is under new ownership. Jani and Ron Bryant have bought Jump Start Expresso and spruced it up a tinge.

Phyllis Mayberry opened Jump Start in 1994 and owned and ran she wanted to retire.

"When I grow up I want to be her," Jani Bryant said.

She will run the business while her husband continues his job as a power company tree trimmer. In passing on the business, Mayberry wanted to make sure customers continued to receive good service. So Mayberry put Jani Bryant through customer service training to meet that goal.

Bryant said she's excited about the venture. To see the changes, Jump Start Expresso is at 1803 S.W. Emigrant Ave.
