A Chinatown-based Coffee Company Serves Up Caffeine and Smiles for Frontline Medical Workers

A buzz-worthy business.

With a pop-up shop in the heart of LA’s Chinatown, Thank You Coffee is brewing up plenty of gratitude from frontline medical workers. Started by business partners Jonathan Yang, Matt Chung and Cody Wang in March, the team has donated hundreds of deliverable coffee drinks to hospital workers, more than double what they’ve sold from their small operation with limited equipment. Their products come in 12-ounce bottles and 64-ounce jugs with handwritten messages and smiley faces.

According to LA Magazine, “It’s possible for anybody to order pick-up drinks on Mondays and Wednesdays and delivery on Tuesdays and Thursdays. More often, Thank You Coffee drops off bottled beverages to healthcare heroes at larger facilities like L.A. County and USC Medical Center and Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center through Donate PPE and for friends and acquaintances in the medical world. McCormick Ambulance Service, Southland Care Center, Herald Christian Health Center, Cal Veterans Home of California Pharmacy, and Los Alamitos Medical Center have all benefited from Thank You Coffee drop-offs.”
