Meet The Haus Coffee Shop
The Haus Coffee Shop is owned by mother-son team, Rhonda Bartz and Michael Defelice, and fueled by a mutual passion for coffee and entrepreneurship. While going into business with your family may make some people cringe, these two have got it down.
“This isn’t for everyone,” Defelice said. “It can look like a reality show really quick, but my mother and I are a really great team.”
That teamwork often means they divide and conquer the responsibilities of owning and running the coffee shop. Bartz tackles the finances and handles networking through the local chamber of commerce, while Defelice possesses the majority of the coffee expertise and manages the shop. Regardless of their day-to-day tasks, the highlight of the work for both partners is the interactions they have with the people they serve.
“I think the best thing is coming to work every day, opening the doors and having people come in and smile at you,” Bartz said. “What we are offering is a caffeinated beverage, and everybody that wakes up, for the most part, always wants their caffeinated beverage. We provide them with something they need to get going on their day, and in return, we get a really appreciative smile. What better business to choose than when you make people happy?”
But as far as the actual coffee goes, it’s definitely about more than the caffeine. The Haus Coffee Shop uses ethically sourced coffee beans from all over the world, roasted by other local businesses: Zeal Coffee Roasters in Tampa, Florida, and Eastlick Coffee Company in Saint Petersburg, Florida.
“I like knowing that we’re supporting people from other places in the world,” Defelice said. “Most coffee comes from developing countries, so when you buy a cup of coffee, you’re not just supporting the coffee shop. You’re also supporting a farm out in Ecuador and a roaster in Tampa and so on. You’re really making a difference in a lot of folks’ lives when you buy coffee.”
While supporting others is certainly a perk of owning a coffee shop, the best part for Bartz and Defelice is that they get to work together on something that’s all their own.
“It takes a team effort to really make a small business thrive,” Bartz said. “Without my son’s help, this place would not have happened. It’s really been a good adventure over the past four years.”
That adventure has resulted in a lot of well-caffeinated customers. So if a quality cup of joe in a place that feels like home sounds like something you’d enjoy, head over to The Haus Coffee Shop. You’ll see just how good coffee can be.
How to Find Your Routing & Account Numbers
When you make a payment online, by phone or on a mobile device, you may be asked for our routing number and your checking account number. Credit unions and banks use these numbers to identify accounts and make sure money gets where it’s supposed to be. You’ll also need to provide your routing and checking account numbers for:
- Direct deposits
- Electronic checks
- Military allotments
- Wire transfers
Where to Find Your Routing & Checking Account Numbers
Your personal checks include both our routing number and your account number, as shown on the Grow check example below.
Don’t have a Grow check? No worries.
Visit any Grow store and ask for a Direct Deposit Form. It lists both your routing number and checking account number.
Making a Loan Payment
When it comes to making payments, we try to make it as painless as possible to pay your loan every month. We have several different ways to pay, including convenient online options.
You have two ways to pay online by transferring funds from another bank or credit union.
- Grow Online Banking (Preferred payment method for any loan)
This is the simplest way to pay your loan. You can make one-time payments or set up automatic recurring payments in Grow Online Banking. Once you log in, select “Transfer/Payments” from the menu. If you’re not enrolled in Grow Online Banking yet, you can set up your account in just a few minutes.
- Debit Card or ACH (Available for auto, personal loans and HELOCs)
Note: ACH and debit card payments are not available for credit cards or most mortgages, except HELOCs.
We accept ACH payments with no additional fees or Mastercard® and Visa® debit cards with a convenience fee of $4.95. To get started with an online ACH or debit card payment, select Pay Now below.
Pay by Mail
You can also pay any Grow loan by check through the mail. Please remember to include your account number and Grow loan number on the check. (For credit card payments, please do not write your 16-digit credit card number on the check, which can cause a delay in processing the payment.)
