GRANTS PASS, Ore. - Dutch Bros. Coffee Raises Bucks-for-Kids

11/20/2014 -

Buck-for-Kids
GRANTS PASS, Ore. (Dec. 1, 2014)
—On Friday, Dec. 5, all 233 Dutch Bros. Coffee locations will take part in a company-wide event. All locations will donate at least a “buck” per drink or proceeds from the day to youth programs selected by local owner-operators. 

Since Dutch Bros. locations are locally owned and operated, owners choose the local organizations dear to their hearts that will benefit from funds raised. Organizations range from regional Boys & Girls Clubs to holiday toy collection programs. Last year resulted in over $176,900 raised for community youth organizations.

“Kids are awesome. They are our present and future,” says Dutch Bros. Coffee Co-Founder Travis Boersma, a father of four himself. “We recognize that there are so many amazing organizations that help kids, each in a special way. We want to support them as they strive to help kids enjoy each day, whether it be through coats, toys, school supplies or programs that help them grow and learn.”

Dutch Bros. Coffee gives back at least 1% of gross sales to the communities it serves, donation over $1 million every year to nonprofit organizations and causes, in an effort to live the philosophy of “Love all, Serve all.”

Proceeds from sales and donations collected at all nine Sacramento-area Dutch Bros. shops will support the families of the fallen officers. Donations will be made to Placer 10-35 and The Star 6 Foundation.

“We laughed and cried with people all day,” said Brian Place, Dutch Bros. Granite Bay owner. “We were blown away by the generosity of everyone. What a special show of love for the families of Danny Oliver and Michael Davis.”

“We are so thankful to have the opportunity to work with our neighboring Dutch Bros. Family, who jump in without hesitation,” said Heather Mauel, Dutch Bros Auburn/Rocklin owner. “Our crews were inspired by the community’s love for these families.”

 The community came out in droves. People came from as far away as Truckee and waited in long lines to show love and support the officers and their families. Donations alone accounted for over 50% of the total raised.

 “There are no words to describe how special the whole day was,” said Nikol Grubbs, Dutch Bros. NE Sacramento/Citrus Heights owner. “We are so blessed to live in such a caring and amazing community.”

“We have the families of Deputy Danny Oliver and Detective Michael Davis in our thoughts and hope they saw how much the community cares about them and respects the work done by law enforcement,” said Sean Provost, Dutch Bros. Woodland/Davis owner.

All 233 Dutch Bros. Coffee locations in seven states sold the “Be Aware” mug in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. For every mug sold, Dutch Bros. Coffee donated $5.

“I think it’s super impactful what Knight Cancer Institute has organized. We are fortunate enough to be able to participate in supporting research that will change future treatment of cancer,” said Travis Boersma, Co-Founder of Dutch Bros. Coffee.

The $1 billion Knight Cancer Challenge was launched in 2013 after Nike Co-founder Phil Knight and his wife, Penny, pledged $500 million for cancer research if OHSU raised an equal amount by February 2016. The $1 billion investment will allow the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute to hire top scientists and their teams, or about 200 to 300 researchers, to collaborate on improving methods to identify cancer at its earliest and most curable stage, and to move the most promising new detection methods and treatments from the laboratory to clinical trials as quickly as possible.

“We are deeply grateful to Dutch Bros., all of their customers and employees for supporting the Knight Cancer Challenge and the significant contribution their efforts will make in advancing breast cancer research,” said Lisa Coussens, Ph.D., associate director of basic research at the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute.  “These funds will help us pursue the most promising research more quickly and, ultimately, bring new hope to breast cancer patients.”

GRANTS PASS, Ore. - Dutch Bros. Coffee Donating Proceeds From Breast Cancer Awareness Mug to Knight

Dutch Bros. Coffee

GRANTS PASS, Ore. (Sept. 25, 2014) The month of October, National Breast Cancer Awareness month, Dutch Bros. Coffee will be selling “Be Aware” travel mugs and donating proceeds to OHSU’s Knight Cancer Institute.

Mugs cost $17 and include your Dutch Bros. drink of choice for free. For every mug sold, $5 will be donated while supplies last.

“We are super stoked to support the work of the Knight Cancer Institute,” said Travis Boersma, Co-Founder of Dutch Bros. Coffee. “My family, like so many, has been impacted by breast cancer. We are ecstatic about the progress and work of the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute.”

Oregon Health & Science University has revolutionized cancer treatment once and is poised to do it again by taking on the biggest unmet need in cancer treatment: finding smarter, foolproof ways to detect cancer early. OHSU’s Knight Cancer Institute has launched an unprecedented $1 billion effort to transform early detection and save countless lives.

The early detection initiative builds on Knight Cancer Institute Director Brian Druker, M.D.,’s pioneering research that changed the direction of cancer treatment from toxic, non-specific chemotherapies to highly targeted drugs that zero in on cancer without harming healthy cells. He spearheaded this paradigm shift by contributing to the development of Gleevec®, a targeted treatment for chronic myeloid leukemia, turning a previously lethal cancer into a manageable disease.

The $1 billion Knight Cancer Challenge was launched in 2013 after Nike Co-founder Phil Knight and his wife, Penny, pledged $500 million for cancer research if OHSU raised an equal amount by February 2016. The $1 billion investment will allow the Knight Cancer Institute to hire 20 to 30 top scientists and their teams to collaborate on improving methods to identify cancer at its earliest and most curable stage, and to move the most promising new detection methods and treatments from the laboratory to clinical trials as quickly as possible.

COOS BAY, Ore. - Tea For Trent

9/18/2014 -

COOS BAY, Ore. (September 11, 2014)- Dutch Bros. Coffee of Coos Bay, Oregon is donating $1 from every Iced Tea sold on Friday September 26 from 5 a.m. – 11 p.m. All proceeds will help offset any medical expenses for Trent Messerle.

Trent Messerle, twenty-six, was first diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme in 2011. Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) is classified as a grade IV astrocytoma, simply referred to as a rapidly growing brain tumor.

“I’m grateful for the opportunity to help such an inspiring family,” says Brad Young, Dutch Bros. Coos Bay owner. “We hope to help as Trent and his family look to a new treatment.”

For Trent and his parents, Betsy and Fred Messerle, this has been a long road, but they continue to keep their faith. Trent has recently undergone 18 treatments of Radiation. As a result, the tumors have shrunk in size, which is a positive indicator. Every three months Trent will have an MRI to track progress. 

Trent has lost some of his eyesight, as well as coordination on his right side. “He’s trying so hard to come back,” Betsy says with hope. “His will is strong.”

“I wish everybody had the chance to meet Trent,” said Betsy. “Not because I’m his mom, but because I’m simply in awe of his strength.”

“We are always inspired by someone working so hard to recover and move forward,” said Brad. “Trent is an inspiration.”

MERIDIAN, Idaho (July 22, 2014) — Dutch Bros. Coffee of Meridian is donating $800 a month, from July to December, to C.A.T.C.H. (Charitable Assistance to Community’s Homeless), a non-profit organization that assists families with children who are currently homeless.

“We are so excited to partner with C.A.T.C.H. and provide a helping hand to these families in need,” said Dutch Bros. Meridian’s Community Relations Specialist, Donovan Knapp.

C.A.T.C.H works to break the cycle of homelessness and give families a fresh start. The program is unique in that clients are housed first, then provided intensive case management as the family stabilizes after the homeless episode. 

Currently, federal sources help pay the first four months rent per family and the Dutch Bros. contribution will help pay for the remaining two months. 

“We are pleased to help support families and sustain their stable living environment,” said Knapp. 

Since launching the program in 2012, CATCH has helped over 12 families. Currently, the Meridian case manager supports six families with hopes of doubling that number by 2015.

“Dutch Bros. is such a great example of the generous, family-oriented culture of Meridian, and what a lasting impact can be had when businesses give back,” said Greg Morris, Executive Director of C.A.T.C.H.  “Thank you, Dutch Bros."

SPOKANE, Wash. - Dutch Bros. Coffee ♥ Kidneys

7/18/2014 -

Anna and Andrew CopleySPOKANE, Wash. (July, 17, 2014) – On Wednesday, July 23, from 5:00 a.m. to 10 p.m., Dutch Bros. Coffee locations in Spokane will be donating $1 of every drink sold to COTA (Children’s Organ Transplant Association) in honor of transplant patients like local teen, Anna Copley.

To help raise funds, Dutch Bros. will be offering all 16-oz. drinks for $2, including specialty coffee, smoothies, freezes and our private-label energy drink, Dutch Bros. Blue Rebel.

Local owners, Kevin and Kerry Parker, work with their management team every summer to choose a worthy recipient or cause to support. This year they received many nominations via Facebook and through their stands, but it was Anna Copley’s story that stood out.

“We had several nominations for Anna,” said Kevin. “The team was moved by her story and the fact that this would have a double impact on the family since her brother was donating his kidney.”

Soon after her birth, Anna contracted RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus). Her condition worsened and she was admitted to the Deaconess Hospital Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, where later that night she almost died. Thanks to her outstanding doctors and nurses - and a lot of prayer - she made it through, but with lasting impact on her kidneys.

When Anna reached the 4th grade, she was diagnosed with stage 4 Chronic Kidney Failure. It slowly progressed for the next several years, and in 2013 she was at the edge of stage 5.  She has been on dialysis since this February and is awaiting a transplant on August 6th.

Anna is the only daughter of John and Rebecca Copley and has three older brothers: Andrew 22, Matthew 19, and Luke 16.  “I’m really close to all of my brothers,” said Anna.

“Since she was in the 4th grade, her older brother, Andrew, has been telling her that he was going to be the one to give her a kidney and he just knew they were a match,” said Rebecca Copley.

As it turned out, Andrew was right, and he will be donating a kidney to Anna. He just got married three weeks ago, which also gave Anna a sister.

“I don’t know how to say thank you to him, but will try each day,” said Anna.

The Copley’s received a call from Dutch Bros. Spokane owner Kevin Parker. “It came while we were planning a neighborhood garage sale to raise funds,” said Rebecca Copley. “I was already feeling overwhelmed by the support and help we were receiving – I nearly cried, it’s humbling to see so many people helping.”

When asked if she’s looking forward to life after the transplant Anna beautifully summed up her feelings, “Oh yeah!”

Anna’s family has asked for assistance from the Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA), a national charity based in Bloomington, Indiana.  COTA is dedicated to organizing and guiding communities in raising funds for transplant-related expenses.  COTA’s services are completely free of charge, and 100% of funds generated by COTA community fundraising campaigns are available for transplant-related expenses.  For more information, visit www.COTAforAnnaRC.com.

It’s an absolute mind blow,” said Travis Boersma, Dane’s brother and Dutch Bros. Coffee Co-Founder. “I’m amazed and moved by everyone who works so hard in the company and super thankful for everyone who contributed to this important day.”


All 221 Dutch Bros. Coffee locations in seven states donated proceeds to MDA, the world leader in fighting Lou Gehrig’s disease, also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The donation surpassed last year’s donation by over $81,000, bringing the company’s total to over $1.26 million.


“There was so much love on for Dane and the thousands of families living with ALS,”says MDA Area Director Arlene Wedsted. “Each cup of coffee directly benefits MDA’s mission to save and improve lives for people living with ALS by providing vital funds needed to help find treatments and cures.”


“I believe through concentrated efforts over time we will find a cause and a cure for Lou Gerhig’s Disease,” said Travis Boersma. “In the meantime, people who suffer with this illness will also receive support and services needed.”


We cannot thank Dutch Bros, their amazing employees and generous customers enough for their continued dedication and partnership to fighting ALS,” said MDA Area Director Arlene Wedsted.

ALS is a disease that affects the parts of the nervous system that control voluntary muscle movement.  There is no cure for ALS, and most people with ALS die within three to five years. To learn more about the MDA and ALS, visit mda.org.

Coffee locations in seven states will donate proceeds to the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), the world leader in fighting Lou Gehrig’s disease, also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

The event kicks off ALS Awareness Month and is held annually in honor of company co-founder, Dane Boersma, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2005 and passed away in late 2009.

Dane’s memory continues to inspire everyone within the company to give their all every day. On Drink One for Dane Day, all employees and loved ones proudly wear and proclaim the event slogan, “Drink One for Dane.”


“We are eternal optimists and believe one day there will be a cure for ALS,” said Travis Boersma, Dane’s brother and Dutch Bros. Coffee Co-Founder. “The services provided to families facing this disease are so vital, and we are pleased to support those families.”

Last year, Dutch Bros. contributed a record-breaking $271,500 to MDA for research and family services funding. Since becoming involved with MDA in 2007 Dutch Bros. has donated over $896,500.


MDA is immensely grateful to have Dutch Bros as a partner in helping fund research for ALS and providing services for those served by MDA,” said MDA Area Director Arlene Wedsted.


ALS is a disease that affects the parts of the nervous system that control voluntary muscle movement.  There is no cure for ALS, and most people with ALS die within three to five years. To learn more about the MDA and ALS, visit mda.org.


Arlene continued, “During the annual ‘Drink one for Dane’ campaign, to see the outpouring of love and support for Dane, and the thousands of others living with ALS, is truly special and we thank everyone who visits Dutch Bros. on May 2nd.”

From her neighborhood welcoming her home by lining the streets, to California Highway Patrol rallying for her, and to all who participated in Dutch Bros’. “Shake it For Brooke,” she has been lifted by the wonderful outpour of love from so many people.

All 215 Dutch Bros. Coffee locations participated, offering customers drink specials in exchange for minimum canned food contributions.

Dutch Bros. franchisees everywhere reported their highest totals ever, a testament to the goodness of Dutch Bros. customers and communities.

“It’s amazing when people get together in a concentrated effort," said Dutch Bros. Coffee co-founder Travis Boersma. "The impact that we can have in raising over 233,000 pounds of food is extraordinary.”

“This is a huge food drive for us and it could not come at a better time of year,” said Sam Engle of Josephine County Food Bank.  “Around February, our shelves always begin to empty as we distribute the last of the holiday season food. Then, just as the last cans of chili and the last boxes of granola bars are being loaded out of the warehouse – along comes the Dutch Luv Day food drive.”

“We are blown away by the response to Dutch Luv Day. Our customers are beyond generous and stuffed the food bank shelves,” said local Sacramento area owner Nikol Grubbs.

That same tune of gratitude rang throughout the 107 cities where Dutch Bros. Coffee is located, with local owner-operators everywhere taking joy in the opportunity to team up with customers to help feed hungry friends and neighbors.

CHICO, Calif. (March 5, 2013) — On Thursday, March 13, Dutch Bros. Coffee in Chico will celebrate World Kidney Day and sell 16 oz. drinks for $1 with all proceeds benefitting the National Kidney Foundation.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Dutch Bros. Coffee Partnering with “Socks from the Heart to the Homeless”

Download hi-res photo 

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Nov. 13, 2013) — On Thursday, Nov. 14, Dutch Bros. Coffee locations in Citrus Heights, Fair Oaks and Sacramento are partnering with “Socks from the Heart to the Homeless” to help raise clothing for those in need.

To encourage participation, Dutch Bros. locations will offer customers an incentive of nine stamps on their loyalty card, one card per person, to anyone who brings in a new pair of socks, undergarment or t-shirt, thus allowing them to get a free drink with purchase on their next visit.

"We are so inspired by Matthew, a 10-year- old boy who created ‘Socks from the Heart to the Homeless,’” said local owner-operator Nikol Grubbs. “Let's help this young man ignite a wave of compassion for those who are less fortunate.” 

“Socks from the Heart to the Homeless” was founded in 2011 by Matthew, now 10 years old.

As a very young boy, Matthew’s parents saw his compassion for serving others. After helping serve the needy at a Thanksgiving dinner, they saw his heart break. Matthew could not understand how people could go without food, clothing and shelter. It was not soon after, that the first sock drive occurred, collecting nearly 3,000 items and surpassing Matthew’s exact goal of 1,512. 

“We love that Dutch Bros. has made the commitment to support Matthew in his quest to support those less fortunate,” said Matthew’s mother, Luz Johnson. “We are beyond words and so thankful for their help.”

Visit the “Socks from the Heart to the Homeless” Facebook page to learn more.

Dutch Bros. Sacramento is locally owned and operated by Steve and Nikol Grubbs and consists of three locations: 5289 Auburn Blvd. in Sacramento, 7445 Madison Ave. in Citrus Heights and 8552 Madison Ave. in Fair Oaks. They employ 45 upbeat baristas.

Kennewick, WASH. - Dutch Bros. Coffee Raises $29,137 for Cassidy’s Recovery

7/25/2013 -

KENNEWICK, Wash. (July 25, 2013) —Dutch Bros. Coffee Kennewick and community members banded together yesterday to raise $29,137 for Cassidy Almquist’s recovery.

Dutch Bros. donated all proceeds that day, resulting in $19,591 raised, and the community overwhelmed donation jars with an additional $9,546.

“Words cannot express our heart of thankfulness for what Dutch Bros. has done!” said Cassidy’s father Mark Almquist. 

Cassidy was demonstrating a pendulum swing at a church camp in Eastern Oregon when the harness snapped, dropping her 45-50 feet to the ground. The accident caused a crushed vertebra, resulting in paralysis from the waist down, and a broken leg, pelvis and elbow. She also has a badly severed tongue.

“Yesterday was by far the most enjoyable day I’ve ever had in Dutch Bros., beyond our grand opening and beyond anything we’ve ever done,” said local owner-operator Nate Frary. “There was just a lot to it that really isn’t explainable. It really turned out beyond our wildest imagination.”

Donation days like these are standard practice for local owner-operators Nate and Krisanna Frary, who own three locations in Kennewick.

Lane County, Ore. – On Wednesday, July 24, all 15 Dutch Bros. Coffee locations in the Eugene-Springfield area will offer any drink for just $2 and donate all dollars raised to the Lane County Chapter of American Cancer Society (ACS).

Last year, Dutch Bros. raised $42,519 in a single day. “This year, we are trying to raise $100,000!” say Jonah and Brittany Boersma, a husband-and-wife team that owns seven of the 15 locations in the Eugene area.

 Chris Stewart, owner of the other eight area Dutch Bros., says, “It feels great to live in a community that supports a wonderful organization like the American Cancer Society Relay for Life.”

All drinks will be just $2, including smoothies, freezes, energy drinks and specialty coffee.

In addition, Dutch Bros. Coffee will serve at the Eugene/Springfield Relay for Life event taking place July 26-27 at Willamette High School. At the event, drinks will be full menu price and, again, all money raised will go directly to the local chapter of ACS.

Kennewick, Wash. - Dutch Bros. Coffee Donating All Proceeds to 17-Year-Old Seriously Injured By Fall

7/22/2013 -

Dutch Bros. DonationsDownload hi-res photo

Kennewick, Wash. (July 22, 2013) — On Wednesday, July 24, all three Dutch Bros. Coffee locations in Kennewick will donate all of the day’s proceeds to helping the family of 17-year-old Cassidy Almquist pay for expenses resulting from a swing accident that occurred on July 15.

Cassidy was demonstrating a pendulum swing at a church camp in Eastern Oregon when the harness snapped, dropping her 45-50 feet to the ground. The accident caused a crushed vertebra, resulting in paralysis from the waist down, and a broken leg, pelvis and elbow. She also has a badly severed tongue.

As of July 21, dad Mark Almquist reports that Cassidy still has no feeling from the waist down, but he and wife Kari have great hope that she can fully recover. “We’re still trusting there’s a potential for healing,” said Mark. “It’s possible. We have hope.”

Dutch Bros. Kennewick owner-operators Nate and Krisanna Frary learned about the accident from baristas who have become friends with Cassidy after seeing her come through the stand regularly. “It touched all of our hearts, and we wanted to help her out,” said Nate.

“It’s been a blessing to have so many people come behind us and support her, and she truly is the Dutch Bros. queen,” said Mark. “She goes there every day. They know her smiling face, always happy.”

Cassidy will turn 18 on Aug. 16 and will be a senior this year at Southridge High School. “She sings like an angel, putting the angels to shame I would say,” says Mark. He says she has a servant heart and went to camp to help with the music program, do dishes and whatever else needed to be done.

Mark described the swing as an aircraft cable stretched between two tall trees with a harness in the middle. A rope on the back of the harness was connected to a third point behind and pulled Cassidy upward and back. When Cassidy pulled the quick release, rather than swinging forward like a pendulum, she dropped straight down, landing in the fetal position on the ground.

Cassidy was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident and, thankfully, didn’t suffer any brain damage. She was initially flown to Richland and currently is being treated in Seattle.

“She could so easily have died. We praise the Lord that we have a daughter to care for and nurse back to health,” says Mark, who asks that the community pray for Cassidy’s full recovery.

Dutch Bros. Kennewick stands are located at 4305 W. Clearwater Ave., 731 N. Columbia Center Blvd., and 3 W. Columbia Dr. There will also be jars available for customer donations.

If you can’t make it by a Dutch Bros. on Wednesday, you can also support the family by making a donation to “DA Cassidy Almquist” at Sterling Bank at 138 Vista Way in Kennewick.

To send the family words of encouragement and to follow Cassidy’s progress, visit www.facebook.com/PrayingForCassidy.

Grants Pass, Ore. - Dutch Bros. Coffee Donating Father’s Day Proceeds to 8-Year-Old Iron Man

6/11/2013 - Dutch Bros. Coffee DonationsDownload hi-res photo

GRANTS PASS, Ore. (June 11, 2013) — For Father’s Day this year, Dutch Bros. Coffee locations in Grants Pass and Cave Junction will donate all proceeds to enzyme treatments for eight-year-old J.T. Davis, who suffers the rare Gaucher’s disease.

J.T. was diagnosed in March 2013. His mom, Kim Davis, describes the moment she and husband Jameson found out. “When we got the phone call, [the doctor] said, ‘You guys aren’t driving, are you?’ That’s when I knew something bad was coming.” 

Gaucher’s disease is a genetic blood disorder, only experienced by 1 in 50,000 people, where blood cells that normally break down and recycle waste aren’t doing their job due to the lack of a certain enzyme.

As a result, J.T.’s spleen is enlarged to 11 inches, causing constant nausea and pain from the shift of his organs and a pinched renal nerve. A normal spleen is about the size of a person’s fist.

The disease has no cure but is treatable with costly enzyme treatments, which must be infused via a medi-port every two weeks and will cost $186K annually. Insurance will pay a portion of the cost, but J.T.’s family will still be responsible for a large amount.

For the infusions, J.T. has a medi-port permanently embedded in his chest. “He calls it his ‘Iron Man port,’” says dad Jameson, who is a maintenance technician for Dutch Bros. “The fact that he thinks he’s Iron Man is more positive than focusing on being sick.”

To encourage customers to come out on Sunday, Dutch Bros. will also give anyone who buys a large drink a loyalty card filled with nine of the ten required stamps, so they can enjoy any free drink on a future visit.

“It really shows the whole culture of Dutch Bros., the family environment,” says Kim. “Just knowing that you have more than your immediate family out there and that it’s okay to lean on others at times…We’re so lucky and blessed to be given this opportunity.”

Dutch Bros. Coffee locations in Grants Pass and Cave Junction are owned by Co-Founder Travis Boersma. The company gives over $1 million annually to local causes and non-profit organizations.

Grants Pass, Ore. (May 16, 2013) — Dutch Bros. Coffee and the communities it serves banded together on May 3 to “Drink One for Dane,” raising a record-breaking $271,579 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) in honor of late company co-founder Dane Boersma.
 
Surpassing last year’s donation total by nearly $100K, the amount will be distributed to local MDA chapters where Dutch Bros. Coffee stands are located. Dutch Bros. Coffee has donated $896,581 to MDA since becoming involved in 2007.
 
“The Muscular Dystrophy Association is extremely grateful to Dutch Bros. and all their customers who came out to ‘Drink One for Dane’ and for the thousands of families living with ALS,” says MDA Executive Vice President and Chief Business Development Officer Kevin Moran. “Dutch Bros. Coffee’s partnership with MDA has helped provide invaluable local services for those living with ALS and has had a tremendous impact on research to find treatments and, eventually, a cure for ALS.”
 
Travis Boersma, surviving company co-founder and brother to Dane, says, “I’m touched that, every year, our customers bring even more support and love for an organization that means so much to me and affected families everywhere.”
 
All 198 Dutch Bros. Coffee locations in seven states donated proceeds that day, and kindhearted customers overwhelmed donation jars.

Grants Pass, Ore. (Apr. 10, 2013) -- For the second consecutive year, Dutch Bros. Coffee has been ranked by J.D. Power and Associates as highest in customer satisfaction in its Specialty Coffee Retailer Satisfaction Report.

Dutch Bros. received 824 points out of a possible 1000, with runners up including, from highest to lowest scoring: Seattle’s Best Coffee, Starbucks Coffee, Caribou Coffee, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Tully’s Coffee and Peet’s Coffee & Tea.

Released on Apr. 4, the report found that friendly and knowledgeable staff continues to be the most important factor in pleasing customers.

“Our customers are the best, man, and so are our bro-istas,” says company co-founder Travis Boersma. “They rip and they rock, and it’s all about the people.”

Other factors in customer satisfaction include merchandise, cost, facility and promotions.

Bend, Ore. - Over $4,300 Raised for Avrey’s Leukemia Treatment

3/13/2013 - Bend, Ore. (Mar. 13, 2013) — On Friday, Mar. 8, the community banded together to raise over $4,300 for a potentially life-saving leukemia treatment for nine-year-old Avrey Walker.

Funds were raised by collaboration between Redmond Dutch Bros. Coffee locations, owned by Bill and Carol Smith, and droves of caring community members.

Dutch Bros. donated all proceeds that day, resulting in $2,282 raised, and the community overwhelmed donation jars with an additional $2,084.

Dutch Bros. Central Oregon would like to thank all the kindhearted people who came out on Friday to support the Walker family in their time of need. Funds will aid the family with medical costs, not covered by insurance, and expenses from traveling to Philadelphia for the procedure.

Avrey was diagnosed with leukemia in 2007 and is suffering her third bout with the disease after five years of chemotherapy. Avrey will be the 6th or 7th person to ever receive this experimental treatment, which has eliminated all traces of cancer in some of the other patients. To learn more about the procedure, visit http://vimeo.com/54668275.

Boise, Idaho (Feb. 27, 2013)
– On Friday, Mar. 8, Dutch Bros. Coffee locations in Boise and Garden City will donate all proceeds toward helping nine-year-old Avrey Walker’s family cover the cost of an experimental, potentially life-saving leukemia treatment.

Niece to Boise Dutch Bros. owners Libby and Brian Wight, Avrey is suffering her third bout with the deadly disease.
After seeing Avrey go through five hard years of chemotherapy, parents Aaron and Christal Walker decided to try this experimental treatment that has only been tried on five other patients previously.

However, because the procedure is still in phase one clinical trials, insurance will not cover it, and it will cost the family approximately $300K.

“You just want your kid to survive,” says dad Aaron. “This treatment is the biggest medical break-through in cancer history right now,” he says, with hope, also advising that several patients who received this treatment were cured.

“The desperation of my brother’s family was so apparent, I felt compelled to do what I could to help out,” says Libby, who wants the event to generate both financial and moral support. “The community surrounding the family builds hope and helps them make it through, because every day is a struggle.”

At the end of January 2013, Avrey underwent the first stage of the procedure in Philadelphia. Doctors collected Avrey’s own T cells and will reengineer them by infecting them with a disabled HIV virus that can’t cause disease anymore but will reprogram the immune system to attack leukemia cells. To learn more about the procedure, visit http://vimeo.com/54668275.

Dad Aaron says the family just found out last week that Avrey has been approved for the second phase of the treatment, which will take place at the end of March.

Avrey was first diagnosed with leukemia in 2007, at just four years old.

“Avrey’s been fighting this over half her life, and we’re ready to have her healthy — that’s for sure,” says Aaron.

If you can’t make it by a Dutch Bros. on the 8th, you can also support the Walker family in a number of other ways:

*At Sterling Bank, account number 989250555.

Redmond, Ore. (Feb. 27, 2013) – On Friday, Mar. 8, Dutch Bros. Coffee locations in Redmond will donate all proceeds toward helping nine-year-old Avrey Walker’s family cover the cost of an experimental, potentially life-saving leukemia treatment.

A Redmond local and niece to Boise Dutch Bros. owners Libby and Brian Wight, Avrey is suffering her third bout with the deadly disease.

Central Oregon Dutch Bros. owners Bill and Carol Smith wanted to help this little girl who is not only part of their Central Oregon community, but also part of their Dutch Bros. Coffee family.

“We've known the Walkers through the most recent years of this battle, and, after hearing about the recent relapse, we were heartbroken for them and knew we had to help out,” says Dutch Bros. Central Oregon Marketing Director Kaelyn Costa, who met the Walkers about four years ago when she was managing one of the Redmond stands.

After seeing Avrey go through five hard years of chemotherapy, parents Aaron and Christal Walker decided to try this experimental treatment that has only been tried on five other patients previously.

However, because the procedure is still in phase one clinical trials, insurance will not cover it, and it will cost the family approximately $300K.

All 195 Dutch Bros. Coffee locations participated, offering customers drink specials in exchange for minimum canned food contributions.

Dutch Bros. franchisees everywhere reported their highest totals ever, a testament to the goodness of Dutch Bros. customers and communities.

“My community really rallied together, and we raised 2,300 pounds of food for the Evergreen Pantry Project!” reported East Vancouver franchisee Jessica Chudek. “The people running this project were in tears about how many students' families would benefit from this food drive.”

Sharre Whitson of the Redding Good News Rescue Mission said, “This is one of the largest food drives we have ever had by a business. Dutch Bros. Redding collected 5,980 pounds of food!”

“Central Oregon collected 7,020 pounds of canned food to benefit NeighborImpact — Our best year to date!” said Kaelyn Costa, Dutch Bros. Central Oregon Marketing Manager.

Carrie Wall, franchisee for Lacey, Wash., says, “It was a landslide blow-out this year! We are so completely stoked on our poundage!  Last year we did around 700 pounds, and this year we did 1,925! Words can’t express how completely grateful I am for our amazing community.”

That same tune of gratitude rang throughout the 94 cities where Dutch Bros. Coffee is located, with local owner-operators everywhere taking joy in the opportunity to team up with customers to help feed hungry friends and neighbors.

Now, in addition to mourning Gabi’s loss, the Garcias are faced with $100K in medical bills. “This family needs help now,” says Regional Manager Annie May. “John and Sara have always spread joy and love to all of our baristas, so we wanted to do something right away.”

Auburn, Calif. (Jan. 14, 2013) – On Friday, Jan. 18, the Auburn Dutch Bros. Coffee location will donate all proceeds toward helping beloved regular customer Tami Cooke cover medical expenses from a long battle with kidney and lung cancers.

Friday, Jan. 18, 2013
5 a.m. to 11 p.m.
3995 Grass Valley Hwy., Auburn
ALL PROCEEDS DONATED


“Tami’s a very strong woman and an encouragement to us all,” says local owner-operator Jeremy Mauel. “She’s been a regular for three years now, and all of us have made a real connection with her.”

Doctors diagnosed Tami with kidney cancer in May 2011 and removed the cancerous area as part of her treatment. Then, in June 2012, Tami learned that the cancer had reappeared in her left lung.

She underwent radiation and partial removal of the left lung, only to learn soon after that another cancerous module had been discovered on her right lung.

“With the cancer reemerging, it has been very rough for her and her family, and we just want to encourage them through this and help them out,” says Jeremy.

Tami’s husband Sean has also been a regular since the stand first opened in 2009. Now, Dutch Bros. is his stop on the way to many doctor and hospital visits. 

Jeremy and his crew ask that you come out on Friday and support the cause with your daily cup. They will also have jars available for additional customer donations.

Tami and Sean have five children, one grandchild and another grandchild on the way.

Beaverton, Ore. - Dutch Bros. Coffee Donating 30% of Sales to Beaverton Man's Bone Marrow Transplant

12/10/2012 - Luis Lopez** Download Photo of Luis Lopez **

Beaverton, Ore. (Dec. 10, 2012) – On Monday, Dec. 17, your daily cup of joe can help save a life.

All that day, from 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., the Beaverton Dutch Bros. Coffee stand at 8940 SW Hall Blvd. will donate 30% of gross sales to help beloved regular customer and Beaverton resident Luis Lopez raise money to pay for a much-needed bone marrow transplant.

Luis was diagnosed with leukemia about one year ago, and, where other methods of treatment have failed, a costly bone marrow transplant may save his life.

“When Luis got sick about a year ago, we were really concerned,” say local owner-operators Tina Thompson and Mike Gonzales. “He’s been coming to our stand since we opened four years ago, and we’ve always joked that we’re family. They’re good people who work really hard, and we want to help.”

Without health insurance, the transplant will cost about $500K, not including the hospital stay or post-operative care.

Please come out on Dec. 17 and support a local family in need. We will also have jars available for additional donations to the cause.

Donations may also be made to the “Luis Lopez Bone Marrow Fundraiser” at any U.S. Bank.

Dutch Bros. Coffee Recognized for Community Giving by Oregon Bankers Association

12/07/2012 - Oregon Bankers Association Award Grants Pass, Ore. (Dec. 7, 2012) — On Monday, Dec. 3, the Oregon Bankers Association recognized Dutch Bros. Coffee with its annual “Community Applause Award,” which acknowledges outstanding community service and philanthropy.

Company co-founder Travis Boersma was there to receive the award and said, “Thank you so much for this honor. Our communities are so important to us, and we feel that being locally owned and operated is super important to connecting on an intimate level with our communities."

Banks throughout Oregon nominate their business customers and present awards to winners in two categories, “less than 50 employees” and “50 or more employees.”

PremierWest Bank nominated Dutch Bros. Coffee, which, with approximately 500 full-time employees based in Oregon and SW Washington, took top honors in the “50 or more” category.

PremierWest Executive Vice President Ken Wells said, “It’s hard to imagine an Oregon business more deserving of this award…Community support is not only part of Dutch Bros.’ mission; it’s ingrained in their DNA.”

Dutch Bros. Coffee is the country’s largest, privately held drive-thru coffee company, with nearly 200 locations in seven states. The company donates over $1 million a year to nonprofit organizations and local causes.

It’s Dutch Bros. Coffee’s annual Buck-4-Kids Day, which last year resulted in $93K raised for community youth organizations.

**Download Hi-Res Photo #2**

Vancouver, Wash. (Nov. 16, 2012) — On Tuesday, Nov. 20, Vancouver Dutch Bros. stands will be donating 50% of proceeds to aid the family of Tyler Burton, a 21-year-old Vancouver native who is still in critical condition after an Oct. 29 assault caused him to hit his head on concrete in Chico, Calif.

All three locations in Vancouver are participating:
5700 NE 4th Plain Blvd., 5 a.m. to 10 p.m.
2610 NE 138th Ave., 5 a.m. to 10 p.m.
10417 SE Mill Plain Blvd., 24 hours

Dutch Bros. baristas who know and care for Tyler asked Vancouver owners to join the cause. 

“I see how this has affected a couple of our employees who are close to Tyler, and I wanted to help,” says Kenny Stromer, owner of two locations west of Highway 205.
Praying for Tyler Burton t-shirtJessica Chudek, owner of the location east of 205, says “We just want to do what we can to make things a little easier on his family in this hard time.”

Dutch Bros. barista Sabrina Mendez knows Tyler and encourages the community to come support a very caring individual:

“Tyler has always been one of the sweetest, most welcoming, open and uplifting guys that not only I, but many others, have ever met. For something like this to happen to someone so great is tragic.”

Tyler graduated from Mountain View High School in 2010.

Friends of Tyler are also selling t-shirts, pictured above, to help pay for medical bills.

Shasta County, Calif. (Nov. 8, 2012) -- On Nov. 7, the community brought in 12 thousand pounds of canned food to Redding-area Dutch Bros. locations, where owners Chris and Erin Resner were offering any drink on the menu for free in exchange for a four-can contribution to help families in need.

Corvallis, Ore. (Nov. 7, 2012) — On Saturday, Nov. 10, you can help in the fight against cancer in a very simple, local way.

All that day, from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m., the Dutch Bros. coffeehouse at the Oregon State University campus will be donating $1 from every drink sold to help Matt Fettig, an OSU junior who had to put his studies on hold when he learned in August that he has leukemia.

Matt's fraternity brother Ashton Smith works for Dutch Bros. Corvallis and asked owner Bob Lengwin to join the cause. Bob says, "It was something he felt very strongly about, and I wanted to help out."

Ashton says, "We want to raise money to donate to Matt's family, because they have a lot of medical bills and three kids in college."

Matt's brothers by birth, Blair and Eric, also attend OSU and are part of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity that is spearheading fundraising efforts for Matt.

Phi Delta Theta chooses a philanthropic project every term. "We decided to do one for Matt, because he's our brother," says Ashton. "I could tell it meant a lot to him deep down, when he realized that every single person has his back on this."

Phi Delta Theta is selling wrist bands that will be available at the Dutch Bros. OSU coffeehouse on Saturday. They cost $2 and are orange, a color not only chosen to reflect school spirit but because it is the official representative color for leukemia support. The bands, seen all around campus, read, "For the Courageous Fight for Matt."

Matt will be undergoing a bone marrow transplant from his brother Eric, a perfect match, during the winter break from OSU.

Please come out on Nov. 10 and join Dutch Bros., Phi Delta Theta and the Fettig family in the courageous fight for Matt.

Lacey, Wash. - Dutch Bros. Raising Funds for Hurricane Sandy Victims

11/05/2012 - Lacey, Wash. (November 5, 2012) -- On Tuesday, Nov. 13, Dutch Bros. Coffee of Lacey will be donating all net proceeds to aid victims of Hurricane Sandy, the late October storm that killed at least 110 people and caused billions of dollars in damage.

Dutch Bros. Lacey is located at 7225 Martin Way East and is open from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Tuesday. There will also be a jar available for additional donations to the cause.

"Where do you even begin to pick up the pieces?" contemplated Dutch Bros. Lacey owners Carrie and Don Wall. "We're too far away to get directly involved, but we can help. We can make an impact."

Hurricane Sandy primarily affected residents on the East Coast, particularly in New Jersey and New York City.

Nov. 13 is also Dutch Bros. Lacey's third birthday, which Carrie and Don choose to celebrate by doing what they love most: giving back. In 2011, Dutch Bros. Lacey gave approximately $6,500 to nonprofit organizations and local causes.

Redding, Calif. - Dutch Bros. Raises Funds for CASA of Shasta County

10/31/2012 - Redding, Calif. (October 31, 2012) -- This Friday, Nov. 2, Dutch Bros. locations in Redding and Palo Cedro will be donating $1 from every drink sold to Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Shasta County.

Dutch Bros. Redding co-owner Erin Resner has volunteered as an advocate for the past two-and-a-half years. She explains the program and why it is so beneficial to children who have been removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect:

"Once a kid is appointed a CASA, that one person stays with the kid the entire time they are in the system, so the ability to have an impact on a child's life is huge...especially when some of them have never had that person who cares about them and makes them their full focus."

She explains that while a social worker may have 25 cases, a CASA only has one child assigned to him or her at a time. The CASA spends 8-10 hours with the child each month and often takes him or her to do activities, such as play at the park or attend a school event. They attend parent-teacher conferences, take them to appointments and write recommendations for the courts.

All advocates are volunteers and, typically, they pay for any activity costs out-of-pocket, so some of the funds raised will go toward helping offset those expenses.

Funds will also go toward providing more opportunities for children in the system to do things that children from stable homes naturally enjoy, such as playing sports and going to Prom.

All seven Redding-area Dutch Bros. will be participating from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. To find the one nearest you, visit www.dutchbros.com/locations. There will also be jars available at the stands for additional donations to CASA.

Kerry said, “Cat is such a cool person. She came by quite a few times to thank the baristas and say ‘thank you’ to the customers…she’s going to do great things in the future.”

Funds were raised by selling 16-oz. drinks for $2 and donating $1 of each sale to Cure for Cat, with a match on proceeds from San Francisco Giants pitcher Jeremy Affeldt.
