Dutch Bros. among 'Fastest Growing Coffee Chains'
Dutch Bros. Coffee was recently recognized on CNBC's list of "America's Fastest Growing Coffee Chains."
"It's awesome to be acknowledged among regional drive-through chains, like our own, as well as national - and international - coffee companies," said Dutch Bros. co-founder Travis Boersma. "Our growth is 100 percent attributable to our amazing employees and extremely passionate customers."
Dutch Bros. ended 2010 with 156 locations in seven western states, including two in Coeur d'Alene, and estimated sales of $78 million. To date, the company boasts 165-plus drive-through stores and is on track to add 25 more in 2012.
