#1 - Dutch Bros. Coffee

Dutch Bros Coffee

Dutch Bros Coffee was founded in 1992 by Dane and Travis Boersma: brothers of Dutch descent. After three generations in the dairy business, government regulations pressed the family to sell the cows. What felt devastating turned out to be a blessing in disguise.

The bros bought a double-head espresso machine, threw open the barn doors and started experimenting with just 100 pounds of beans and a rockin’ stereo. They set up a pushcart on the railroad tracks and started passing out samples to anyone who would brave the new brew, and, within a month, they knew they had something special.

“One of the most rewarding things in this change of occupation was going from smelling cow manure to smelling coffee,” said Dane. “You’d open the bag, and it was like heaven.”

Today, Dutch Bros Coffee is the country’s largest, privately held drive-thru coffee company, with over 290 locations in seven states and over 7,500 employees. But growth hasn’t taken the company away from its roots. Dutch Bros still gives away drinks — now over one million each year — to further the bros.’ mission of “spreading the Dutch Luv.”

The company donates over $2 million a year to its local communities and nonprofit organizations, including the Muscular Dystrophy Association, in honor of Dane, who passed away in 2009 after a four-year battle with Lou Gehrig’s disease.

With its loyal customer base dubbed the Dutch Mafia, Dutch Bros Coffee continues to grow, and, wherever it does, the love, donations and smiles grow also.

“GREAT group of employees! We love going here and seeing those who have become friends to us!”
