This 17-year-old West Coast, Dutch-themed drive-through coffee concept opened a fourth Arizona site in Phoenix and another in Tigard, Oregon, recently. The chain interacts with customers through Facebook, which “creates a community in cyberspace” and is useful for promotions and “sustaining our culture of ‘love all, serve all,’” says Brian Maxwell, vice president of growth. Plans call for four or five new stores in existing markets.
