Dutch Bros. Coffee Ranked Highest in Customer Satisfaction by J.D. Power and Associates

Inaugural Report Finds Courteous and Knowledgeable Staff Biggest Driver of Customer Satisfaction

GRANTS PASS, OR--(Marketwire - May 7, 2012) - Dutch Bros. Coffee, a fun-loving and spirited drive-thru coffee company with nearly 180 locations across the West Coast, has announced that J.D. Power and Associates ranked the company highest in customer satisfaction compared to other coffee companies in its 2012 Specialty Coffee Retailer Satisfaction Report(SM).

"From the beginning our mission has been to serve our customers and community with love and respect -- all while keeping it fun," said Travis Boersma, president and co-founder of Dutch Bros. Coffee. "This recognition is a demonstration of that philosophy, and shows how much our amazing employees truly care about the people we serve."

The report was based on responses from more than 1,300 customers regarding their purchase of any product or beverage from any specialty coffee retailer.

The inaugural report found that a specialty coffee retailer's staff is more than twice as important to customers compared with the importance for the other factors that measure satisfaction. Customer service attributes such as courtesy, knowledge of merchandise, speed of checkout and availability contribute to the overall staff factor. Other factors contributing to overall satisfaction are merchandise, cost, sales/promotion and facility. For more information, visit www.jdpower.com.
