July 31, 2012 // Franchising.com // Hillsboro, Ore. – Wednesday, August 1, 2012, Dutch Bros. Coffee will be giving away FREE DRINKS ALL DAY, from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m., in honor of its grand opening at 22075 NW Imbrie Dr. in Hillsboro, Ore.

“We are so pumped to be bringing even more Dutch Luv to Hillsboro with this new Imbrie location,” say Hillsboro store owners Jason and Angela Albert. “The community has embraced the Dutch philosophy of ‘love all, serve all,’ and we are very proud to be able to give back to it.”
The Hillsboro Imbrie Street location will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Locally owned and operated by husband-and-wife team Jason and Angela Albert, the first Hillsboro Dutch Bros. opened on Jason’s birthday, April 4th, in the year 2004.
Prior to coming to Dutch Bros., Jason worked for a grocery chain in Grants Pass, Ore., for twelve years. He says, “Where I was working before, everyone was just a number. Here, nobody’s a number — they’re family.”
In 2011, Dutch Bros. Hillsboro/Cornelius gave back nearly $20 thousand to nonprofit organizations, including the Boys & Girls Clubs of Hillsboro and Cure JM, a nonprofit that seeks to find the cure for Juvenile Myositis, a rare autoimmune disease that affects approximately 17,000 children and adults.
Jason says, “Cure JM is near and dear to me. A local guy started coming in, and, after talking to him and getting to know him, I found out his kid has Juvenile Myositis…so I am constantly giving back to that organization.”
Jason and Angela now own and operate four Dutch Bros. locations — three in Hillsboro and one in Cornelius. “I am blown away by the growth of this company,” says Jason.
Jason and Angela employ 40 full- and part-time of employees, whom they consider one big, happy family.
