Ranks No. 73 on the 2012 Inc. Top 100 List of Fastest-Growing Food and Beverage Companies in the U.S.A. and Ranks No. 2547 on the 2012 Inc. Top 5,000 List of Fastest-Growing Companies

August 27, 2012 // // The Inc. 500/5,000 list ranks the most important segment of the economy – America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs. Taken as a whole, these companies represent the backbone of the U.S. economy. Café Yumm! is a five time honoree, having first been listed in 2008. The company’s most recent three year growth rate ending 2011 was 95% with 2011 revenue of $12.9 million.

Two other Oregon-based companies made the list of Top 100 Fastest-Growing Food and Beverage Companies. Sustainable Harvest is listed at #29 with a 292% growth rate on 2011 sales of $78.6 million. Bamboo Sushi is listed at #51 with a 173% growth rate on 2011 sales of $2.1 million.

“We are very proud to reach this milestone of being listed five years in a row,” says co- founder Mark Beauchamp. “It is most gratifying to both Mary Ann and me that so many people enjoy our food, our restaurants, and the way we approach business. We couldn’t succeed without our guests and our terrific employees who so happily serve our guests each and every day.”

Café Yumm! follows the Triple Bottom Line of business management which means the company balances profits with concerns for the environment, its Team Members, and its communities. Café Yumm! has received several awards for sustainable business practices including the 2011 Mayor’s Bold Steps Toward Sustainability Award.

Café Yumm! has built the first solar powered electric vehicle charging station at a restaurant in the country at 730 East Broadway in Eugene. Café Yumm! also has built the first Gold LEED for Retail certified restaurant in Oregon at 301 SW Morrison St. in Portland.
