When Jim Thompson committed to open Dutch Bros. Coffee shops throughout the Valley in 2006, he did not foresee the economic crisis that was to follow.
â€œWe didnâ€™t know there was going to be a recession,â€ the franchisee for the greater Phoenix area said, â€œbut we had spent so darn much money in the processâ€¦ our decision was to go ahead with it.â€
But fears of the lagging economy affecting this discretionary-income-driven business seem distant and Thompson looks forward to the future.
A drive-thru, a small patio and a royal blue roof make Dutch Bros. hard to miss on the Northwest corner of North Gilbert and East McKellips roads in Mesa.
Thompson opened this store on Aug. 28, making it the fifth Arizona Dutch Bros. to open in 10 months, and gave away 2,500 free drinks that day. It was â€œthe biggest grand openingâ€ out of all Valley locations, said Thompson.
The next day, the Mesa store recorded almost $2,000 in sales, which made it â€œthe highest dollar salesâ€ of all Arizona Dutch Bros. to date, according to Thompson. â€œItâ€™s like a community (in Mesa),â€ he said. â€œThe people were actually waiting for us to be there.â€
