CafÃ© Yumm! opened its doors Monday, February 16 at RiverBend Medical Center, welcoming patients, visitors, and staff to enjoy beautiful, healthy, delicious food. CafÃ© Yumm!, Lane County’s own fast-casual and uniquely Northwest eatery, was selected last fall by PeaceHealth to operate the only restaurant within the Medical Center.
CafÃ© Yumm! at RiverBend is a franchise, with owner Zack Hegge leading operations. This is the Hegge Family’s second CafÃ© Yumm! â€“ they also own the CafÃ© Yumm! at The Crossroads on Gateway in Springfield.
Grand Opening events are scheduled for March 5, 2009 with an official Springfield Chamber of Commerce Ribbon Cutting at the restaurant at 2:45pm. Springfied Mayor Sid Leiken will be joined by CafÃ© Yumm! founders Mark and Mary Beauchamp and restaurant owners Zack, Ron, and Chris Hegge. Free CafÃ© Yumm! Organic coffee will be served throughout the afternoon.
Debbie McGeorge from FOOD For Lane County will also be present to promote a food drive. Bring in two non-perishable food items as donations to FOOD For Lane County and be entered into a drawing for wonderful CafÃ© Yumm! products, including Yumm! sauce and organic coffee.
