Christine joined the DB family in 1996 as a “broista” at the coffee house in Grants Pass, OR. She went on to manage for two years, before taking on the role of bookkeeper for the three locations Dutch Bros had at the time. “I’ve had the unique opportunity to watch this company grow from three stores, to more than 320,” says Schmidt. “I am so proud of what Dutch Bros means to each community, each customer, and every broista. We truly do make a difference one cup at a time.” As the company grew, so did Christine’s role in the accounting department, culminating in her position as the Chief Financial Officer. She currently serves as the Chief Administrative Officer for Dutch Bros Coffee overseeing multiple departments and company strategies.
