What's Happenin'!

Thanks for tapping into our world. I opened Beaches in 1995 (Thursday, June 1st, 1995 at 4:00pm with our first Guest Debbie to be exact), and it’s just been a cool ride ever since. Our goal here is to give you an experience- it’s got to be more than just eating. To do that you need a team of people who truly care about YOU. Since day one, I’ve been lucky to work with 100’s of people who have challenged us to be better.

I hope you get that feeling every time you visit the Beach!

Now, let me tell ya what I’ve been doing. It’s been busy lately working on the new restaurant at the Airport, which is currently operating as the Rose City CafĂ©. After the first of the year we will close it down, take over the Pendleton Store space, and turn it into a very ‘Tropical’ Beaches. We are in the design phase right now which also includes a take-out concept for those people on the ‘fly’. You’re gonna love it!!

We had a great Summer at Beaches Vancouver, and the Beaches Summertime Cruisin’s were a big success once again. Our Sponsors were a big help in our efforts to raise money for local kids, as well as all those Hot Rod & Bike enthusiasts. You probably know our main sponsors, but let me remind you . . .Les Schwab; The Columbian Newspaper; Maletis/Budweiser/Widmer; The Garage; Fred Meyer; and Umpqua Bank. We couldn’t raise the big bucks without them- please show them your support. I should have the final numbers as to the amount raised in about a week.

As a final note, just want to thank my teams at Vancouver & Rose City. They truly do a great job day in and day out for one simple reason . . . they care. That’s what makes it Fun!

Chat at you in a week,
