Member Spotlight: Cafe Yumm
Doug has deep roots in Portland, graduating from University of Portland in 1999. During those days he would catch the 3/2/1 deal at Widmer ($3 burger, $2 beer, $1 pretzel) and then head over to Lloyd Cinema for the $5 Monday Movie Special.
After spending 11yrs at Nike, Doug obtained his Executive MBA from University of Portland and diversified his work experience at Ice Breaker, Columbia Sportswear and even a startup before coming full circle by becoming a Yum Cafe owner in the Lloyd area. He cites the revitalization of the area, influx of development and lack of food services as primary reasons why he settled in the Lloyd community for his business.
Two years after opening, Doug is experiencing success and foresees the restaurant being a family business. He plans to bring his son and daughter on board in the future, not to mention his third one on the way in August!
