On Saturday, May 4, Moses Lake-area Dutch Bros. Coffee locations will give customers a free custom comic book, Dutch Bros. Freedom Fighters #4, to celebrate National Free Comic Book Day.
The comic is the fourth in a kid-friendly series written by Jason Hetzer and illustrated by Jeffery Egli, who are both based in Grants Pass, Ore.
Dutch Bros. Coffee employs a large number of comic book enthusiasts, among them Company Co-founder Dane Boersma’s son Brant, who is editor-in-chief.
“Comics are a way of story telling, and Dutch Bros. loves stories,” says Brant. “In the stands, you get to hear all these different stories about customers’ lives, and they become your friends.”
In addition to “spreading the Dutch Love” to its customers, Dutch Bros. gives over $1 million annually to nonprofit organizations and causes selected by local owner-operators.
