UPDATE: Due to the extreme heat, and the fact that the CCHM doesn’t have fully functioning air conditioning, this event has been cancelled for the time being. Check the museum’s Facebook page for updates.
When Jacob Propstra sailed to America from the Netherlands in 1914, he had no idea his humble creamery would one day inspire the Pacific Northwest institution we now know as Burgerville. After one particularly disastrous beach retreat, Tom Mears, CEO, knew the company’s mission was in trouble. In Serve with Love, Mears writes about the critical decisions Burgerville’s team took to build this mission-led business, and a number of the mistakes they made along the way.
