The Woods Coffee has been recognized along with several other family-run companies in the 2012 Washington Family Business Awards, hosted by Seattle Business magazine.
Woods Coffee was awarded the Silver Award in the Midsize Companies category.
It was the only Whatcom County business honored at the event.
“Our family dreamt of starting a string of coffee shops more than 10 years ago, so it’s a great feeling to be recognized with an award that represents our dream coming true,” said Wes Herman, owner of Woods Coffee, in a press release.
The company’s latest location, a 1,800-square-foot space adjacent to Regal Cinemas’ new Barkley Village Stadium 16 theater, opened on Dec. 10.
The new store includes a drive-thru and a new “on-tap” delivery service that will serve the coffee chain’s 12-hour Cold Brew iced coffee.
