Yumm! from the Start
After the very first bite in 1993, Yumm! Sauce® gained a fanatical following across the Northwest. Word of its unique flavor experience spread, and folks came to our little cafe asking for the secret sauce on everything from rice bowls and soups to salads and wraps.
This tasty phenomenon grew into a retail line of packaged sauces and Café Yumm!® restaurants franchised across OR, WA, and ID.
“The fact is, I didn’t believe this sort of “health foodie” sauce would go over well with the majority of those who sampled it. I combined so many ingredients I liked, in such a complicated way, that I felt the sauce would remain just that—a family favorite.
I had no dream or expectation that this sauce would lead into a new life, café, and restaurant franchise. I never imagined that the taste of this sauce would not only be well-received but actually become addictive (in the words of my customers).”
