“We were referred initially to Horenstein Law Group through our accounting firm and then learned that the Horensteins were our neighbors down the street. They have handled all of our legal work since we opened our first location six years ago. It is nice to have one single contact for everything from business structure to property acquisition. Between Cindy and Steve Horenstein and Jean Shaw, they cover everything we need.”
Horenstein Law Group has supported the area Dutch Bros. Coffee franchisee with the formation of its business structure and related LLCs as well as all related business services. Services have included negotiating leases and property acquisition, and negotiations with neighbors and government agencies. The organization operates with five LLCs.
Doing business as Dutch Bros. Coffee, the business has four store locations in west Vancouver. Owner-operator Kenny Stromer joined Dutch Bros. at its Grants Pass, Ore., headquarters in 1998. He served as a regional manager in Eugene before securing a franchise to bring Dutch Bros. Coffee to southwest Washington. Dutch Bros. Coffee is a privately held drive-through coffee chain with nearly 250 company-owned and franchise locations throughout the western United States.
“We look to Horenstein Law Group for all of our corporate documentation and filings, as well as setting up our business entities in accordance with our estate planning goals as we transition to a second generation. We appreciate how Cindy really listens to what we are trying to accomplish. She is a great listener, she understands our business, and she follows through.”
Tapani Inc. has worked with Cindy for about 15 years. She helps Tapani develop the appropriate business structure, ownership percentages, and properly setting up new limited liability companies to support the company’s business and estate planning goals. Tapani is a very large family and Cindy is helping transition the company’s business structure and ownership to the next generation.

“I’ve known Steve and Cindy for a long time and engaged them a few years ago to support our latest technology. They are very intelligent in what they do, and they go out of their way to help you succeed. If we need something in Japan, Steve and the team will find a solution there. We feel the organization is honest and straight forward and their services are reasonably priced. They are very good friends.”
