The newly expanded FivePine Lodge & Conference Center is designed to be a vacation destination for Oregonians and Europeans. Guests are encouraged to hop onto bicycles parked outside the hotel and get acquainted with Sisters as more than just a destination resort, according to owner Bill Willitts. The 15-acre campus includes an athletic club, spa, movie house and venues for outdoorsy activities. He expects the European market will be receptive to the hiking and the local lifestyle, and he’ll travel there later this year to survey the market in person.  FivePine recently added a $10 million section of cottages and lodges that rent from $139 to $279 a day, boasting some of the “most romantic rooms in the state,” says Willitts. Future plans include a restaurant featuring locally grown organic food and drink scheduled to open this fall and vacation rental homes set to open in 2008.

Market of Choice is on a tear. In 2012 the 35-year-old Eugene-based grocery chain opened a central kitchen/distribution center in its hometown. The market opened a third Portland store in the Cedar Mill neighborhood this year; a Bend outpost broke ground in March. A fourth Portland location is slated for the inner southeast “LOCA” development, a mixed-use project featuring condos and retail. Revenues in 2014 were $175 million, a double-digit increase over 2013. CEO Rick Wright discusses growth, market trends and how he keeps new “foodie” grocery clerks happy.
