The Salty Dog Coffee House has new manager

Jason Ramsey, who took over management of the The Salty Dog Coffee Bar at the Port of Brookings Harbor Sept. 3, said he is excited about his opportunity to become part owner.

Ramsey worked for the previous owners of the coffee house and “They brought me in and I kinda’ caught on real quick,” he said.

In addition to his experience at The Salty Dog, Ramsey has also worked at MoJoe’s in Brookings, and said enjoys the business.

His plans are to continue the offerings started by co-owner Jill Fairchild and her partners last November when they assumed ownership of The Salty Dog, including the milk shakes, smoothies, and hot and cold custom drinks, plus fresh pastries, and Taylor sausages. Ramsey said he will continue to offer specials to businesses, including free delivery on any order of $20 or more.

“I’m trying to help the schools, with contests, basketball games, advertising and challenges for half-court shots,” he said. “I want to be the Daryn Farmer of coffee. He’s such a good role model, into everything and donating a lot.”

Ramsey, who moved to Brookings two years ago to be near his daughter who lives in Crescent City, said the move changed his life.

“I have met some of the best people I’ve ever known in the (Chetco Pelican Players) theater, and being in the “The Philadelphia Story” turned my whole life around.”

The Salty Dog Coffee Bar is open from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week.
