Dutch Bros Coffee to Open First El Paso Location
Ahhh, coffee; cheaper than a meth addiction and slightly less brutal on your teeth.
If you’re anything like me, you totally agree with Folgers that the best part of waking up is coffee in your cup. Okay, scratch that, second best. The best part of waking up is the fact that you woke up. But I digress.
If you're a coffee addict, connoisseur or simply enjoy drive-thrus, you’ll be happy to know another coffee purveyor is coming to town. Dutch Bros Coffee, one of the fastest-growing drive-thru coffee chains in the country, will be expanding into El Paso this year.
Headquartered in Oregon and founded in 1992 by two brothers of Dutch descent, Dutch Bros Coffee is bringing its variety of coffees, caffeinated beverages, teas, energy drinks, and smoothies to the far east side.
Documents online show the company plans to open at the new Eastlake Marketplace this fall. Details are limited as plans are in the early stages, but records show construction of its first El Paso location is expected to begin in May with a target completion date of mid-September.
Dutch Bros. Coffee has hundreds of locations in the western United States but only a handful in Texas. There are only two operating in the state with two more currently under construction. El Paso will be its fifth.
A Las Cruces location is expected to open this spring near the Mister Car Wash at the intersection of Bataan Memorial East and Rinconada Boulevard.
