News that the Grants Pass, Oregon-based Dutch Bros. Coffee is planning to build several new locations in metro Albuquerque comes on the heels of the company’s continuing expansion in the West.
The company, with more than four hundred outlets in the West, several months ago announced plans to have more than 800 shops up and running by 2023.
Launched in 1992 and with annual revenues near the $500 million mark, the company has made its mark as a drive-up service only, with structures measuring anywhere between 800 and 850 square feet.
Those outlets typically sit on sites ranging in size between 30,000 and 35,000 square feet.
The company is currently building two new California locations in Apple Valley and Rancho Cordova; and earlier this year opened a new location in Aurora, Colorado.
In recent months, Dutch Bros. Coffee has made its presence known in New Mexico not only with the construction and opening of a new outlet in Rio Rancho, but plans for another location in that city, as well as two more in Albuquerque.
Dutch Bros. Coffee is the largest drive-through only, privately held coffee company in the country. It is named after its founders, Dane and Travis Boersma, both of Dutch descent.
