A popular metro Albuquerque donut and coffee shop has received an early green light to build a new 1,300 square foot location in Rio Rancho.
Members of the Rio Rancho Governing Body have given their approval to site plans for the project, which is slated to go up in the 2000 block of Unser Boulevard SE.
As planned, the new Rise + Roast Donuts + Coffee outlet, located within the Petroglyph Medical Plaza, will feature a drive-up window, as well as space for both indoor and outdoor seating.
Project architect for the new location is the Albuquerque-based 66 Architect LLC. A rendering of the project shows a one-story building with a wrap-around glass exterior.
That exterior will be additionally comprised of stucco, metal and fiber board paneling.
Rise + Roast opened its first location roughly 2 years ago at 401 Eubank Boulevard SE and has since sparked a devoted following for its lattes and wide variety of donuts, rolls, fritters and other delicacies.
