Dutch Bros. Coffee, a West Coast drive-thru coffee chain with a cult following, will officially expand to Houston in 2021.
A representative for the chain tells Eater that Dutch Bros. is currently planning to open at least five drive-thru coffee shops in the Houston metropolitan area in 2021 and 2022. No locations for these outposts have been selected just yet, but the expansion is part of a big push into Texas for the Oregon-based coffee shop. This week, Dutch Bros. will open its first Texas location in College Station, which is only about an hour-and-a-half drive from Houston for those who are seriously dying to get their hands on an iced breve.
There’s also a big expansion in the works for Dallas-Fort Worth, where Dutch Bros. plans to open 10 locations in the coming months.
For those who are not familiar with Dutch Bros. the chain was founded in Oregon in 1992, and has since become a coffee staple on the West Coast. It’s known for its convenient drive-thrus, hyper-friendly staff, and a dizzying number of customizable drinks and flavor options. Everything from classic black coffee to a coconut-mocha concoction called Cocomo and even a proprietary energy drink are on the menu, along with small breakfast-y snacks like granola bars and muffin tops.
Stay tuned for more details on where and when Dutch Bros. will make its debut in Houston.
