Coffee is huge, and while there is a debate over which is better local coffee stands or the big chains. There is one chain that has proven itself quite popular locally in Spokane and Coeur d' Alene both. And now it appears Spokane will be getting another Dutch Bros. location in the near future.
Plans have been submitted by Swenson,G J, INC. and Baier,LLC for a new Dutch Bros. drive up coffee stand at 931 E. Francis Ave. in North Spokane. 931 E. Francis is currently also the address of a business called Grumpy's Car Wash which is at the corner of Francis and Nevada.
There isn't a mention on the info that I have obtained so far as if the new Dutch Bros. stand will replace the car wash or just be built by it. However plans do indicate the building will be a 390 square foot structure with 2 drive up windows much like the other Dutch Bros. locations.
Dutch Bros. Coffee is a rapidly growing chain with headquarters offices located Grant's Pass,Oregon and around 200 locations in 7 states. The chain is very popular in the Northwest and is often one of the busiest coffee stands in the communities they serve.
Dutch Bros. is far from new to the Spokane market with the following local locations already open: in Spokane- 402 W. 2nd Ave , 1010 W. Francis , 1306 N. Division , 402 S. Freya , 8701 N. Division . And in Coeur d' Alene - 118 W. Hanley Ave and 1680 Northwest Blvd. .
Dutch Bros. fans will also want to take note as the chain will be featured in a episode of the hit TV show, Undercover Boss. The Dutch Bros. Undercover Boss episode will air nationwide on CBS on Friday Nov. 15th 2013 at 8pm, consult listings for exact times. The Undercover Boss episode will feature Dutch Bros. President Travis Boersma as he goes undercover doing a number of jobs at locations within the Dutch Bros system. No news yet if any of those locations are local.
