While Dutch Bros Coffee has been opening its locations on the outskirts of town lately, its next drive-thru is in the middle of the city.
Construction is almost finished on its next coffee shop, at Clinton and Cedar avenues in Fresno. The new building is nearly done at 4334 E. Clinton Ave., just east of the 7-Eleven and AutoZone.
It’s scheduled to open sometime in January, according to a company representative.
The regional coffee giant’s drive-thrus (and a few locations with rare indoor seating) are popular in Fresno. They often attract lines of cars of people willing to wait for their Golden Eagle breves (an espresso-based drink made with half-and-half) and other sweet drinks.
The new location will have a drive-thru and walk-up window.
The local franchise owner of the Fresno-area Dutch Bros has been expanding lately, most recently opening a drive-thru at Willow and Alluvial avenues in Clovis.
Next up are locations at the Marketplace at El Paseo near Highway 99 and Herndon Avenue, and the northwest corner of Willow Avenue and Kings Canyon Road. That one will open along with a Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers.
Franchisees Brent and Genesis Wilson are also building a shopping center in Kerman with a Dutch Bros and four other spots that will be leased out.
