Oregon-based drive-thru coffee chain Dutch Bros. is adding the Churchill High School neighborhood as part of its expansion into the San Antonio area.
Dutch Bros. on Sept. 22 filed a project with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation with plans to develop a 950-square-foot free-standing location at 10319 Blanco Road near West Avenue.
According to the filing, construction will take place between mid-February and mid-May in 2022 at an estimated cost of $550,000.
Jeffrey Bennett is the name of the franchise owner/tenant on file. Houston company Castles Design Group is the project architect.
This Dutch Bros. Coffee on Blanco Road will join existing drive-thru coffee businesses elsewhere along Blanco between West Avenue and Wurzbach Parkway, including What's Brewing Coffee Roasters' site across from Churchill High School,and Starbucks Coffee a little farther up the road.
Known for its signature coffee, tea and energy drinks, Dutch Bros. has more than 450 locations in 11 states—mainly drive-thru sites along the West Coast and in Arizona.
But the company is building up a presence in Texas, including San Antonio, where the first local Dutch Bros. storefront opened Sept. 29 at 8614 Potranco Road. A long line of motorists was found there on opening day.
Other San Antonio-area Dutch Bros. storefronts are opening in Universal City in October and are under construction at West Avenue and Loop 410 in Castle Hills, on Walzem Road in Windcrest and on Rittiman Road.
