Dutch Bros Coffee, the popular Oregon-based coffee drive-thru chain, is making its way into the Austin area with seven planned locations. There are two locations planned for Round Rock: the first will open at 1700 East Palm Valley Boulevard, Suite 850 on Friday, July 23; and the second at 3589 North I-35 sometime soon.
On deck is the Dutch Classics menu with mochas and breves (espresso with steamed half-and-half), from caramel mochas to Irish cream breves. Other coffee drinks include a frozen blended espresso, cold brew, and Americano. Non-coffee options include the company’s own energy drink, the Blue Rebel, as well as shakes, smoothies, lemonades, and Italian sodas. The coffee chain focuses on operating drive-thru and walk-up window locations.
Overseeing the Round Rock drive-thru, dubbed Dutch Bros North Austin, is Sarah Slachter, who most recently operated locations in Las Vegas. The first Texas location of Dutch actually opened up in College Station in January. There are plans for additional drive-thrus for Houston and Dallas.
Co-founders Dane and Travis Boersma started Dutch in 1992 in Grants Pass, Oregon. It has since grown with 422 locations throughout ten states, including Washington, California, Idaho, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico.
This isn’t the first Oregon coffee company making its way into Texas, either. Coffee chain Black Rock opened its first Texas location in the Southwest Austin area in 2020, followed by Round Rock in January.
Dutch Bros’s Round Rock hours will be from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday to Thursday and then from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday to Saturday.
