Dutch Bros Coffee, which Forbes magazine describes as the country’s largest private drive-thru coffeehouse chain, appears to be on the verge of finalizing plans for a Main Street location in Logan.
The Town of Logan Community Development Department confirmed on Wednesday that an application for a permit from Dutch Bros. to renovate the former Papa John’s pizzeria at 910 N. Main St. has been approved and that the company is working with the Department of Transportation. of Utah to finalize an aisle configuration. .
âThey’re trying to figure out the design of this driveway because Dutch Bros. is putting up a through window, and so UDOT wants to make sure these impacts don’t get in the way of the freeway,â said Logan senior planner Russ Holley, who went on to explain that the proposed renovation project “would not change the footprint” of the current building, but would give the structure a new look.
Contacted by The Herald Journal, the Oregon-based coffeehouse chain reportedly only said it was “in the early stages of planning a location in Logan,” but no construction or opening time has been proposed. .
Dutch Bros., which serves a wide variety of drinks as well as a limited selection of pastries, has more than 400 outlets in the American West, including 12 in Utah. Ten of them are on the Wasatch front and two are in St. George.
The company does not offer a franchise. It indicates in media documents that “all sites are owned by the company and that regional operator positions are offered exclusively to people within the company who have demonstrated exceptional professional experience and exemplify the culture” ,
The property at 910 N. Main has an estimated market value of $ 518,858 and is listed as owned by Milk Crate Development LLC of Heber City, Utah. No contact information for the LLC is available on Cache County Parcel Viewer or elsewhere online.
The Herald Journal recently asked its Facebook followers which restaurant chains they would most like to see coming to Cache Valley, and Dutch Bros. has received several recommendations. The chain was launched in 1992 in Grants Pass, Oregon, by third-generation dairy farmers Dane and Travis Boersma.
