Dutch Bros. could soon be coming to Ripon.
At Monday’s Planning Commission meeting, Planning Director Ken Zuidervaart mentioned that the privately-owned coffee chain based in Oregon is looking at the Save Mart shopping center to set up shop.
Dutch Bros.’ application is scheduled for review at the December meeting.
“(Dutch Brothers) would like to go on a small pad adjacent to the entrance of the Save Mart shopping center over by Domino’s Pizza,” said Zuidervaart.
He indicated that some of the plans such as the dual drive-thru service – capable of accommodating up to 17 cars – and possible traffic concerns in the area of West Colony Road and Brady Lane are still being ironed out.
If approved, Dutch Brothers will join Starbucks as another coffee option for travelers along Highway 99.
Dutch Bros. at 1105 West Yosemite Ave. next to Cabral Motors in Manteca is currently under construction and, once open for business, will join the four locations in Stockton and one each in Oakdale, Modesto and Turlock.
A Dutch Bros. location has also been approved in Lathrop.
