Got coffee? Yucaipa sure does and soon it will have another popular chain to add to its extensive list. Dutch Bros. Coffee will be the city’s newest place to get your java fix.
Yucaipa will be one of the first locations in the Inland Empire region for the popular Oregon-based chain.
Dutch Bros. Coffee, on 13th Street and Yucaipa Boulevard, is slated to open soon, according to the city. They have completed building designs and hardscape.
Yucaipa Planning Commis-sion approved the item in November of 2020. Former Commissioner Denise Work voted against the item noting potential issues with parking and traffic in the area.
Yucaipa Mayor Greg Bogh welcomes new businesses.
“Dutch Bros. has noticed the incredible opportunities in the city of Yucaipa and we want to wish them much success with their new facility,” he said.
According to online comments on local social media pages, the community is ready for Dutch Bros. specialty java and espresso drinks, teas and smoothies.
“We are excited for them to open,” said Yucaipa Planning Manager Ben Matlock. “The location, near the different sports and Yucaipa High School will be a nice amenity for someone looking for a refreshing drink. It will definitely be a popular location for those attending different activities there.”
