A former Taco Bueno restaurant at 7970 N. Academy Blvd. in Colorado Springs will become home to a new Dutch Bros Coffee shop. The location will have a drive-thru and some indoor seating; it’s scheduled to open in the fourth quarter of this year.

Dutch Bros plans to open its new Colorado Springs location Friday, perhaps perfect timing after the wintry blast that hit much of the region.

The coffee shop's newest location at 7970 N. Academy Blvd. is taking the place of a Taco Bueno restaurant that was housed in the building. 

Dutch Bros usually appeals more to drive-thru customers and walk-ups, but the new location on North Academy will keep some of the former Taco Bueno’s indoor seating.

“We are so excited to expand our presence in Colorado Springs,” said Bryan Gumpy, operator of Dutch Bros Colorado Springs, in a news release. 

Dutch Bros serves specialty coffee, smoothies, freezes, teas, a private-label Dutch Bros Blue Rebel energy drink and nitrogen-infused cold brew coffee.
