The town of Bernalillo is getting its own Dutch Bros coffee shop.

Company spokeswoman Rilynn Davis confirmed the 800-square-foot shop is under construction with hopes to open by the end of the year. It’s on a large lot at 340 U.S. 550, east of Camino Don Tómas.

“We’re so excited to join the Bernalillo community,” said Casey Olson, operator of Dutch Bros Bernalillo and both Rio Rancho shops in the chain. “The community has been so welcoming, and we’re stoked to serve up their favorite drinks.”

The shop will have a single-lane drive-thru and a walk-up window, Davis said. She expects 40-50 employees to work there.

Davis said the Bernalillo location will be much like the two Rio Rancho shops.

“Bernalillo is a great community, business-friendly and just a short distance from our Rio Rancho shops,” she said of the reasons for choosing the town for the next Dutch Bros location.
