Customers were met with long lines at a new drive-thru coffee shop in Santa Maria.
Dutch Bros Coffee opened at 1760 N. Broadway Thursday, making it the company’s 439th location.
Dutch Bros says it’s the nation’s largest family-owned drive-thru coffee company.
Hours are Sunday through Thursday from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Along with coffee, Dutch Bros offers smoothies, tea, freezes, lemonade and more.
Nicole Frohnauer, operator of the Santa Maria store, is also the operator of a store still under construction at 1259 E. Grand Ave. in Arroyo Grande. An opening date for that location has not yet been set.
