City Council to Hear Dutch Bros Request for Second Elk Grove Store

May 6, 2016 |

Hoping to expand its already strong presence in the community, Dutch Bros.'s application to open a second drive-thru coffee shop in Elk Grove will be considered at Wednesday night's City Council meeting.

The popular coffee-based beverage operator, which opened its East Stockton Boulevard store in 2015 to great fanfare, is hoping to secure a second location on the northwest corner of Elk Grove-Florin and Sheldon Roads. The site where the local operators hope to build their 800 sq. ft. two window drive-thru facility is an unimproved parcel that is part of the Sheldon Crossing strip center.

The Elk Grove Planning Commission unanimously approved the request at their April 6 meeting. As part of their approval, the planning commissioners requested and the applicant agreed to change the color of the structure to match the motif of the strip center.

The original approval for the strip center in 2003 required that an addition of any drive-thru facility be approved by the City Council. Additionally, because the drive-thru facility is within 1,000 feet of the rural residential general plan designation, it must obtain a conditional use permit.

Next Wednesday's meeting starts at 6 p.m. at Elk Grove City Hall.
