With a strong base of 400 stores in Oregon, Washington and Northern California, Dutch Bros. confirmed this week that it is readying an Initial Public Offering (IPO) to take the company public. They have some company stores but are mostly franchised with drive-thrus. With sales per unit of $1.46 million, the brand’s forte is the more expensive espresso and blended coffee drinks, rather than drip coffee. Speaking of more expensive coffee, Starbucks has announced that beginning next week, the company will reintroduce personal reusable cups across company-operated stores within the US. Reusable cups will still not be allowed at the drive-thru windows, while the company continues testing safe options for drive-thru customers. And finally, we noted that JAB Holdings is expanding its coffee company holdings with the planned acquisition of Campos Coffee. The Australian chain currently has 600 units globally with a handful in the U.S.
