Caffeine hunters on the go have another local option after drive-thru coffee chain Dutch Bros Coffee opened its first Johnson County location in Shawnee this month.

Driving the news: Dutch Bros Coffee on Shawnee Mission Parkway opened for its first day of business last Friday, with the Shawnee Chamber of Commerce officially marking the opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony earlier in the week.

Where exactly: The new Dutch Bros will serve coffee and other drinks at 11335 Shawnee Mission Parkway, between Nieman and Quivira roads.

 

What else: The coffee shop neighbors AdventHealth’s Centra Care center and Arby’s across Flint Street.

  • The store operates as a drive-thru and walk-up coffee shop only, and does not offer indoor seating.
  • Staff greet customers waiting in the drive-thru to serve them more quickly (similar to what customers at Chick-fil-A may experience).
  • Regular hours for Dutch Bros on Shawnee Mission Parkway will be 5 a.m. to 10 p.m., Sunday through Thursday and 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

What’s on the menu: Dutch Bros offers a range of coffee drinks — from classic cold brew to featured flavors like coconut mochas and the “golden eagle” with vanilla and caramel.

  • Outside of coffee, other items on the Dutch Bros menu include cocoa drinks, chai tea, smoothies and flavored sodas.
