The northeast’s come up is real, y’all.
First, a brand-new Olive Garden opened in February followed by a Burlington in March. And now, a Dutch Bros Coffee and four other new businesses will open on that side of town by the end of the year.
Northeast El Paso Seeing Long Overdue Growth
Northeast El Paso has been undeserved by businesses for years, but more shopping and dining establishments are opening locations in the area or announcing plans to do so.
And it’s not just restaurants and department stores. A residential community that will includes homes and apartments, a school, and a hike and bike trail system is currently being developed near Painted Dunes Golf Course.
Dutch Bros Coffee Brewing Up Northeast Location
If you’re a coffee connoisseur and you live or work in northeast, you’ll be happy to know Dutch Bros Coffee is expanding to your side of town in 2022.
Documents show a franchise location will be going up at 4810 Woodrow Bean Transmountain Dr.
Like the two Dutch Bros’ that have already opened around El Paso and the three currently under construction, the future northeast location will have a double drive-thru lane and walk-up window. There will not be any indoor seating.
Where On the Northeast Is It Going to Be?
An site plan illustration shows it adjacent to Olive Garden.
As of this writing it’s still an empty lot, but according to documents submitted to the state, construction is expected to begin in mid-June and a projected completion in mid-to-late September. However, those dates aren’t always set in stone. (Pun totally intended.)
4 Other New Businesses Coming to Northeast
The area along Woodrow Bean Transmountain and Kenworthy has seen numerous businesses pop up over the last year or so. The Shack Wings & Brews, Boozy Tacos and Tap, Gentleman’s Barbershop, Teapioca Lounge, and a Pizza Hut have all recently opened.
Currently, under various stages of construction, is a Tommy’s Express Car Wash, Jiffy Lube, Marco’s Pizza, and Tropical Smoothie Café. All will likely open by the end of the year.
