Get a free cup of coffee (or other beverage) Friday — and you don’t even have to leave your car.

Dutch Bros. Coffee opens its newest drive-through location Friday at 8663 Auburn Folsom Rd. in Granite Bay. To mark the occasion, that Dutch Bros. outlet will offer customers a free 16-ounce beverage from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m.

“We are beyond excited to open in Granite Bay,” said local co-owner Brian Place. “We want to serve coffee and our community like no one else around.”

Brian and Mattie Place, a husband and wife team, have been a part of the Dutch Bros. family since 2007. “We look forward to sharing the ‘Dutch Love,’ ” Brian said. “Our customers fill our cup.”

After this Friday’s debut, the Granite Bay location will be open 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

Based in Oregon, Dutch Bros. has more than 200 drive-through locations in seven states. Besides fresh-brewed coffees, the shops offer specialty coffee drinks, smoothies, freezes, teas and Dutch Bros. Blue Rebel energy drink. Learn more at
