The former gas station at Alvernon and 22nd Street will be redeveloped for yet another Dutch Bros. Coffee drive-thru.

Dutch Bros. continues its rapid expansion in Southern Arizona.

Land for its seventh Tucson-area coffee shop was recently bought by developers on the northeast corner of 22nd Street and Alvernon Way.

Cole Valley Partners LLC bought the former gas station from Kettenbach LLC for $925,000 and plans to redevelop it for the drive-thru coffee house.

Scott Soelter and Ben Craney, with NAI Horizon, represented the seller and GPS Retail, out of Phoenix, represented the buyer.

Since opening in the Tucson market last year, on East Broadway and Wilmot Road, Dutch Bros. has already opened three additional shops — near Valencia and Mission roads, Golf Links and Harrison roads, and Old Vail and Houghton roads. Dutch Bros. also has a location in Green Valley.

Along with the 22nd Street location, two other shops are under development, at Grant and Swan roads and Cortaro Road and Interstate 10.

No doubt their frosts, freezes and lemonades are a hit during the hot summer months.
