The Twin Cities-based companies said the first coffee shop to be located in a Cub Foods store will open in Maple Grove in late April. The shop will be near both an entrance and checkout lanes at the 8150 Wedgewood Lane North location, offering coffee made from freshly roasted beans.
"Whether customers are looking for a cup of coffee while shopping or a convenient way to enjoy the Dunn Brothers experience, we’re excited to offer them this new option in Maple Grove," enthused Darren Caudill, vice president of merchandising and sales for Cub Foods in a press release.
Dunn Brothers Coffee President Kim Plahn said the joint effort with Cub seemed like a natural fit because both companies "are known for being very active and supportive members of their local communities."
The coffee shop menu will include Dunn Brothers' "top-grade Arabica beans," roasted daily for a "fresh, high-quality experience." Freshly-baked food will also be available.
Cub Foods has 67 locations overall, including 57 in the Twin Cities metro area, while Dunn Brothers boasts 70 locations in Minnesota and 86 overall.
