Med City coffee drinkers have a new option to grab a drive-thru cup

Caribou Coffee fired up its new 627-square-foot Caribou Cabin location in Rochester on Tuesday at 1021 15th Ave. Southeast. That means it sits in the Cub Foods Plaza parking lot at 12th Street and 15th Avenue Southeast. This is Rochester’s 13th spot to grab a cup of Caribou Coffee. Following the Snappy Stop model, this one is drive-thru or walk-thru only.

A new Med City coffee drive-thru started pouring on Tuesday, adding another choice to Rochester’s seemingly bottomless cup of caffeine curators.

A team of 23 employees staff the new shop.

The project was first proposed in 2020, but it stalled in the early days of the pandemic. However, it started percolating again early this year and construction recently wrapped up.

However, following the Snappy Stop model, this one is drive-thru or walk-thru only. Caribou introduced this “iconic Northwoods” cabin format in 2019. This latest Caribou Cabin is the 15th one in Minnesota.

A grand opening event with special offers is scheduled for Dec. 17. On that day, Caribou will offer $1 off any large or XL beverage purchase.

During the grand opening weekend, Caribou will also donate $1 for every customer visit to the American Red Cross Service that provides services to members of the US military.
