Dutch Bros Inc. /zigman2/quotes/229331563/composite BROS -6.59% CEO Joth Ricci: "4,000 New Shops Next 10 Years"
"2021 was a fantastic year for Dutch Bros. We started the year with the launch of the brand in Texas, which was a major milestone for the Company. Led by a talented pipeline of regional operators and long-term franchise partners, unit growth accelerated to 98 new shop openings, revenue grew 52.1% and same shop sales increased 8.4%. While our history shows we're a well-established and respected brand, we are still in the early stages of our long-term story. Two years ago, we entered 2020 with just 370 shops in 7 states. We finished 2021 with 538 shops in 12 states. Importantly, new shops are opening at higher average unit volumes than the system average, including in new markets. In 2022, we have committed to opening at least 125 new shops, supported by a robust pipeline and strong consumer acceptance of Dutch Bros. In addition to moving east, we are excited about further expansion in existing markets, including Southern California, a market we believe will be a significant growth driver. Over the next 10 to 15 years, we foresee at least 4,000 shops across the United States."
