Minnesota-based Caribou Coffee will roll out new store concepts in multiple cities throughout the state.

“Caribou Cabins” will feature drive-thru a walk-up windows, with no indoor seating. The cabins will be in Caribou’s recognizable blue color and resemble the company’s “Northwoods” feel.

The Cabins will also feature new menu items including “flavor-infused” drink items, like sparkling waters, juices and sodas, made from coffee beans .

The first locations will pop up in Jordan, Burnsville, St. Peter, Big Lake and Willmar. But you won’t see any Caribou Cabins in Minneapolis, which banned the construction of any new drive-thrus in the city earlier this month.

"Caribou Coffee will continue to lean into the Northern roots that made our brand what it is today. We are confident that our new Cabin concept will differentiate us even more by delivering customers the highest quality coffee, expanded beverage innovation and ownable guest interaction that only Caribou can deliver," said John Butcher, president and CEO of Caribou Coffee in a press release.

Caribou is the second-largest company-operated coffee house in the U.S., with more than 300 stores throughout the country. Of those stores, a significant portion are in Minnesota, which is home to 288 Caribou locations, according to Caribou’s website.
