Dunn Brothers, Cub Foods join forces for chain's first in-store coffee shop

Dunn Brothers Coffee and Cub Foods are teaming up for the grocery store's first in-store coffee shop.

The two Minnesota-based companies announced Tuesday that the coffee shop is expected to open in late April in the Cub Foods store on Wedgewood Lane North in Maple Grove, according to a press release.

“As the Twin Cities hometown grocer, we’re especially excited to work with another strong local company like Dunn Brothers. We invite everyone to visit the Maple Grove Cub Foods and experience it firsthand,” said Darren Caudill, vice president of merchandising and sales for Cub Foods, according to the press release.

The coffee shop will offer freshly baked food and coffee at the front of the store, near both the entrance and the checkout lanes.

It's unclear if this is the beginning of a longer partnership between the 67-store grocery chain and 86-shop coffee chain, the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal says.

"We have no specific plans to announce at this time regarding other locations, but I can tell you we are optimistic about the growth opportunities for coffee shops in our Cub stores," Supervalu spokesman Luke Friedrich, told the Business Journal. Eden Prairie-based Supervalu, Inc. owns Stillwater-based Cub Foods.

This isn't the first time a Minnesota coffee shop and a Minnesota grocery store have teamed up. Minneapolis-based Caribou Coffee and Edina-based Lunds Food Holdings, Inc. (which operates Lunds and Byerlys grocery stores) have also joined forces.
