Here’s a little something to start the last day of the work week off right.

On Friday, Sept. 27, Dutch Bros. Coffee Drive-Thru will give away free drinks all day, from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m., at its new Mesa location at 1326 S. Alma School Road. That’s near West Southern Avenue next to the Fiesta Mall.

All 16-oz. drinks will be free, including specialty coffee, smoothies, freezes and the coffee house’s private-label energy drink.

“We are very excited for the new location,” said owner-operator Jim Thompson in a release. “To have grown at the rate we have is amazing.”

The drive-thru makes four East Valley Dutch Bros. locations for Thompson and his wife, Janice. They plan to open a fifth this December in the downtown Gilbert historic district.

The Alma School Road location will be open 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.
