Arkansas-based 7 Brew Coffee is making its way to the Kansas City metro with plans to open two drive-thru-only locations in south Overland Park.
Catch up quick: The coffee chain is working to open its first Overland Park location at 15041 Metcalf Avenue, near 151st Street, followed by another drive-thru at 11001 Metcalf Avenue, according to city documents.
Details: 7 Brew specializes in both iced and hot coffee, as well as mocha chillers, according to its website.
Customers can customize their drinks by adding one of the company’s seven original flavorings, such as Snickerz or White Chocolate Mocha.
Background: The company opened its first location in Rogers, Ark., in 2017 and now has more than 35 locations across several states, including Missouri.
The company’s rapid expansion has been enabled, in part, by an investment from the owners of Lone Star Steakhouses and Jimmy John’s sandwich shops.
Key quote: “We have set ambitious growth and expansion goals, including launching a franchising program,” Evan Grisham, president and director of franchising, said in a news release.

EBS Investments LLC, an area franchisee group who owns the 11001 Metcalf location, previously told the Post it plans to open three additional 7 Brew drive-thrus in Overland Park by 2024.
Company officials did not immediately respond to inquiries about opening dates for its Overland Park locations.
