February 10, 2016 // Franchising.com // Omaha, NE – Scooter’s Coffee, the Midwest-based coffee franchise that has experienced tremendous growth over the past year, announced that they will increase their national footprint to the state of Oklahoma with their first location in the Tulsa market (6954 S. Lewis Ave).
“We’re thrilled to see the Scooter’s brand continue to grow and be introduced to new states and communities,” said Don Eckles, Co-Founder of Scooter’s Coffee.
This will be the first lease executed by franchisees Bill Allen and Morgan Wolff, who will act as owner/operators for the location and have intentions of building multiple locations in the Tulsa market.
“Being from Council Bluffs, IA, which is neighbor to the Omaha metro, I know how strong of a brand Scooter’s is,” said Wolff. “I’m very excited to bring the Scooter’s name and product to my new home of Tulsa.”
With more than 130 stores in soon-to-be 15 states, Scooter’s recently signed a large Area Representative Agreement in Phoenix, along with several other Multi-Unit Agreements in Florida, Oklahoma and Arkansas. In late 2015, the company opened its first location in Roswell, Georgia (Atlanta metro) and plans to build several more stores in the Atlanta area. At the same time, Scooter’s will continue to build locations in the Midwest region, with several stores slated to be opened in Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa, South Dakota and Missouri.
The company also added depth to its product profile in 2015, with the release of its toasted gouda cheese ciabatta and bagel breakfast sandwiches, along with the Southwest Breakfast Burrito. Scooter’s, which hand-crafts its pastries and roasts its own 100% shade-grown coffee (sourced through the Arbor Day Foundation), at their Omaha headquarters, will add several innovative items to the menu in 2016, including a comprehensive iced tea program and more breakfast options.
Founded in 1998 by Don and Linda Eckles in Bellevue, Nebraska, Scooter’s Coffee roasts only the finest coffee beans in the world at its headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska. Scooter's success over 17 years of history is simple: Stay committed to the original business principles and company core values. The Scooter's mantra, often recited to franchisees, customers and employees is: "Amazing People, Serving Amazing Drinks, Amazingly Fast.” It represents the company's business origins from 1998 and reflects a steady commitment to providing an unforgettable experience to loyal customers.
