February 18, 2016 // Franchising.com // OMAHA, NE – Scooter’s Coffee, the emerging national franchise that opened a record number of locations in 2015, announced that it has signed a lease for a drive-thru coffee kiosk in The Colony, Texas. The kiosk is slated to open in June 2016 and will be located on the Southeast corner of South Colony Blvd. and Main Street.
The new store marks the company’s sixth location in Texas, with plans to double store count in this state by the close of 2016. Based out of Omaha, NE, Scooter’s has changed the coffee landscape in Texas by offering world-class, premium coffee, espresso and smoothies in the convenience of a drive-thru model. The growing franchise also hand-crafts its pastries and roasts its own 100% shade grown coffees (sourced through the Arbor Day Foundation), at their Omaha headquarters.
“We have many successful sit-down coffee shops in our system, but the drive-thru kiosk remains our core business model.,” stated Carolyn Snider, Director of Real Estate, Scooter’s Coffee. “Our kiosks are small in area, but they drive big business to the targeted areas that we choose. It’s a game-changer for landlords looking to maximize their profit, creating an additional revenue stream in what would have been 10-12 parking spaces.”
Cris and Mike Taylor will own and operate the Colony location. The couple, who were born and raised in Nebraska, witnessed the brand’s unprecedented success in the Midwest. Having visited Dallas frequently, they realized that the bustling metro area was the perfect spot to launch a drive-thru specialty coffee shop.
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.
