May 03, 2016 // Franchising.com // Omaha, NE – Scooter’s Coffee, the Midwest-based coffee franchise that has experienced tremendous growth over the past year, announced a new franchise agreement for the Scottsbluff, NE market.
“It’s thrilling to see the Scooter’s brand continue to grow and thrive in our home state of Nebraska,” said Don Eckles, co-founder and Chairman of Scooter’s Coffee.
Scooter’s Coffee signed the agreement with Gary Rimington. “I’m thrilled to join the Scooter’s family,” he said. “I’ve always wanted to franchise with a coffee concept.” Rimington went on to add that he believes Scottsbluff is ripe for the picking for Scooter’s Coffee.
“As we’ve seen Nebraskans welcome and embrace their home-grown brand of Scooter’s Coffee, we’re excited to expand into another community of our great state,” said Eckles. “I’m very confident Gary will see tremendous success in this new market.”
This new franchise agreement marks the latest move in the company’s extraordinary growth. With more than 135 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 18 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, 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.
