July 07, 2016 // Franchising.com // Council Bluffs, IA - Scooter’s Coffee, the Midwest-based coffee franchise that has experienced tremendous growth over the past year, will increase their Council Bluffs presence with the company’s latest Grand Opening at 16th & Broadway on Friday, July 8. To celebrate on grand opening day, the new location will offer $1 medium drinks all day.
“We’re thrilled to see the continued growth of our brand in Iowa,” said Rob Streett, Scooter’s President & COO. “As a neighbor of our home state of Nebraska, we know the people of Iowa share our values and know and love our brand.”
On Grand Opening Day, customers can also expect to receive several fun giveaways. Beginning at 9 a.m., the first 100 customers will receive a t-shirt or coffee mug. For the afternoon crowd, there will be $5 gift cards given away for the first 100 customers beginning at 2 p.m.
In celebration of this new store opening, the location will also be treating customers to Free Food Fridays each Friday from July 15 through August 12, where customers can enjoy a complimentary food item with the purchase of any drink (while supplies last).
This location will be owned by Freedom Enterprises. “We got involved with Scooter's because we loved the atmosphere of a coffeehouse and wanted to have a place where people could gather for a great cup of coffee, where we could brighten their day and could make an impact in our community,” said Tracy Bouwens, one of the owners of Freedom Enterprises. “When we met the founders of Scooter's, Don & Linda Eckles, we knew immediately that this company was a fit for us.”
The Council Bluffs grand opening marks the latest move in the company’s extraordinary growth. With 140 stores open in 10 states, Scooter’s Coffee has signed agreements in five additional states throughout the country and will open over 40 locations from coast to coast in 2016. However, the company, which roasts its coffee at its Omaha, Nebraska, headquarters, continues to experience remarkable success in the Midwest market. Most recently, the company opened two additional stores in the Des Moines area and announced its first franchise agreement in the state of Wisconsin.
The company also added depth to its product profile this year with the release of its Organic Iced Tea, which comes in Classic Black, Citrus Green, and Tropical Hibiscus flavors alongside its Shaken Fruit Infusions. 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 continue to add innovative items to the menu in 2016, such as 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.
