Morgan Wolff and William Allen will own this location. "We got involved with Scooter's because we wanted to have a place where people could conveniently get an amazing cup of coffee or a delicious fruit smoothie,” said Wolff. “As local owners, it gives us an opportunity to brighten their day and make a positive impact in our community. When we met the founders of Scooter's, Don and Linda Eckles, we knew immediately that this company was a fit for us.”
With more than 140 stores open in 12 states, Scooter’s Coffee has signed agreements in three additional states throughout the country and will open over 40 locations from coast to coast in 2016.

Earlier in the summer, the company opened its first of many locations in Florida. It will also add several locations this year to expanding markets, such as Iowa, Kansas, Texas and Georgia.

Currently, Scooter’s is touting its new Cold Brew & Cream offering, which combines slow-steeped cold brew with 100% real cream and several innovative flavor options. In addition to its nearly-100% gluten-free beverage menu, Scooter's will soon add gluten-free food items to its extensive menu.
