September 12, 2016 // Franchising.com // Omaha, NE – Scooter’s Coffee, the Midwest-based coffee franchise that is on track for another record-breaking year of growth, announced it will continue to expand its presence in the state of Arizona with a Multi-Store Development Agreement for 10 locations in the Chandler, Gilbert and Scottsdale areas.
“As we approach the grand opening of our first-ever location in (2635 W. Glendale Ave) Phoenix, it’s thrilling to see Scooter’s Coffee already garnering brand recognition in the area,” said Rob Streett, President and COO of Scooter’s. “We’ve taken great strides in 2016 to bolster our national presence from coast-to-coast, and this agreement is testament to that effort.”
Scooter’s signed the agreement with Scott and Pam Gass, who currently live in Elkhorn, NE. Scott and Pam join Scooter’s with several years of franchise experience with another brand. Their daughter, who currently lives in the Phoenix area, will be the operator for their first location of many.
With more than 150 stores open in 12 states, Scooter’s Coffee has signed agreements in three additional states throughout the country and will open more than 40 locations from coast to coast in 2016. Over the next few months, the company boasts a robust grand opening pipeline, which includes its first-ever location in the state of Arizona. This summer, the company opened its first of many locations in Florida and added a second location to the Atlanta, GA metro area. It will also add several locations this year to expanding markets, such as Iowa, Kansas, Texas and Nebraska.
Scooter’s, which is based out of Omaha, Nebraska, handcrafts its pastries and roasts its own 100% shade-grown coffee, sourced through Arbor Day Foundation. In 2016, the company also added depth to its product profile, releasing a new line of Organic Hot and Iced Teas earlier this summer. In addition to its nearly-100% gluten-free beverage menu, Scooter's will soon add gluten-free food items to its extensive menu.
