September 30, 2016 // Franchising.com // Columbus, Nebraska - Scooter’s Coffee, the Midwest-based franchise that has experienced tremendous growth over the past year, will increase its Nebraska presence with the company’s first-ever location in the town of Columbus (2117 23rd Street). On Friday, September 30, the new drive-thru coffee shop will celebrate its Grand Opening with $2 medium drinks all day.
“We have experienced remarkable success in the state of Nebraska, especially in smaller to mid-sized towns that are familiar with our brand,” stated Rob Streett, President and Chief Operating Officer of Scooter’s Coffee. “Columbus is already welcoming Scooter’s Coffee with open arms, and we are extremely humbled by the enthusiasm this community has expressed for their first Scooter’s location.”
Daria Springer and Kristen Stauffer will own this location. “Growing up in the rural surroundings between Columbus and Schuyler I am thrilled to be able to bring Scooter's to this area that I know and love,” said Daria. “We got involved with Scooter's because of our love of the product and brand. We felt like the folks in Columbus deserved to experience what other major Nebraska cities have been experiencing for years as customers of Scooter’s Coffee.”
With more than 150 stores open in 13 states, Scooter’s Coffee has signed agreements in two 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, which recently opened its first location in Arizona, boasts a robust grand opening pipeline. 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.
