January 31, 2017 // Franchising.com // Overland Park, KS – Scooter’s Coffee, LLC, the Midwest-based drive-thru coffee franchise that is on track for another record-breaking year of growth, will increase its Kansas presence with the company’s latest Grand Opening at 127th & Pflumm (12551 Pflumm Road) on Friday, February 3. To celebrate the opening, the new location will offer $1 medium drinks all day (excludes Vertigo Smoothies).
“We’re thrilled to see our brand continue to grow in Kansas,” stated Rob Streett, President and Chief Operating Officer of Scooter’s Coffee. “The Overland Park community has always welcomed us with open arms, and they share our friendly, Midwestern values and appreciation for a good cup of coffee served with a smile.”
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 free t-shirt or coffee mug. For the afternoon crowd, starting at 2 p.m., the first 100 customers will receive a $5 gift card.
In celebration of this new store opening, the location will also be treating customers to Free Food Fridays each Friday from February 10 through March 3, where customers can enjoy a complimentary food item with the purchase of any drink (while supplies last).
This location is owned by Freedom Enterprises. “We got involved with Scooter's because I 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 where we could make an impact in our community,” said Tracy Bouwens, one of the four Freedom owners. “When we met the founders of Scooter's, Don & Linda Eckles, we knew immediately that this company was a fit for us.”
