October 18, 2017 // Franchising.com // OMAHA, Neb. - Scooter’s Coffee, the Midwest-based coffee franchise that has experienced tremendous nationwide growth over the past year, is celebrating Veteran’s Day with a special promotion. On Saturday, November 11, customers with a valid military ID or proof of service will receive a free cup of coffee at all Scooter’s Coffee locations.
Scooter’s Coffee is proud to celebrate the men and women in the military who either bravely and honorably served or currently serve our country. That recognition extends to Mike Taylor, U.S. Army (Ret.) and owner of the Scooter’s Coffee location in The Colony, Texas.
Taylor served in the Army as a 91D-Operating Room specialist for four years before being honorably discharged. He is now taking the plunge as an entrepreneur, delivering hand-tamped espresso drinks, homemade pastries and Scooter’s Coffee’s signature drink, the Caramelicious®, to customers at the recently opened location just north of Dallas.
“One of the best things that’s happened to this country is we’ve learned to embrace our veterans,” says Taylor. “Veterans Day is a way to remember, honor and exalt the ideals of what it means to defend this country. Many men and women have given the ultimate sacrifice. I’m appreciative that we hold our veterans in high-esteem not only this day, but every day.”
Scooter’s Coffee proudly collaborates with VetFran – the resource providing access and opportunities in franchising to our nation’s veterans and their spouses -- to increase the number of veterans pursuing entrepreneurships. Veterans, like Taylor, receive $20,000 in product - coffee, cups, pastries - from Scooter’s Coffee. That’s nearly triple the amount of merchandise gifted to the typical franchisee.
Taylor’s Scooter’s Coffee location just opened in the town of The Colony in Spring of 2017. It’s a family affair; Mike’s wife, Cris, keeps the store running day-to-day as Operations Manager.
“Scooter’s Coffee is grateful for the service and sacrifices of the nation’s military,” says Todd Graeve, CEO of Scooter’s Coffee. “We’re thankful and honored to have Mike Taylor on our team. He is well-versed in working in an environment conducive to teamwork, hard work and community service which are values we take pride in at Scooter’s Coffee. Veterans are vital to our freedom and way of life in the United States. The free cup of coffee we’re offering this Veterans Day represents the appreciation we at Scooter’s Coffee have for the commitment active duty and retired military members contribute on behalf of our country.”
Americans love their coffee. The percentage of people in the U.S. who drink coffee daily is up to 62 percent in 2017. The National Coffee Association also recently discovered the percentage of Americans drinking coffee prepared outside of the home is at an all-time high of 46 percent in 2017. Scooter’s Coffee, with the Brand Promise of “Amazing People, Amazing Drinks…Amazingly Fast!”™ is helping Americans meet that demand.
