Scooter's Coffee Adds Fourth Location to Cedar Rapids, IA
New Store to Celebrate Grand Opening on March 2 with $1 Small Drinks
February 26, 2018 // Franchising.com // Cedar Rapids, IA - Scooter's Coffee, the Midwest-based coffee franchise that has experienced tremendous growth over the past year, added its fourth location in Cedar Rapids, the 18th location in the state of Iowa, with the company's latest opening at 6600 Kirkwood Blvd. SW. To celebrate, the location will be hosting a Grand Opening on Friday, March 2, with $1 small drinks and half off medium and large drinks.
"Our neighboring state of Iowa is a great place to continue the expansion of our coffee company," stated Mike Rogers, Chief Operating Officer of Scooter's Coffee. "The Cedar Rapids community mirrors the Midwestern ideals that we value so much, and we are thrilled to bring our fourth location to the city."
On Grand Opening Day, customers can expect to receive several fun giveaways:
- 10 a.m. - First 100 customers will receive a free $5 gift card with purchase
- 1 p.m. - First 50 customers will receive a free Scooter's mug with purchase
- 4 p.m. - First 50 customers will receive a free Scooter's t-shirt with purchase
The new location is owned by Brent and Carissa Votroubek. "My husband and I own another national franchise and decided we wanted to branch out into a different industry as well," said Carissa. "We both love coffee and felt that with the brand recognition already in Cedar Rapids, Scooter's would be the perfect fit. We really admire the partnership they have with the Arbor Day foundation and everything they are doing to preserve the rainforest with shade-grown coffee. We also like the built-in structure of a franchise, but the flexibility Scooter's provides to make it our own. Being a part of the Scooter's family has allowed us to create a business in an industry we love."
In addition, in celebration of this new store opening, the location will be treating customers to a Week of Specials following the Grand Opening event on March 2. The Week of Specials includes the following:
- Monday, March 5 - Half Off Caramelicious®
- Tuesday, March 6 - Half Off Mocha or White Mocha
- Wednesday, March 7 - Half Off Fruit Smoothies
