New Scooter’s Coffee Location in Lenexa to Celebrate Grand Opening
77th & Quivira Location to Donate 100% of Proceeds on September 21 to The Victory Project
September 17, 2018 // Franchising.com // Lenexa, KS - Scooter’s Coffee, the Midwest-based coffee franchise that has experienced tremendous growth over the past year, will increase its Kansas presence with the company’s latest opening at 7741 Quivira Road in Lenexa on Monday, September 17. The new location will host a Day of Giving as part of its Grand Opening celebration on Friday, September 21. On that day, 100% of proceeds will be donated to The Victory Project, an initiative from Sporting Kansas City that unites players, staff and fans to help children battling cancer. In addition, the store will also be offering half off any drink (excluding Red Bull drinks) to customers.
This donation day is the seventh Day of Giving in a season-long collaboration in which Scooter’s Coffee will not only raise money for The Victory Project but also help raise awareness for the program.
“Providing support and resources to families during a time when they have a child facing a cancer battle is our goal,” said Brandi Thomas, Executive Director of The Victory Project. “The Victory Project is very thankful for the continued support from Scooter’s Coffee. The funds raised during the grand opening will allow us to continue impacting the lives of children battling cancer.”
To enhance the partnership, Scooter’s Coffee created #CoffeeKicksCancer days where 20% of proceeds from area Kansas City locations are donated to Sporting Club and the foundation.
“The opportunity to partner with a quality foundation like The Victory Project just made sense for myself and the brand. We see this as a great way to reach out to those in our community who are battling the difficult circumstance of childhood cancer. We want them to know that we care and we are supporting them during a difficult time in their life,” stated Tracy Bouwens, one of the owners of Freedom Enterprises, which owns many Scooter’s Coffee Kansas City locations. “Most of us have been touched or affected by the struggles and heartache of cancer, whether it’s personally, a family member or a close friend. My mother-in-law passed away at the age of 45 from cancer. That was tough, to say the least. But when cancer affects a child, it is absolutely heart-wrenching.”
On Grand Opening Day, Friday, September 21, customers can expect to receive several fun giveaways:
- 9 a.m. – First 100 customers will receive a free Scooter’s Coffee t-shirt with purchase
- 3 p.m. – First 100 customers will receive a free $5 gift card with purchase
In line with their successful and robust grand opening strategy, Scooter’s Coffee recently opened five locations throughout Kansas and Missouri, opened the first of many locations in Arkansas and is opening additional locations in markets such as Phoenix, Arizona; Rapid City, South Dakota; Dallas, Texas; and Las Vegas, Nevada.
