Scooter’s Coffee Grows to New Market in North Carolina
National Franchise Signs Multi-Unit Agreement for Five Units in the Raleigh Area
May 21, 2020 // Franchising.com // OMAHA, Neb. - Scooter’s Coffee, LLC, the Midwest-based drive-thru coffee franchise that is on track for another record-breaking year of growth, is starting to grow its presence in North Carolina by bringing its world-class drive-thru coffee locations to Raleigh.
Scooter’s Coffee, based in Omaha, Nebraska, specializes in artisan espresso drinks, fruit smoothies, baked-from-scratch pastries and features its signature drink, the Caramelicious®. The company added depth to its profile last year with a new line of organic hot and iced teas, single-origin coffee and Cold Brew & Cream.
Americans love their coffee. The percentage of people in the U.S. who drink coffee daily is up to 64 percent in 2018, the highest since 2012. The use of drive-thru’s for coffee has slightly increased over the past five years. In 2019, 46 percent of people said they had purchased coffee using a drive-thru the day before. Scooter’s Coffee, with the Brand Promise of “Amazing People, Amazing Drinks… Amazingly Fast!®” is helping Americans meet that demand.
Scooter’s Coffee is extremely excited about expanding to new areas by adding locations in Raleigh. Rob Southerland signed a multi-unit agreement with Scooter’s Coffee.
Southerland has years of entrepreneur experience. Being from North Carolina, Southerland knows the market is ready for Scooter’s Coffee and the amazing product that will be offered.
“Everyone I have interacted with at Scooter’s Coffee has a smile on their face,” said Rob Southerland. “This is a great time to introduce the booming Raleigh area to such a great product, company and culture.”
In line with its successful and robust grand opening strategy, Scooter’s Coffee recently opened five locations throughout Kansas and Missouri, opened the second location in the state of Arkansas, and is opening additional locations in markets such as Dallas, Texas, and Denver, Colorado. The company is quickly surpassing 250 locations in 14 states and has over 200 franchise commitments to build new stores.
