Scooter’s Coffee Growing Again in Tennessee
National Franchise Signs Multi-Unit Agreement for Three Units in Knoxville
October 19, 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 continuing its effort to grow its presence in the Southeast by bringing its world-class drive-thru coffee locations to Knoxville, Tennessee.
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 United States who drink coffee daily is up to 64 percent in 2018, the highest since 2012. The use of drive-thru’s for coffee was already on the upward trend but has skyrocketed recently. Scooter’s Coffee, with the Brand Promise of “Amazing People, Amazing Drinks… Amazingly Fast!®” is helping Americans meet that demand.
This additional growth in Knoxville is very exciting for Scooter’s Coffee. The coffee brand is expanding by three units with a multi-unit agreement recently signed by Emily and Cole Harris.
While searching for an opportunity to start a franchise, the couple found a website naming Scooter’s Coffee one of the fastest-growing franchises. After months of research, Emily and Cole knew they had found a brand with values that aligned with their own.
“We had great conversations with everyone during the process,” said Emily Harris. “The leadership is very genuine, and we love that the people behind the brand are trustworthy.”
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 280 locations in 17 states and has commitments for stores in 24 additional states.
“This is an area that will benefit greatly from the drive-thru concept,” said Tim Arpin, Scooter’s Coffee Vice President of Franchise Sales. “We are so excited to welcome Emily and Cole Harris to the Scooter’s Coffee family.”
