Scooter’s Coffee Continues Growing in Illinois with Nine More Locations in the Southern Part of the State
August 10, 2022 // Franchising.com // OMAHA, Neb. - Scooter’s Coffee, LLC, the Midwest-based drive-thru coffee franchise that is experiencing record-breaking growth, is continuing its effort to grow its presence throughout the United States by bringing its world-class drive-thru coffee locations to Benton, Mount Carmel, Salem, Mount Vernon, West Frankfort, Harrisburg, Olney, Vandalia, and Centralia, Illinois.
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 also recently added depth to its profile with a line of organic hot and iced teas, single-origin coffee and Cold Brew & Cream.
The nine-unit expansion across Southern Illinois is the result of deals signed by Rachel Wallace and her business partner, Marcy Wallace (no relation.) Rachel has been in franchising for years; she owns 26 fast food franchises, a pizza/sports pub and a hotel.
“I was looking for diversification in my restaurant portfolio and I thought Scooter’s Coffee would be a good fit,” said Rachel. “It’s a great concept, and the product is high quality.”
According to the latest market trends compiled by the National Coffee Association, 60 percent of Americans drank coffee in the past day. That’s more than reported drinking tea, juice, soda, or even tap water! And the number of people who reported buying coffee at a coffee shop or restaurant has risen 20% since January of 2021. The drive-thru coffee model, already popular in our fast-paced society, has boomed during the pandemic, giving customers a way to get a delicious beverage while staying socially distant. Scooter’s Coffee kiosks, with the Brand Promise of “Amazing People, Amazing Drinks… Amazingly Fast! ®” is helping Americans meet that demand.
Two of the franchises, the Benton and West Frankford locations, were already established by Scooter’s Coffee before Rachel and Marcy bought them. Several others are being built on parcels of land that Rachel already owned. “Ironically, Scooter’s Coffee had been trying to contact me to buy the land, because they thought the sites would be perfect locations for their drive-through kiosks,” said Rachel.
“Southern Illinois has been a great area for Scooter’s Coffee,” says Kelly Crummer, Scooter’s Coffee Senior Director of Franchise Recruitment. “We are excited to onboard new franchisees and feel Rachel Wallace and Marcy Wallace will be a great addition to our system.”
