Scooter’s Coffee Continues Growing in Illinois

Illinois Native Signs Multi-Unit Agreement with National Coffee Brand

January 05, 2023 // // OMAHA, Neb. - Scooter’s Coffee, LLC, the Midwest-based drive-thru coffee franchise experiencing record-breaking growth, continues its expansion throughout the United States by bringing another of its world-class drive-thru coffee locations to Southwest Illinois.

The new franchise, the result of a single-unit agreement signed by Illinois native Eric Huggins, will be located in Du Quoin, Illinois. Huggins owns nine sandwich shop franchises and was looking for something different. “There are two Scooter’s Coffee’s around here, so I started checking into it, and heard nothing but good things about the company.” said Huggins. “Plus, I liked the drive thru only concept as it’s hard to find employees here right now.”

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.

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.

“We are excited to onboard Eric Huggins as a Scooter’s Coffee Franchisee,” said Kelly Crummer, Scooter’s Coffee Senior Director of Franchise Recruitment. “With all his franchising experience, he will be able to help us increase our brand’s presence in Illinois and bring awareness to our great products and service.”
