About Scooter's Coffee

Founded in 1998 by Don and Linda Eckles in Bellevue, Nebraska, Scooter’s Coffee roasts only the finest coffee beans in the world at its headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska. Scooter's success over 20 years of history is simple: stay committed to the original business principles and company core values. The Scooter's Brand Promise, often recited to franchisees, customers and employees is: "Amazing People, Amazing Drinks...Amazingly Fast!™" It represents the company's business origins from 1998 and reflects a steady commitment to providing an unforgettable experience to loyal customers.

Company History

After watching the development of the specialty coffee industry in California, and seeing the introduction of the drive-thru coffee concept, they became convinced that there was high potential for a very successful business model. They had a vision of coupling the drive-thru coffee business with a commitment to a few key business principles. Having grown up in the Omaha area, they moved back to the Midwest and opened their first drive-thru coffeehouse in 1998 in Bellevue, Nebraska. Scooter's Coffee was born. 

The keys to success were simple but so important: find a great location and stay committed to high quality drinks, speed of service, a clean store, and a big smile. The formula worked, and more stores were opened in the Omaha metro area. Don and Linda began franchising Scooter's Coffee in 2001.

Scooter's Coffee is approaching 200 locations open and operating in 16 states across the country. The first store in Bellevue, Nebraska is still open and operating and has become a staple in that community. Scooter's success over many years of history is very simple: Stay committed to the original business principles and company core values. The Scooter's Brand Promise, often recited to franchisees, customers and employees is: "Amazing People, Amazing Drinks...Amazingly Fast!™" It represents the company's business origins from 1998 and reflects a steady commitment to providing an unforgettable experience to their customers.
