OMAHA, Neb. (May 14, 2021) – Scooter’s Coffee, one of the nation’s fastest-growing coffee brands, is continuing its climb in the industry by building off its best calendar year to date. The Midwest-based drive-thru coffee franchise recently released its 2021 Franchise Disclosure Document, providing a look into its system and sales growth during 2020.
The franchise grew by almost 50 locations in 2020 on its way to reaching the 300-store milestone, while experiencing historic same-store sales growth. Compared to the year before, Scooter’s Coffee stores saw an increase of more than 26%.
“We have always been confident that the Scooter’s Coffee model was one that could not only drive sustainable profit margins but could provide amazing value to our customers,” said Scooter’s Coffee Vice President of Franchise Sales, Tim Arpin. “When compiling our data from this past year, it’s clear we have done just that. We’re extremely proud to have had an impact with our customers and to have provided security to our franchisees, along with optimism and excitement to those considering franchising with Scooter’s Coffee in the future.”
The onset of a public health crisis introduced challenges levied on businesses of all shapes and sizes. Still, Scooter’s Coffee’s model of small drive-thru kiosks provided customers with an outlet to fill their demands for their favorite drinks with efficient, safe service.
Diving deeper into the same-store sales growth figures, stores built around the drive-thru kiosk model experienced 31% growth. The top quartile among those stores saw an average unit volume just shy of $1 million thanks to their essential function. And while dine-in options were severely hampered, Scooter’s Coffee stores built as coffeeshop models still saw growth as well compared to the year before.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to report such impressive growth, especially given the challenges introduced in 2020,” said Arpin. “We’re most proud of the fact that it emphasizes the trust our brand has with customers. Everyone watched their spending last year, and yet so many customers saw our products and service worthy of their dollar. That’s incredibly exciting for the brand, its franchisees, and those looking to join the Scooter’s Coffee family going forward.”
