Before committing to any specific franchise, you’ll want to carefully analyze your small town to make sure there’s space for your business and demand for your services. A reputable franchisor will help you analyze the market to determine where to best locate your franchise so you have the greatest opportunity for success.
Curious what it truly means to own a business in a small town? According to the U.S. Census Bureau a small city or town has a population of less than 5,000 people. Midsized cities typically have populations ranging between 5,000 and 10,000 people. At Scooter’s Coffee®, we consider a small town to have between 4,000 to 15,000 residents. That may seem like quite a range, but a market of 4,000 to 10,000 people is ideal for one of our drive-thru coffee kiosks. For two locations, a town of 10,000+ is best. However, as we continue to grow our brand across the U.S., we do have our sites set on towns as small as 3,900 people!
At Scooter’s Coffee, we offer a unique coffee franchise opportunity. Our compact coffee kiosk model is a drive-thru only location that serves all of our amazing specialty coffee and food items. With our smaller storefront, franchisees are able to take advantage of affordable payroll and ongoing maintenance costs. Plus, our small footprint can fit where larger, traditional coffeehouses can’t – making our brand the best franchise to open in a small town.
Scooter’s Coffee has nearly 600 locations across the country with many more in development. We’ve identified several territories throughout the U.S. that show to be promising areas for our concept – many of which are small towns.
Interested franchise candidates should have a net worth of $500,000 with $200,000 in liquidity. To own a Scooter’s Coffee, the initial investment ranges between $797,000 and $1,341,500, which includes our franchisee fee of $40,000.
