Drive-Thru Coffee Franchise Listed Among Top Food Brands in 2020

OMAHA, Neb. (August 25, 2020) — For more than two decades, Scooter’s Coffee® has grown in its mission to become one of the nation’s most reliable coffee brands. That goal has become reality, especially considering the success in recent years. That success was honored yet again, this time in the August issue of Entrepreneur.

The business magazine and website listed 500 of the country’s top franchises. Not only did Scooter’s Coffee make that list, but was named one of the top 200 food franchises, making the top three in the coffee category.

The list was comprised based on 150 data points, including cost and fees, size and growth, franchisee support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability.

“As dining rooms were shut down in response to the coronavirus pandemic,” the Entrepreneur article reads, “food franchisors rose to the occasion, quickly finding ways to keep serving customers and communities and help their franchisees survive—and, in some cases, even thrive.”

Scooter’s Coffee was a brand that was well-positioned to thrive. Its drive-thru model fit the need for limited contact during the pandemic. More importantly, it allowed the popular Midwest-based brand to continue meeting its longstanding commitment to quality coffee and service.

“Our brand is incredibly important to us, not only for the customers we serve each day but for the franchisees that make our growth possible,” said Tim Arpin, Vice President of Franchise Sales. “Living up to our promise of ‘Amazing People, Amazing Drinks, Amazingly Fast’ is key to continuing our strong standing in the franchise business.”
