Scooter’s Coffee Ranked a Top Franchise for Veterans by Entrepreneur Magazine

Nebraska-Based Drive-Thru Coffee Franchise Ranked No. 54 out of 150 Franchises

OMAHA, Neb. – Scooter’s Coffee®, a national drive-thru coffee franchise, was recognized as a Top Franchise for Veterans by Entrepreneur magazine. This is the second consecutive year the brand has been included on the list.

“At Scooter’s Coffee, it’s really important to us to give back to those who do so much for our country,” said Kelly Crummer, Senior Director of Franchise Development. “One of our company values is courage. There’s no group of people out there more courageous than veterans. It’s rewarding to see our opportunity be recognized by a reputable publication like Entrepreneur.”

Entrepreneur’s Top Franchises for Veterans ranking lists the top 150 franchises providing veteran incentives for qualified franchise candidates. Scooter’s Coffee, a proud member of VetFran, offers a $20,000 credit toward their first year of product for veterans.

To curate the Top Franchises for Veterans list, Entrepreneur invited franchise companies to participate in a survey so they could learn more about the Veteran incentives offered. After reviewing the surveys and taking into account the incentives each franchise offered, how veteran franchisees are supported, and where each brand stood on the 2022 Franchise 500, Entrepreneur narrowed the list to the final 150 franchise companies.

“Scooter’s Coffee is proud to support our country’s veterans,” said Crummer. “Veterans are some of the most qualified franchise candidates. They have incredible work ethic and drive. They truly embody all of our core values – not just courage – but also integrity, humility, and love. It’s our privilege to work with them every day at our brand. I believe I speak for everyone at Scooter’s Coffee when I say how much we look forward to bringing more veterans into our system in the future.”

At this time, Scooter’s Coffee has almost 600 locations across 28 states. In their system currently, the brand has 16 franchisees who are veterans or still actively serving our country.
