Franchisee Emily Harris grew up in Huntsville and is proud to announce that the first of her five Scooter’s Coffee franchises will open in Huntsville this July. Emily and her husband, Cole have another three franchises in Knoxville, Tennessee, the first of which opened in March. “I resigned from my corporate job to oversee the franchises,” said Emily. “I love working in the store, getting to know the guests. It’s such an upbeat atmosphere—the guests and the team members are all happy to be there.”

According to the latest market trends compiled by the National Coffee Association, 60 percent of Americans drank coffee in the past day. That’s more than reported drinking tea, juice, soda, or even tap water! And the number of people who reported buying coffee at a coffee shop or restaurant has risen 20% since January of 2021. The drive-thru coffee model, already popular in our fast-paced society, has boomed during the pandemic, giving customers a way to get a delicious beverage while staying socially distant. Scooter’s Coffee kiosks, with the Brand Promise of “Amazing People, Amazing Drinks… Amazingly Fast! ®” is helping Americans meet that demand.
