Local Couple Signs Multi-Unit Agreement with National Coffee Brand
OMAHA, Neb. – (APRIL 2022) – Scooter’s Coffee®, LLC, the Midwest-based drive-thru coffee franchise that is experiencing record-breaking growth, is continuing its effort to grow its presence throughout the United States by bringing its world-class drive-thru coffee locations to Riverview, Florida.
Scooter’s Coffee, based in Omaha, Nebraska, specializes in artisan espresso drinks, fruit smoothies, baked-from-scratch pastries and features its signature drink, the Caramelicious. The company also recently added depth to its profile with a line of organic hot and iced teas, single-origin coffee and Cold Brew & Cream.
The expansion in the Tampa Bay Area is the result of a three-unit franchise agreement signed by Angela and Jamie Bastian. When they moved to Florida a year ago, Jamie sold his rental property management business and started looking for new opportunities. “We had a friend who sang praises about Scooter’s Coffee so we did some research and discovered the company had so much potential,” said Angela. “The business model, how the company is run, and their core values were all very intriguing to us.”
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.
“Our goal was to find something that was unique to the area and that would help us connect with the community, as well as be a legacy business we could pass on to our children,” said Angela. “Scooter’s Coffee checked all those boxes.”
“We’re very excited to see Angela and Jamie Bastian join Scooter’s Coffee,” said Kelly Crummer, Scooter’s Coffee Senior Director of Franchise Recruitment. “They share our core values of integrity, love, humility, and courage. They’ll be a great addition to our franchise system.”
