Existing Franchisees Sign Multi-Unit Agreement with National Coffee Brand
OMAHA, Neb. – (March 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 upstate South Carolina, the midlands of South Carolina, and the Augusta, Georgia/Aiken South Carolina area.
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 is the result of a seven-unit franchise agreement signed by Andrew Reed and Joseph Walker III. This will give Reed and Walker a total of 32 Scooter’s Coffee Franchises, as they previously signed an agreement for 25 stores in September. They’d been looking for a solid concept to grow in South Carolina and kept hearing about drive-thru only coffee. “After one phone call with the Scooter’s Coffee leadership team we immediately knew we wanted to partner with this brand,” said Walker.
“Their values and culture aligned with ours,” added Reed. “When you sign on with a franchise it’s similar to a marriage, you have to trust your partner and you need to have each’s others best interests in mind. Scooter’s Coffee truly prioritizes franchisee success.
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.
“Scooter’s Coffee’s mission “to create an AMAZING experience for each life we touch” is not solely for our customers. It also means creating amazing experiences and life-changing opportunities for our employees,” said Andrew Reed. “Creating those experiences and opportunities for our team has always been what fires us up and drives us to go to work every day, so we’re very excited to partner with a brand that feels the same way.”
“We’re very excited that existing Scooter’s Coffee Franchisees Andrew Reed and Joseph Walker III have agreed to open another seven locations,” said Kelly Crummer, Scooter’s Coffee Senior Director of Franchise Recruitment. “They share our core values of integrity, love, humility, and courage.”
