OMAHA, Neb. – (January 23, 2024) Scooter’s Coffee, LLC, the Midwest-based drive-thru coffee franchise experiencing record-breaking growth, continues its expansion throughout the United States by bringing its world-class coffee to Rockford, Minnesota.

The expansion into the town just west of Minneapolis is the result of a franchise agreement signed by Josh and Kaiyah Herscheid. Josh describes himself and his wife as big entrepreneurs, always looking for new investments. “With this business venture, we wanted to do something that aligned with our passions,” said Josh. “We love coffee, and I’m from Nebraska, so I’m a fan of Scooter’s Coffee. My wife’s family is from Minnesota, so this opportunity was perfect for us.”

Scooter’s Coffee, based in Omaha, Nebraska, specializes in espresso drinks, fruit smoothies, and baked-from-scratch pastries and features its signature beverage, the Caramelicious®. The company also offers a wide selection for all taste profiles with its organic hot and iced teas, premium-grade brewed coffee, cold brew, breakfast items, and a kids’ menu.

According to the latest market trends compiled by the National Coffee Association, 63% of Americans drank coffee in the past day — more than any other beverage, including water. Those coffee drinkers each consume an average of 2.8 cups every day. Zippia Research reports that 60% of American coffee drinkers visit a coffee shop at least once a month.

Scooter’s Coffee’s proven 664 sq. ft. drive-thru-only kiosk model, combined with their fast, friendly service, allows customers to “scoot in” on their way to work or school to buy their favorite beverage and get their day off to a great start.

Josh and Kaiyah became parents last year. “It got me thinking about building a legacy, and I know Scooter’s Coffee will be something I can pass along to my family,” said Josh. “Plus, I love the thought of our business being a happy part of someone’s day.”

“Josh and Kaiyah Herscheid’s commitment to building a legacy through Scooter’s Coffee resonates with our brand’s values,” said Matt Sawicki, Senior Director of Franchise Development. “Their love for coffee and dedication to creating a positive impact in their community aligns perfectly with our mission. We’re excited to support their journey as they embark on this exciting venture.”
