Father and Son Signs Multi-Unit Agreement with National Coffee Brand
OMAHA, Neb. – (October 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 Sanford, Holly Springs, and Fayetteville, North Carolina.
The expansion is the result of a seven-unit franchise agreement signed by Brice Andracchio and his father, Vince. The two men have owned many restaurant franchises over the years and a friend suggested Scooter’s Coffee might be a good investment for them “Unlike fast-food where your customers come in once or twice a month, coffee drinkers are habitual. You may see them two or three times a week,” said Brice.
They researched Scooter’s Coffee and were impressed with the way the company did business. “We discovered that Scooter’s Coffee shared our values in regard to treating their employees the right way, as well as their commitment customer service,” said Brice. “At the end of the day making the customer happy is paramount to our success.”
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.
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.
Brice and his father decided on the Fayetteville market because it’s home to the U.S. Army’s Ft. Bragg. “We own a fast-food franchise in Jacksonville near Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and we found it very rewarding serving the military community, the people willing to sacrifice to make our country a better place,” said Brice. “We want to do the same for the soldiers at Ft. Brag and their families.
“The Fayetteville area is a great market for our brand,” said Kelly Crummer, Scooter’s Coffee Senior Director of Franchise Recruitment. “We are excited that Brice and Vince Andracchio have decided to open their franchisees there, as they share our core values of integrity, love, humility, and courage.”
