Son and Daughter of Long-Time 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 Plano, Texas.
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 into the suburb of Dallas is the result of a three-unit franchise agreement signed by Taylor and Travis Newgard, and their father, Rob. Thirteen years ago, when Taylor and Travis were in their teens, their parents bought the 40th ever Scooter’s franchise, eventually opening a total of three in the Omaha suburb of Elkhorn. “We grew up watching them and we saw the success the Scooter’s Coffee model can bring,” said Taylor. “The company is growing really fast right now, so Travis and I figured the time was right to start our own franchises. We decided on the Plano market, because he lives there, but I will be moving down there soon.”
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.
“We’ve always been tight-knit family, but as Travis and I started our professional lives, we’ve been pulled in opposite directions. I’m very excited to work on something together that will keep us close,” said Taylor.
“The Dallas area has been a great market for Scooter’s Coffee,” says Kelly Crummer, Scooter’s Coffee Senior Director of Franchise Recruitment. “We are excited to onboard new franchisees and feel Taylor and Travis Newgard, as second-generation franchisees, will be a great addition to our system.”
