High School Teacher Signs 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 Troy, Illinois
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 city on the edge of the St. Louis metro area is the result of a single-unit franchise agreement signed by Eryn Wissler. After 22 years as a high school teacher, Wissler was looking for something different. “I’ve noticed Scooter’s Coffee popping up here and there and people were raving about it,” said Wissler. “I thought it would be a great franchise so I reached out to the company and I’ve liked everything I’ve heard since then.”
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.
“The Scooter’s Coffee organization has offered me so much support and encouragement that I feel like I’ll have no problem making the transition from education,” said Wissler.
“Our brand is a great addition to Troy, Illinois,” said Kelly Crummer, Scooter’s Coffee Senior Director of Franchise Recruitment. “As Scooter’s Coffee continues to grow, excitement builds when we enter a new area of the country. We’re elated to have such enthusiastic franchisees contributing to our expansion
