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 kiosks to Shelby, North Carolina.

The expansion into the area west of Charlotte, North Carolina, is a result of a franchise agreement signed by Rob and Brene Hegler of nearby Clover, South Carolina. “We’d been talking about starting a business together for a while now,” said Rob. “Brene tried Scooter’s Coffee on a visit with her sister in Illinois. “Brene’s a big coffee drinker and fell in love with Scooter’s Coffee — said we should open one.” The couple met with some local franchisees and saw what a great opportunity it was. “Scooter’s Coffee is really growing fast in the Carolinas, and I agreed with my wife that it would be the perfect business 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 CarameliciousÒ. 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.

Rob describes the franchise as their first big business adventure. “We’re a small business and trying to do what we can a little at a time. Once we figure out the process, we definitely want to open more.”

“We are excited to welcome Rob and Brene Hegler to the Scooter’s Coffee family as franchisees,” said Matt Sawicki, Senior Director of Franchise Development. “Their enthusiasm for our brand and dedication to delivering exceptional coffee experiences make them a perfect fit for our growing presence in North Carolina. We look forward to supporting their journey as they bring the Scooter’s Coffee culture to Shelby.”
