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 central Pennsylvania.

The expansion is a result of a franchise agreement signed by husband-and-wife team, the Patels. Pennsylvania’s first Scooter’s Coffee will be built in one of the small towns adjacent to the western border of the Susquehanna River, an area referred to as West Shore. Mr. Patel first came across Scooter’s Coffee on a trip to North Carolina. He enjoyed the drive-thru experience and said his family has always dreamed of owning a business.

“I was impressed with the drive-thru model and the great customer service,” said Mr. Patel. “I started thinking about how well Scooter’s Coffee would do in my area.”

Scooter’s Coffee, based in Omaha, Nebraska, specializes in espresso drinks, fruit smoothies, 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 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.

“We share Scooter’s Coffee’s core values of integrity, love, humility, and courage,” said Mr. Patel. “We’re excited to introduce the Scooter’s Coffee brand to Pennsylvania.

“As we continue to expand our footprint across the United States, we are thrilled to partner with franchisees like the Patels, who share our values and vision,” said Matt Sawicki, Vice President of Franchise Sales. “Their entrepreneurial spirit and desire to build a legacy for their family resonate deeply with us. We are honored to have them as part of the Scooter’s Coffee family and are eager to see the positive impact they will make in central Pennsylvania.”
