Scooter’s Coffee, LLC, the Midwest-based drive-thru coffee franchise experiencing record-breaking growth, continues its expansion throughout the United States by bringing one of its world-class coffee kiosks to northeastern Louisiana.

Alexandria residents David and Angela Hesser signed the franchise agreement for a Scooter’s Coffee location in West Monroe, Louisiana. Their son, Mark, who lives in West Monroe, will manage the franchise.

David searched for an opportunity that could bring the entire family together in a common venture for the family’s future. “I researched every franchise out there. I probably had 100 or more Franchise Disclosure Documents saved on my computer,” said David. “I was impressed by Scooter’s Coffee’s transparency — they provided more data on items like the volume of sales and the profitability of the business than I found in most of the FDDs I looked at.”

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

The Hessers are excited to bring Scooter’s Coffee to the growing community of West Monroe. “Scooter’s Coffee has a better product and a better business model than other coffee places,” said David. “I timed how long it took to get my order on my last visit to a corporate coffee place. It took more than 22 minutes.”

“David’s meticulous research into franchising led him to Scooter’s Coffee, and we couldn’t be more proud to have the Hessers join our growing family of franchisees,” said Matt Sawicki, Vice President of Franchise Sales. “Their enthusiasm for our business model and dedication to bringing a superior coffee experience to West Monroe is exactly what Scooter’s Coffee is all about.”
