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 Helena, Montana.

The expansion is a result of a franchise agreement signed by Taylor Jeffries, his parents Kent and RaeAnnJeffries, and their business partner James Flikkema. The Jeffries family already owns four locations in eastern Wyoming near their home. James will be the local operations partner for the Scooter’s Coffee in Helena and surrounding area since he lives and grew up nearby..

“It was always part of the plan that we would open a Scooter’s Coffee in Montana,” said Taylor. “We love the area, and we own other businesses there, so we spend a lot of time in Montana.”

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.

“We were drawn to Scooter’s Coffee because they’re a family-oriented business, and their core values align with ours,” said Taylor. “Also, being from the Midwest, they understand the culture here better than if they were based in California or the East Coast.”

“We are thrilled to see our existing franchisees, the Jeffries family, along with James Flikkema, extend their Scooter’s Coffee journey into Helena, Montana,” said Matt Sawicki, Vice President of Franchise Sales. “Their understanding of our core values of Integrity, Love, Humility, and Courage, as well as their dedication to bringing our Midwest-rooted coffee culture to new regions, is instrumental in our continued growth and success.”
