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

Three of the new locations will serve the suburbs of Lincoln, Nebraska, while the other two will be located near Oklahoma City. These stores bring the total number of Scooter’s Coffee locations owned by franchisees Jason and Rita Metcalf to 37. The mother-and-son team has been franchising with Scooter’s Coffee since 2005. “Mom discovered Scooters in Omaha 20 years ago and loved it,” said Jason. “She’d always dreamed of running a coffee shop, and asked me to go into business with her. We opened the 22nd Scooter’s Coffee franchise.”

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.

With more than three dozen franchises, Jason and his mother have gone from running a coffee shop to running a business. “We can’t be in all the stores at once, so we rely on talented people to manage the day-to-day,” said Jason. “We focus on developing people. If you only emphasize profits, you’re not going to have a company people want to work for. It’s the people who make the business. We wouldn’t be where we are today without our incredible employees.”

“The Metcalfs’ success story is a shining example of what it means to be part of the Scooter’s Coffee family,” said Matt Sawicki, Vice President of Franchise Sales. “Their commitment to nurturing their team and creating a positive work environment has not only contributed to their impressive growth but has also enriched the Scooter’s Coffee community in Nebraska and Oklahoma.”
