FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
OMAHA, Neb. – (November 2022) – Scooter’s Coffee®, LLC, the Midwest-based drive-thru coffee franchise that’s experiencing record-breaking growth, is continuing its effort to grow throughout the U.S. by bringing its world-class drive-thru coffee locations to Harlin, Iowa.
Hannah and Mark Leiting will own the new Southwest Iowa location. “We have family members who are Scooter’s Coffee franchisees who’ve been very successful,” said Hannah. “We were very comfortable franchising with Scooter’s Coffee, as they share our core values.”
Scooter’s Coffee, based in Omaha, Nebraska, specializes in artisan espresso drinks, fruit smoothies, baked-from-scratch pastries and features its signature drink, the CarameliciousÒ. The company also recently added depth to its profile with a line of organic hot and iced teas, single-origin coffee and Cold Brew & Cream.
According to the latest market trends compiled by the National Coffee Association, 60% of Americans drank coffee in the past day. That’s more than reported drinking tea, juice, soda, or even tap water! And the number of people who reported buying coffee at a coffee shop or restaurant has risen 20% since January of 2021. The drive-thru coffee model, already popular in our fast-paced society, has boomed during the pandemic, giving customers a way to get a delicious beverage while staying socially distant. Scooter’s Coffee kiosks, with the brand promise of “Amazing People, Amazing Drinks… Amazingly Fast! ®,” are helping Americans meet that demand.
Currently, the couple lives in Lincoln, Nebraska, but is relocating to Harlan where their franchise will be located. Hannah grew up in Harlan, and her parents and grandmother still live there.
“We’re actually moving into my grandfather’s old house,” said Hannah. “This opportunity couldn’t have come at a better time. We have two girls, ages 7 and 3, and it’s important for me that they get to grow up near family.”
Scooter’s Coffee is equally excited about the opportunity to welcome the Leitings to the franchise family.
“We’re thrilled to see Mark and Hannah Leiting join Scooter’s Coffee,” said Kelly Crummer, Senior Director of Franchise Recruitment for Scooter’s Coffee. “They share our core values of integrity, love, humility, and courage. They’ll be a great addition to our franchise system.”
