Scooter’s Coffee Continues Growing in Minnesota

Minnesota Natives Sign Multi-Unit Agreement with National Coffee Brand

OMAHA, Neb. – (November 2022) Scooter’s Coffee®, LLC, the Midwest-based drive-thru coffee franchise experiencing record-breaking growth, is continuing its effort to expand its presence throughout the U.S. by bringing its world-class drive-thru coffee locations to Princeton, Isanti, and Zimmerman, Minnesota.

The expansion into the towns about an hour north of Minneapolis is the result of a three-unit franchise agreement signed by Stephanie and Christopher Ewals. The Ewals are no strangers to franchising, having run a truck accessory franchise for years. On a visit to Washington state, they noticed the many coffee kiosks in the area and thought about opening one back home in Minnesota. “Rather than trying to figure out everything on our own, we decided to franchise with Scooter’s Coffee instead,” said Stephanie. “It’s such a great business model that we knew we’d be successful.”

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.

“We are both from Minnesota and we are excited to bring Scooter’s Coffee into these small towns and build a sense of community,” Stephanie said.

“Minneapolis, Minnesota, has been a great area for Scooter’s Coffee,” said Kelly Crummer, Scooter’s Coffee Senior Director of Franchise Recruitment. “We are excited to welcome new franchisees Stephanie and Christopher Ewals and know they will do a great job promoting our brand throughout the region.”
