Scooter’s Coffee Continues Growing in South Dakota

Multi-Unit Franchisee Signs Another Agreement with National Coffee Brand

OMAHA, Neb. – (November 2022) Scooter’s Coffee®, LLC, the Midwest-based drive-thru coffee franchise experiencing record-breaking growth across the U.S., is continuing its effort to expand its brand by bringing another of its world-class drive-thru coffee locations to Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Franchisee Travis Rhoades has signed an agreement to open an additional Scooter’s Coffee in Sioux Falls. He and his wife already own 11 stores in the area, the first of which opened in 2013. The husband-and-wife team also own another location in Nebraska.

“We had just had our first child and were looking for a business opportunity when we came across Scooter’s Coffee. The brand was already growing in our area,” said Rhoades. “We didn’t know anything about coffee, didn’t even drink it, but we understood the passion people have for it.”

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.

“The Scooter’s Coffee business model is simple to follow, and the cost of buying a franchise is very reasonable,” Rhoades said. “The decision to invest in Scooter’s Coffee has been a great one for our family.”

“Sioux Falls, South Dakota, has been an amazing area for Scooter’s Coffee,” said Kelly Crummer, Scooter’s Coffee Senior Director of Franchise Recruitment. “We are grateful to have talented franchisees like Travis Rhoades dedicated to spreading our brand across the area.”
