Scooter’s Coffee, LLC, a thriving Midwest-based drive-thru coffee franchise, is on a remarkable growth trajectory, with plans to expand its footprint across the United States. The latest news highlights their expansion into Mississippi and North Carolina, driven by franchise agreements with enthusiastic entrepreneurs.
Mississippi Expansion: A Testament to Local Entrepreneurship
Scooter’s Coffee is making its mark in Mississippi with two new drive-thru coffee locations in Gluckstadt and Madison, on the north side of Jackson. The expansion is the result of a two-unit franchise agreement signed by lifelong Mississippi residents, Brandon and Chelsea Hannah. Raised in families of small-business owners, the Hannahs are driven by a desire to innovate and create. Brandon was particularly drawn to Scooter’s Coffee’s business model due to its potential for growth and success. He noted, “The drive-thru coffee industry is thriving, and being a part of a brand like Scooter’s Coffee that emphasizes community, quality, and customer satisfaction is truly exciting.”
For the Hannahs, their journey with Scooter’s Coffee is deeply personal. As parents of a 4-year-old, they understand the importance of a good cup of coffee in their daily routines. Chelsea remarked, “When we discovered Scooter’s Coffee, we saw an opportunity to not only indulge in that love but also to bring a high-quality coffee experience to our local community.”
Scooter’s Coffee, headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska, is renowned for its artisan espresso drinks, fruit smoothies, baked-from-scratch pastries, and its signature drink, the Caramelicious®. The company continues to diversify its offerings, recently introducing a line of organic hot and iced teas, single-origin coffee, and Cold Brew & Cream.
Market trends, as reported by the National Coffee Association, reveal that 60% of Americans consumed coffee in the past day, with 28% purchasing coffee from coffee shops or restaurants. The drive-thru coffee model, particularly popular during the pandemic for its convenience and safety, aligns perfectly with Scooter’s Coffee’s Brand Promise of “Amazing People, Amazing Drinks… Amazingly Fast!®.”
Brandon and Chelsea’s alignment with Scooter’s Coffee’s core values, which include Integrity, Love, Humility, and Courage, was a significant factor in their decision to join the franchise. Matt Sawicki, Scooter’s Coffee Senior Director of Franchise Development, expressed his excitement about welcoming the Hannahs into the Scooter’s Coffee family and their potential to make a positive impact in Gluckstadt and Madison.
North Carolina Expansion: Entrepreneurs with Vision
Scooter’s Coffee is also venturing into North Carolina, specifically the area northeast of Charlotte, through a two-unit franchise agreement signed by Binit Patel and Jaiminkumar “Jaimin” Patel. These long-time friends, with a decade of friendship under their belts, decided it was time to embark on their entrepreneurial journey. Both had prior experience running businesses, with Jaimin managing a liquor store and Binit overseeing a convenience store. Recognizing the substantial coffee market in the U.S., they explored coffee franchise opportunities and found that Scooter’s Coffee’s kiosk model was not only efficient but also required a lower initial investment.
Scooter’s Coffee’s menu offerings, which include artisan espresso drinks, fruit smoothies, freshly baked pastries, and the beloved Caramelicious®, drew the Patels’ interest. The company’s recent expansion into organic hot and iced teas, single-origin coffee, and Cold Brew & Cream further added to its appeal.
The National Coffee Association’s market trends report underscores the enduring popularity of coffee in the United States, with 60% of Americans consuming coffee in the past day and 28% purchasing coffee from coffee shops or restaurants. The drive-thru coffee model, with its emphasis on convenience and safety, has resonated with customers, and Scooter’s Coffee’s Brand Promise of “Amazing People, Amazing Drinks… Amazingly Fast!®” aligns perfectly with this trend.
Jaimin and Binit have ambitious plans to relocate from New Jersey to North Carolina to operate their stores. Their long-term vision includes expanding into multiple stores as their business grows. Matt Sawicki, Senior Director of Franchise Development, expressed his excitement about having Jaimin Patel and Binit Patel join the Scooter’s family, highlighting their drive and previous business experience as assets to the company.
