Brothers Stephen and David Froscheiser will own this location. Their focus has primarily been on the Des Moines/Ames metropolitan area.

The West Des Moines grand opening marks the latest move in the company’s extraordinary growth. With more than 150 stores open in 13 states, Scooter’s Coffee has signed agreements in two additional states and will open more than 40 locations from coast to coast in 2016. The company is in the midst of a robust grand opening pipeline.

It will also add several locations this year to expanding markets, such as Nebraska, Kansas and Texas.
Scooter’s, which is based out of Omaha, Nebraska, handcrafts its pastries and roasts its own shade-grown coffee, sourced through Arbor Day Foundation. In 2016, the company also added depth to its product profile, releasing a new line of Organic Hot and Iced Teas during the summer.
