Location to Celebrate Grand Opening with Half Off Any Drink


Thu Nov 10 2016 - Scottsbluff, NE – Scooter’s Coffee, the Midwest-based coffee franchise that has experienced tremendous growth over the past year, will increase their presence in western Nebraska with the company’s first-ever location in Scottsbluff (3301 Avenue B). On Friday, November 11, the new drive-thru coffee shop will celebrate its grand opening with half off drinks all day.


“We have enjoyed watching the Scooter’s brand thrive and grow in our home state of Nebraska,” said Rob Streett, President and Chief Operating Officer of Scooter’s Coffee. “This enthusiasm that has been expressed about this location is another sign of the fantastic support we have here from our home communities.”

On November 11, Grand Opening Day, customers can also expect to receive several fun giveaways; beginning at 9 a.m., the first 100 customers will receive a free t-shirt. For the afternoon crowd, starting at 2 p.m., the first 100 customers will receive a $5 gift card.

To continue the celebration, the location will be holding a week-long promotion (November 14 – November 18) with half off any drink from 4 p.m. to close (excluding Vertigo Smoothies).

Gary Rimington owns this location. “The Scottsbluff and Gering communities have already shown great support and interest in the Scooter’s Coffee brand,” said Gary. “I look forward to seeing the excitement grow as customers get to experience the quality and taste of our products.”

The Scottsbluff 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 recently opened its first location in Phoenix, AZ, added a second location to the Atlanta, GA, metro area and also opened its second of many locations in the state of Florida. 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. In addition to its nearly-100% gluten-free beverage menu, Scooter's recently added gluten-free brownies to its extensive menu.
