New Arnolds Park Location to Celebrate with Grand Opening on Friday, June 19
Arnolds Park, IA, June 8, 2020 – Scooter’s Coffee, best known for its convenient drive-thru specialty coffee and baked-from-scratch pastries, added a new location in Northern Iowa with the company’s new store at 312 S Hwy 71 in Arnolds Park. To celebrate, the drive-thru coffee location will be hosting a Grand Opening on Friday, June 19. On this day, customers who pay or scan for loyalty on the Scooter’s Coffee mobile app will earn 50 bonus smiles!
With the app, customers earn 3 “Smiles” for every dollar spent, and once they reach 180 Smiles, they earn a free drink. All customers start in the Scooter Doodle status level, with perks that include a free drink on their birthday and one surprise reward per month, exclusive to the mobile app only. After earning 500 Smiles, customers move into the Caramelicious® status level with additional perks, including another surprise reward each month.
The new location is owned and operated by Robb Steffes and Josh Morris. Steffes and Morris also have recently opened locations in Spirit Lake and Spencer. “We are so proud to open a Scooter’s Coffee location in Arnolds Park,” said Morris. “Growing up, visiting the lakes area as a kid, becoming a resident, and now owning a business in the community is truly an honor. We feel fortunate to be able to serve an amazing product, with amazing employees, amazingly fast in the Okoboji area to both residents and visitors.”
To pay with the app, customers simply need to link a credit card and tap “Pay in Stores” from the home screen. Then, if they choose to tip, they can select a custom amount or percentage prior to scanning their app. Customers also have the option to pay with cash or a gift card and still earn loyalty through the app by using the “Scan to Earn Loyalty” Only QR code.
The app also includes a “Gift Store” feature where customers can gift various drink or food options or a digital gift card to friends and family. In addition, the “Give $2, Get $2” feature allows customers to invite their friends to download the Scooter’s Coffee app for a $2 credit.
