We can’t wait to celebrate with all of our customers on our Grand Opening day!”
Following the Grand Opening, January 28 – February 10, the location will have a half off any drink discount available on the Scooter’s Coffee mobile app. The app allows customers to quickly pay for purchases by scanning a barcode linked to a registered Scooter’s Coffee gift card.
The app also includes a loyalty program and other features.

In addition, the app will enable customers to access special offers, view the nearest locations, browse the full Scooter’s Coffee menu and track purchases.
In line with their successful and robust grand opening strategy, Scooter’s Coffee recently opened five locations throughout Kansas and Missouri, opened the second of many locations in Arkansas and is opening additional locations in markets such as Phoenix, Arizona; Rapid City, South Dakota; Dallas, Texas; and Las Vegas, Nevada.
