"We have been looking forward to opening a location in Rapid City for quite some time, and we are thrilled to bring our world-class coffee products to this world-class community."

The new location is owned by Drew and Jodi Purdy. "We are very pleased to open our first Scooter's Coffee location in Rapid City and the Black Hills," said Jodi. "Overall, the community response has been very positive. Given our geographic proximity to Nebraska, where Scooter's began, there is a great deal of brand recognition for many of our customers. We also have many friends and new customers trying us out as well, our family is looking forward to getting our other sites up and running!"
Following the Grand Opening, March 2 - March 16, 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. Acting as a digital punch card, customers earn smiley faces when they use the app for purchases, then can redeem their smiley faces for a free drink after collecting 12. 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.
