Scooter’s Coffee, with the core values of “Amazing People, Amazing Drinks…Amazingly Fast!”™ is helping Americans meet that demand.
“I’ve always wanted to be in the coffee business, and fell in love with Scooter’s Coffee while living in Omaha.” said Brenda Morlan, owner of Kava Enterprises, LLC. “After moving to Johnston last year, we saw an opportunity and thought Scooter’s would be a great fit here. We’re very excited, as the Scooter’s Coffee culture of service, quality and community mirrors our values. We look forward to bringing this great coffee and unique service to Johnston and Ankeny!”
Scooter’s Coffee is extremely excited about this expansion into a bustling community. Scooter’s Coffee signed a three-unit agreement to bolster their presence in and around Iowa’s capital city. A low cost of living, strong job market and entertainment options makes Des Moines one of America’s best places to live and conduct business.
“We are excited to continue our expansion in Des Moines,” says Todd Graeve, Scooter’s Coffee Chief Executive Officer. “Central Iowa is vibrant and growing, and we want to fill a need for quality coffee served through a drive-thru window.
