Scooter’s Coffee Builds Nebraska Presence
National Franchise Signs Agreement for Ogallala
Tue Jun 13 2017 - Scooter’s Coffee, based in Omaha, Nebraska, specializes in handcrafted pastries and features the signature drink, the Caramelicious. Scooter’s Coffee roasts its own shade-grown coffee, sourced through the Arbor Day Foundation. The company added depth to its profile last year with a new line of organic hot and iced teas, single-origin coffee and Cold Brew & Cream.
Americans love their coffee. The percentage of people in the U.S. who drink coffee daily is up to 62 percent in 2017. The National Coffee Association also recently discovered the percentage of Americans drinking coffee prepared outside of their home is at an all-time high of 46 percent in 2017. Scooter’s Coffee, with the core values of “Amazing People, Amazing Drinks…Amazingly Fast!™” is helping Americans meet that demand.
“We believe franchising with Scooter's is the right choice,” said Curt Van Laningham, Co-CEO of Vanfair Enterprises, Inc. “Their focus on family, community, and dedication to great service align with our corporation. We are excited to bring this opportunity to the Ogallala area."
"Curt and I wanted to provide a place for people to meet and enjoy themselves while being part of everything the community has to offer. It was important for us to develop a business that would adhere to local values and beliefs and Scooter's is the perfect fit," said Randy Fair, Co-CEO of Vanfair Enterprises, Inc.
Scooter’s Coffee is extremely excited about this expansion into a historically rich community. Scooter’s Coffee signed a one-unit agreement to establish a presence in Ogallala, known for its small-town charm, tourism and outdoor activities, including Lake McConaughy.
"We’ve seen Nebraskans welcome and embrace their home-grown brand of Scooter’s Coffee, and we’re excited to expand into another community in our home state,” says Rob Streett, Scooter’s Coffee President and COO. “We’re honored for the opportunity to bring our amazing products and amazingly fast service to Ogallala and look forward to getting to know the members of the community."
