Scooter’s Coffee to Celebrate Grand Opening at Historic 30th and Ames Location
Scooter’s Coffee Co-Founder Don Eckles Mentors Franchise Partner Julian Young
Mon Mar 19 2018 - The 30th and Ames location is the brainchild of two of Omaha’s business leaders, Scooter’s Coffee Co-founder Don Eckles and community leader Julian Young. What started with Eckles responding to a cold call for guidance and mentorship from Young, has blossomed into a friendship, and now a partnership, that will rejuvenate a neighborhood on the verge of a rebirth.
“The Scooter’s Coffee 30th and Ames location will serve as more than just a coffeehouse,” says Julian Young, Scooter’s Coffee Franchise Partner. “The 30th and Ames coffeehouse will operate as the nucleus of the economic revitalization effort in the historic North Omaha neighborhood. The buzz surrounding this opening is nothing short of intense and the neighborhood is ready to support this project. I’m looking forward to being an agent of change in a community that I hold close to my heart. I am thankful for Scooter’s Coffee for sharing in my vision and am humbled by their willingness to entrust me with this venture.”
“This new location represents the dawn of a new era for Scooter’s Coffee and the 30th and Ames community in North Omaha,” says Don Eckles, Scooter’s Coffee co-founder. “We discuss Scooter’s Coffee being comprised of ‘Amazing People’ and that is certainly the case with Julian. His hard work and determination will serve as the perfect example to the next generation of entrepreneurs. I’m anticipating great things from Julian and this partnership.”
