Scooter’s Coffee to Double Presence in Cedar Rapids
National Franchise to Open Next Coffee Drive-Thru Before Year-End
Wed Aug 16 2017 - “Since arriving in Cedar Rapids in May 2016, we couldn’t feel more at home in this tight-knit community,” says Rob Streett, President and COO. “We’re pleased that Cedar Rapids has responded so well to our specialty coffee and outstanding speed-of-service. We can’t wait to become even more engrained in the community.”
Scooter’s Coffee signed the Multi-Unit Development agreement for three locations with Brent & Carissa Votroubek.
"Coffee is something we both love! It truly is a part of our daily routine. When Scooter’s opened in our area over a year ago we realized that this was our chance to get into the coffee industry with a company that is the perfect fit for our company,” says Carissa Votroubek. “As our business and family continue to grow, we want to build a legacy that will be carried on from generation to generation. And we believe that the Scooter’s franchise will help us make that happen."
The Votroubeks hope to have their first location open before the end of the year.
Scooter’s Coffee is quickly approaching 200 locations in 15 states. It opened 33 new locations in 2016 and plans similar expansion in 2017. The company is in the midst of a robust grand opening pipeline. It recently opened additional locations in San Antonio, Texas and Sacremento, California. Other expanding markets include Nevada, Arkansas, Colorado and Texas.
Scooter’s Coffee, based in Omaha, Nebraska, specializes in hand-tamped espresso drinks, baked-from-scratch pastries and features their signature drink, the Caramelicious. Scooter’s roasts its own shade-grown coffee, sourced through the Arbor Day Foundation. The company added depth to its product profile last year with a new line of hot and iced organic teas, single-origin coffee and Cold Brew & Cream. This year, some of Scooters’ latest product innovations include Shaken Refreshers and Tropical Red Bull Infusions.
Americans love their coffee. The percentage of people in the U.S. who drink coffee daily is up to 62 percent in 2017.

Scooter’s Coffee, with the core values of “Amazing People, Amazing Drinks…Amazingly Fast!”™ is helping Americans meet that demand.
