About Scooter's Coffee

Don and Linda Eckles opened their first Scooter’s Coffee location in Bellevue, Nebraska, with a simple formula in mind: Find a great location and stay committed to high-quality drinks, speed of service and a BIG smile. Customers loved it. Soon, Scooter’s Coffee locations were opening all around the Omaha area and by 2001, Don and Linda chose to franchise to meet the growing demand for Scooter’s Coffee. We are now approaching 750 locations spread throughout the United States and are expecting to reach 1000 locations by 2024.

Franchise History

After watching the development of the specialty coffee industry in California, and seeing the introduction of the drive-thru coffee concept, they became convinced that there was high potential for a very successful business model. They had a vision of coupling the drive-thru coffee business with a commitment to a few key business principles. Having grown up in the Omaha area, they moved back to the Midwest and opened their first drive-thru coffeehouse in 1998 in Bellevue, Nebraska. Scooter's Coffee was born.  The keys to success were simple but so important: find a great location and stay committed to high quality drinks, speed of service, a clean store, and a big smile. The formula worked, and more stores were opened in the Omaha metro area. Don and Linda began franchising Scooter's Coffee in 2001. The first store in Bellevue, Nebraska is still open and operating and has become a staple in that community. Scooter's success over many years of history is very simple: Stay committed to the original business principles and company core values. The Scooter's Brand Promise, often recited to franchisees, customers and employees is: "Amazing People, Amazing Drinks...Amazingly Fast!™" It represents the company's business origins from 1998 and reflects a steady commitment to providing an unforgettable experience to their customers.
