OMAHA, Neb.– Scooter’s Coffee LLC, the Midwest-based drive-thru coffee franchise, is continuing its effort to grow its presence throughout the United States by bringing its drive-thru coffee locations to Cullman, Alabama and the surrounding area.

Scooter’s Coffee, based in Omaha, Nebraska, specializes in artisan espresso drinks, fruit smoothies, baked-from-scratch pastries and features its signature drink, the “Caramelicious.” The company also recently added depth to its profile with a line of organic hot and iced teas, single-origin coffee and Cold Brew & Cream.

The expansion into two Alabama communities comes as a result of a two-unit agreement recently signed by local business owner Kathryn Neese. The Cullman location is currently in development, while plans for a location in Decatur will be underway in the near future. As residents of the area, she and her family know the value of an accessible, quick flavorful cup of coffee.

“Scooter’s is so highly regarded in the franchise world, and I’m a coffee lover, so it really piqued my interest,” Neese said of her decision. “Its model is unique, and I think it’s going to be really well received in our area. I’ve had experience commuting an hour to and from work and I know how beneficial it can be to grab a cup of coffee and be on your way.”

“I wanted to find a business that served my family’s core values and the values of our town,” she said. “Scooter’s Coffee often talks about courage, humility, integrity and love. I want to be a mentor and help grow young leaders here. The more I learned about Scooter’s Coffee, the more it felt like the best fit for this community.”

In line with its successful grand opening strategy, the company reached a major milestone in 2020 by surpassing the 300-location mark across 17 states with commitments for stores in 24 additional states.

“Scooter’s Coffee is a great addition to the Cullman community,” said Tim Arpin, Scooter’s Coffee vice president of franchise Sales. “The word has spread about Scooter’s Coffee and the excitement is building, and we’re thrilled to have such ardent supporters of local business leading our expansion into this area.”
