Mike Walker and Tom LeLievre will own this location. "From the first time we found Scooter's Coffee, we loved the way it worked. We had the opportunity to try the products in Nebraska, and we were hooked," said Mike. "We knew this was a brand to bring home and share with the rest of Central Florida."
The Rockledge Grand Opening marks the latest move in the company's extraordinary growth. With more than 150 stores open in 12 states, Scooter's Coffee has signed agreements in three additional states throughout the country and will open more than 40 locations from coast to coast in 2016. Over the next few months, the company boasts a robust grand opening pipeline, which includes its first-ever location in the state of Arizona. This summer, the company opened its first of many locations in Florida and added a second location to the Atlanta, GA metro area. It will also add several locations this year to expanding markets, such as Iowa, Kansas, Texas and Nebraska.
Scooter's, which is based out of Omaha, Nebraska, handcrafts its pastries and roasts its own 100% shade-grown coffee, sourced through Arbor Day Foundation. In 2016, the company also added depth to its product profile, releasing a new line of Organic Hot and Iced Teas earlier this summer. In addition to its nearly-100% gluten-free beverage menu, Scooter's will soon add gluten-free food items to its extensive menu.
