Scooter’s Coffee to celebrate grand opening on Nov. 2

Scooter’s Coffee, known for its drive-thru specialty coffee and baked pastries, added a new location to the state of Kansas with the company’s debut store in Great Bend on 10th and Grant (3501 10th Street). To celebrate, the drive-thru coffee location will be hosting a grand opening on Saturday, Nov. 2. On this day, customers who pay or scan for loyalty on the Scooter’s Coffee mobile app will earn 50 bonus “smiles.”

With the app, customers earn three “Smiles” for every dollar spent, and once they reach 180 Smiles, they earn a free drink. All customers start in the Scooter Doodle status level, with perks that include a free drink on their birthday and one surprise reward per month, exclusive to the mobile app only. After earning 500 Smiles, customers move into the Caramelicious® status level with additional perks, including another surprise reward each month.

To pay with the app, customers simply need to link a credit card and tap “Pay in Stores” from the home screen. Then, if they choose to tip, they can select a custom amount or percentage prior to scanning their app. Customers also have the option to pay with cash or a gift card and still earn loyalty through the app by using the “Scan to Earn Loyalty” Only QR code. 

The new location is owned and operated by Donny and Lindsay Huber. The Huber’s also plan to open a location in Liberal by year end. 

“Lindsay and I were born and raised in Garden City and just recently opened our first Scooter’s Coffee location there,” said Donny. “Now opening our second location in Great Bend, it’s been amazing seeing the overwhelming support in both communities. We chose Scooter’s because their core values align perfectly with ours, and we can’t wait to share them within the communities we will be serving.” 

Scooter’s Coffee is a drive-thru franchise that has been around for more than 20 years and has more than 220 locations in 15 states across the nation. With over 200 franchise commitments to build new stores, the company plans to open many additional stores in 2019.
