Scooter’s Coffee, LLC, the Midwest-based drive-thru coffee franchise experiencing record-breaking growth, continues its expansion throughout the United States by bringing its world-class coffee kiosks to Lisle, Illinois.
The expansion into the small town 30 miles west of Chicago is a result of a franchise agreement signed by Tom and Abbie Diamantopoulos. Tom, a medical device sales representative, serves a territory that includes several midwestern states. “On my trips to Missouri, I noticed Scooter’s Coffee kiosks popping up all over the place. We didn’t have anything like it back home, and I figured it would be a big hit,” says Tom. “The values the brand represented, especially their integrity, made it a good fit for Abbie and me.”
Scooter’s Coffee, based in Omaha, Nebraska, specializes in espresso drinks, fruit smoothies, baked-from-scratch pastries and features its signature beverage, the Caramelicious. The company also offers a wide selection for all taste profiles with its organic hot and iced teas, premium-grade brewed coffee, cold brew, breakfast items, and a kids’ menu.
According to the latest market trends compiled by the National Coffee Association, 63% of Americans drank coffee in the past day — more than any other beverage, including water. Those coffee drinkers each consume an average of 2.8 cups every day. Zippia Research reports that 60% of American coffee drinkers visit a coffee shop at least once a month.
Scooter’s Coffee’s proven 664 sq. ft. drive-thru-only kiosk model, combined with their fast, friendly service, allows customers to “scoot in” on their way to work or school to buy their favorite beverage and get their day off to a great start.
“We are excited by the brand’s growth, and we are hoping to grow right along with it,” said Tom. “We decided to start with one location, as we’re expecting our third child in April of 2024, but our goal is to open five locations in the next three years.
“Tom and Abbie Diamantopoulos exemplify the kind of franchise partners we seek at Scooter’s Coffee,” says Matt Sawicki, Senior Director of Franchise Development. “Their enthusiasm for our brand, combined with their commitment to our core values of Integrity, Love, Humility, and Courage, aligns perfectly with our mission to provide exceptional coffee experiences.”
