Restaurant Owner Signs Multi-Unit Agreement With National Coffee Brand

August 03, 2023 // // OMAHA, Neb. - 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 drive-thru coffee locations to Stuart, Port St. Lucie, Jensen Beach, and Hobe Sound, Florida.

The expansion into southeastern Florida is the result of a five-unit franchise agreement signed by Eric Gioia. Gioia owns a restaurant in Washington DC but after a divorce, relocated to North Palm Beach in 2010. He “The east coast of Florida is booming, it’s one of the fastest-growing areas in the country, and Scooter’s Coffee is not here yet.” Gioia saw it as a great opportunity. “I saw my first Scooter’s Coffee in Chattanooga about three years ago. I was really impressed by the kiosk-only model, their fast, friendly service, and the company’s values.”

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.

According to the latest market trends compiled by the National Coffee Association, 60% of Americans drank coffee in the past day. And 28% of people reported purchasing coffee at a coffee shop or restaurant in the past day — a number that’s almost back to pre-pandemic levels. The drive-thru coffee model, already popular in our fast-paced society, has boomed during the pandemic, giving customers a way to get a delicious beverage while staying socially distant. Scooter’s Coffee kiosks, with the Brand Promise of “Amazing People, Amazing Drinks… Amazingly Fast!®” are helping Americans stay caffeinated and safe while providing high-quality products with a smile.

“I plan on running this as a family business. I have four children, and I want to build something that I can leave them after I’m gone,” said Gioia.

“We’re very excited Eric Gioia decided to join Scooter’s Coffee,” said Matt Sawicki, Senior Director of Franchise Development. “He shares our core values of integrity, love, humility, and courage, and will be a great addition to our franchise system.”
