Scooter’s Coffee, which will open its first area store in Orange Park, says that with almost 400 stores in 23 states and commitments to open stores in 30 states, it “is at the dawn of a strategic growth phase across the nation.”
Its goal is to open 1,000 stores by 2024, “and Northeast Florida is an essential part of that strategy.”
Scooter’s Coffee, based in Omaha, Nebraska, said it signed more than 300 deals representing more than 1,000 commitments since 2020, including many in Florida.
“The U.S. coffee market is an estimated $48 billion-a-year, recession-resistant industry, and with a 674-foot proven kiosk model, Scooter’s Coffee is striving to become the #1 drive-thru coffee franchise in the nation.”
Scooter’s Coffee, which franchises, said it has 12 locations in development across Northeast Florida and is expanding.
A franchisee intends to build a 632-square-foot double drive-thru at 151 Park Ave. in Orange Park and open in summer 2022.
It is expected to be the first of up to 16 or more in the market among at least four franchisees, according to Franklin Street Real Estate Services Senior Associate Abby Walsh, who represents Scooter’s.
She said the four separate francHisees for portions of Clay, Duval, Nassau and St. Johns counties have 15 to 16 agreements, and there is room for more.
