KATY, Texas, USA – Scooter’s Coffee, one of the fastest growing drive-thru franchise companies in the nation, achieved a remarkable milestone when it opened its 400th store in Katy, Texas in December 2021. On April 22, the Scooter’s Coffee in Katy at 2255 Fry Road will celebrate the 400-store mark with a Ribbon Cutting and Grand Opening Celebration at 11 a.m.
The festivities will include support for the Houston Humane Society. Scooter’s Coffee invites community members to attend, and they are welcome to bring their pups to receive a Pup Cup, resulting in Scooter’s Coffee donations to the humane society.
To help celebrate this amazing day in Scooter’s Coffee franchise history, the Katy location will debut Scooter’s Coffee latest technologies and processes. Showcasing what the future of Scooter’s Coffee will look like, the Katy site offers the first of many new features for the brand, including exterior digital menu boards, a dual-lane drive-thru, and much more.
“At Scooter’s Coffee, we are constantly striving to create the best possible experience for our customers, and a part of that is through new technology and innovation,” said Nathan Lester, Senior Director of Drive-Thru Innovation at Scooter’s Coffee. “Katy is one of our first locations to offer a dual-lane drive-thru to really enhance the speed in which our customers are getting through the drive-thru from start to finish. In addition, utilizing digital menu boards at this location allows us ample flexibility. We are excited to continue this innovation across all locations nationwide.”
To celebrate 400 stores and the Grand Opening of the Katy location, on April 22, customers who pay or scan for loyalty on the Scooter’s Coffee mobile app will receive half off any drink! With the app, customers earn three “Smiles” for every dollar spent to collect toward free drinks for their loyalty. The app is available for download on the App Store or Google Play.
On Grand Opening day, the Katy location welcomes customers to bring their pups with them to enjoy a Pup Cup, a delicious mini cup of whipped cream. For every Pup Cup provided on April 22, the Katy location will be donating $2 to the Houston Humane Society. The Houston Humane Society also will have its mobile adoption unit onsite and pets available for adoption from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. As a bonus, Scooter’s Coffee will be giving away pet bandanas to the first 400 customers of the day.
