The stores were started by Don & Linda Eckel who still run them as a private company.
Scooter’s Coffee is relatively new with stores in Onalaska, Holmen, Beloit, Paddock Lake, Mt Pleasant, Janesville, West Milwaukee and New Berlin.
The cafe and drive-thru are known for their “speed of service” and the company’s motto is “Amazing people, amazing drinks, amazingly fast.”
The cafe will employ approximately 20 to 25 people.
This model is approx. 1,650 square feet serving coffee, tea, smoothies, freshly baked cinnamon rolls (at our Omaha headquarters) and limited menu items. The capacity of the building is 48 occupants.
Scooter hours are approximately 6:00 AM to 10:00 PM.
Both the car wash and the scooters are shown on the plans; however, the scooters will be the project to be undertaken first, therefore there are no architectural plans available for the car wash at this time.
