Coffee Drive-Through Store Coming to South Fort Scott

Scooter’s Coffee is coming to Fort Scott.


The store will be located in the strip mall on Main Street, which is also 69 Hwy on the south end of town.


“We are very excited to open in Fort Scott,” said Demi Bouwens,   director of operations for the franchise in Pittsburg and Fort Scott.


“The store will be located in the parking lot near the Hibbett’s Sports Store,” Bouwens said. “We are aiming for a November 2020 opening.”
“As we were building our location in Pittsburg last year we began to notice the community in Fort Scott,” she said. “We loved the warm, friendly environment as we spent time in the community. Because of this, we knew this community would be a great fit for Scooter’s brand.”
Not just coffee will be offered but other snack items will be sold at the drive-through only coffee store.
“We offer a variety of options from coffee, smoothies, teas, lattes, blenders, muffins, breakfast options, to cookies and our famous cinnamon roll,” she said. “This is a drive-through only model where you can count on amazing drinks served to you amazingly fast!”
What is the history of Scooters?
“In 1998, Scooter’s Coffee was born,” Bouwens said.  “Co-founders Don and Linda Eckles began an amazing journey when they opened their first drive-thru coffeehouse in Bellevue, Nebraska. Their keys to success: find a great location and stay committed to high-quality drinks, speed of service, and a BIG smile. Scooter’s Coffee is fortunate to have over two decades of success due to its commitment to the original business principles and company core values. Amazing People, Amazing Drinks…Amazingly Fast!”

One thought on “Coffee Drive-Through Store Coming to South Fort Scott”

  1. I’m glad Fort Scott is getting new business. But why is there nothing new happening on east side of town? I live on far eastside. Many times I go to Missouri, because it is more convenient. And seems like the same distance as driving all the way across town. I wonder why no new restaurant, with so many truckers on 54 highway. They have almost no where to stop and spend time and money, as they pass through. It makes no sense for them to drive south when heading north. Just wondering.
