New Store to Celebrate with Grand Opening Event on April 29th

Aurora, NE, April 15, 2022 – Scooter’s Coffee, best known for its amazingly fast drive-thru, specialty coffee, and baked-from-scratch pastries, added a new location at 440 Q Street in Aurora, Nebraska. To celebrate, the drive-thru location will be hosting a Grand Opening on Friday, April 29, where customers can earn 50 bonus Smiles when they pay with the Scooter’s Coffee mobile app.

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. To pay with the app, customers simply need to link a credit card and tap “Pay in Stores” from the home screen. Then, if they choose to tip, they can select a custom amount or percentage prior to scanning their app. Customers also have the option to pay with cash or a gift card and still earn loyalty through the app by using the “Scan to Earn Loyalty” Only QR code.

The drive-thru location is owned by Todd, Tim, and Trevor Vettel. The Aurora store is the first location for the brothers, who also plan to open additional locations in Fort Collins, Colorado.

"We found a business that takes its core values seriously – integrity, humility, courage, and love,” said Todd. “These values resonate with my family's core values and the town's values and are the bedrock of the barista hiring process. We want to give the local youth an opportunity to develop a work ethic, gain experience, and help grow young leaders inside Aurora. The more I learned about Scooter's Coffee, the more it felt like an amazing fit for the Aurora community."

Beyond the Grand Opening, the Vettel brothers are also planning a Day of Giving this May where 100% of proceeds will be donated to Aurora Public Schools Booster Club, APS Foundation, and the Youth Center.

"We are very excited to announce our plans for a Day of Giving in May before school gets out,” said Todd. “It’s important for us to be an active member of the community and give back when we can. An official day has not been decided just yet, but we plan to announce very soon!”
