New Store to Celebrate with Grand Opening Event August 26
Greenville, IL, August 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 1505 IL-127 in Greenville, Illinois. To celebrate, the drive-thru location will be hosting a Grand Opening on Friday, August 26, where customers can receive half off any drink 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. For quick and convenient ordering, Mobile Order Ahead is also available. Ordering ahead allows customers to customize their drinks in many ways, pay ahead, and pick up quickly at the drive-thru window.
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 app is available for download on the App Store or Google Play.
The location is owned and operated by Jerry and Sherri Gaffner. The Gaffner’s are long-time grain farmers and lifetime residents of Greenville. The couple’s story started with Scooter’s Coffee while visiting their son Jonah and his wife, Quinn in Omaha, Nebraska.
“We were immediately drawn to Scooter’s Coffee’s wide variety of menu options for all ages and were later captured by the franchise’s resolve to lead this national brand in integrity, love, humility, and courage – values we strive to build in our own family,” said Gaffner’s in a joint statement. “When we saw that Scooter’s Coffee had already chosen Greenville as their newest site, we jumped at the opportunity to become the local owners and begin this next life adventure!”
“We chose Wendy Zeeb, someone who reflects our values, as our General Manager to help us as we lead our amazing team of 25 baristas,” they continued. “Providing local jobs and being a bright spot in the lives of our amazing customers, while providing our community with national brand of quality products is our top goal!
The couple concluded by saying, “We love Greenville and Bond County and want to invest in our community to make it an even more amazing place to live, work, and play.”
