Carissa and Brent Votroubek have grown their Scooter’s Coffee multi-unit operation to three successful locations in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Now they’ve signed on for two more of the drive-thru coffee brand’s locations that they will open in Hiawatha and Marion, Iowa, just north of Cedar Rapids. The Votroubeks said they expect to open their two newest locations in September.
“We were so successful with our first three stores that we were open to the possibility of even more,” said Carissa. “However, sometimes, it can be challenging to find the right space, especially for a drive-thru business. Luckily, in this case, the timing worked out, so we jumped on the opportunity.”
Carissa said one of the reasons she and her husband were drawn to Scooter’s Coffee was the brand’s community focus.
“The company has a real family feel, as opposed to a corporate feel. I think of it as a ‘big little franchise.’ That makes it perfect for Cedar Rapids, which is a ‘big little town,’” she said.
