Scooter’s Coffee Signs On with Brink POS Software
Scooter’s Coffee has selected ParTech’s Brink POS software for its franchise system. In the previous year, Scooter’s Coffee opened 64 new stores and continued its trend of positive year-over-year same store sales growth. In 2020, Scooter’s Coffee is targeting over 70 new store openings.
Don and Linda Eckles founded Scooter’s Coffee in 1998 and has remained committed to world-class coffee and people, including the customers, stakeholders, and employees that have allowed the company to expand from its headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska, into a total of 16 states.
Missy McKinley, Vice President, Operations & Training, Scooter’s Coffee, said, “With a business in a $48 billion recession-resistant industry, and strategic growth targeting more than 1,000 stores in the next 5-7 years, ParTech will be an important strategic partner with Scooter’s Coffee, contributing to the success and growth of our valued franchisees. Our partnership with ParTech is also facilitating new opportunities for Scooter’s with other Brink POS partners for inventory & labor management, video analytics, mobile order ahead, and additional applications that will help us drive even better service to our customers every day.”
After implementing Brink, the first improvement Scooter’s Coffee anticipates is a delay-free Kitchen Display System (KDS) that dramatically reduces staff frustration thanks to real-time order communication between front and back of house. Scooter’s Coffee will also be able to reduce its barista onboarding time by half as a result of the menu customization allowed on Brink POS-powered screens.
“The Brink display screens show all of the ingredients that make up the drink (milk type, number of shots in the drink, etc). This is super helpful when training new baristas and helping them learn drink recipes. There is far less lag time, or none even, between typing in the order to the POS and it appearing on the display screen,” said Mackenzie Burnett from Loving Cup, a company that owns several Scooter’s Coffee franchises.
