Scooters Coffee, based in Nebraska, will soon have locations in Fayetteville and Sanford, according to the company.

We can all use a little more coffee in our lives, and new locations of Scooter’s Coffee in Fayetteville and Sanford will help with that soon.

Scooter’s Coffee is a Nebraska-based coffee chain with locations currently in Smithfield, Wilson, Monroe and Indian Trail, all in North Carolina. There are additional several hundred other locations across the country.

Father-son duo Vince Andracchio and Brice Andracchio will be the franchise owners, as part of a seven-unit agreement with Scooter’s. Representatives said specific locations in the market have not been finalized yet.

“We discovered that Scooter’s Coffee shared our values in regard to treating their employees the right way, as well as their commitment customer service,” Brice Andracchio said. “At the end of the day making the customer happy is paramount to our success.”

The Andrachhio’s are based out of Rocky Mount, and say they’ve owned several restaurant franchises, including near Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville.

“We own a fast-food franchise in Jacksonville near Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and we found it very rewarding serving the military community, the people willing to sacrifice to make our country a better place,” Brice Andracchio said. “We want to do the same for the soldiers at Ft. Bragg and their families.”

According to the company, Scooter’s Coffee “specializes in artisan espresso drinks, fruit smoothies, baked-from-scratch pastries and features its signature drink, the Caramelicious. The company also recently added depth to its profile with a line of organic hot and iced teas, single-origin coffee and Cold Brew & Cream.”

“The Fayetteville area is a great market for our brand,” said Kelly Crummer, Scooter’s Coffee Senior Director of Franchise Recruitment. “We are excited that Brice and Vince Andracchio have decided to open their franchisees there, as they share our core values of integrity, love, humility, and courage.”
