Scooter’s Coffee, at 20 E. Eighth St., in the Spencer Fareway parking lot, celebrated its grand opening with a day of specials and a ribbon cutting Friday morning. Franchisees Josh Morris and Robb Steffes were on hand along with the staff, and were joined by members of the Spencer Chamber Ambassadors for the special occasion. Steffes, a native of Spencer, noted, “It is great to be part of the new, great Spencer Main Street landscape.” Morris added, “We thought it would be a great spot.” Both men were Scooter’s customers before they invested in the business and they hope to expand the footprint up into the Lakes area where they have rights in Spirit Lake. They both want to provide a quality drink and quick service to the drive-thru customer base. The Omaha-based company operates locations across the country.
