New Scooters location on 12th Avenue NW in Ardmore wrapped up in time for the holiday week.

New business in town is always exciting, and that is no different for the newly opened coffee shop on 12th Avenue. As the community has watched the new construction and remodels happening around town, everyone wants to know what's going where, in true small town style. 

According to a Scooter’s Coffee representative, “new Scooter’s Coffee locations are chosen by a number of factors. A lot of times, the franchisees have a connection to the community. Other times, we see that a community shares our core values. But no matter what the case may be, we see a need for specialty coffee in your area!” 

The spokesperson said the new location was built to their kiosk-only model and is located at 1825 12th Avenue NW in Ardmore.

A company spokesperson said the store will employ approximately 15 people. Available job opportunities can be found on scooterscoffee.com. The store offers an app for mobile devices to enable touchless payment and earn rewards.
