Scooter's Coffeehouse 8th Annual Franchise Meeting Highlights New Vision For Future

Wednesday, January 19, 2011

Franchise owners, store managers and barista team members from a seven state region attended the 8th Annual Scooter's Coffeehouse Franchise Meeting held this past weekend at the Omaha Hilton-Convention Center. Hosted by Boundless Enterprises, LLC., the event marked the first official franchise meeting under the new leadership since Boundless purchased the Scooter's Coffeehouse franchise on October 1st, 2010.

David G. Brown, President/CEO of the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce was the keynote speaker for Saturday's luncheon audience. The message delivered during the meeting focused on the future of the franchise and finding the right people to be a part of the journey ahead.

Todd Graeve, Director of New Business Development with Boundless Enterprises discussed the direction of the company. "We had an incredible turnout and response to our annual franchise meeting, and we're in turn very excited about our future. Scooter's Coffeehouse is stepping into the future with purpose, and we took the opportunity this past weekend to cast vision, motivate our franchisees, and honor them for their amazing efforts in 2010.

"As we step into the future, we've established crystal-clear focus on where we're going in coming years. A part of that future will include new franchisees joining our team in regional and national markets. We're going to be a much larger company in 3-5 years. Considering the success of this year's franchise meeting, we're very much looking forward to coming meetings as new franchise owners join the business and our franchise family." Boundless Enterprises was established in 2006 with four stores, by Don Eckles, Jay Baker and Ben Gilbert, with others joining in 2008 and 2009. It acquired development rights for the Greater Kansas City metro area, Denver, and San Antonio/Austin areas. Boundless Enterprises has three additional locations under construction and several others under development. They employ approximately 135 employees in five states. It is also the parent company of Harvest Roasting in Bellevue, Nebraska, which supplies the Scooter's Coffeehouse franchisees with coffee beans and other related products.

Eckles serves as President, and is the original founder of Scooter's Java Express/Scooter's Coffeehouse, developing the company into seventeen successful locations before entering into a purchase agreement with SJE, Inc. Gilbert, also a successful former franchise owner serves as CIO. Baker, (COO) was previously the largest franchisee of Scooter's Coffeehouse.

Eckles added, "Our focus is on what we call the ‘amazings' Amazing people, amazing drinks amazingly fast. When our franchisees concentrate on those three things, we'll win. This is not a marketing tag line or a campaign that will change next year. It's our way of life and it starts with the Franchise Support Team at Boundless." Baker stated, "Amazing is a journey. It's not a destination. We can never settle into thinking we've done all we can. It was important to us at Boundless that the franchisees know we are here to help, and that we care."
