KidGlov, a boutique, full-service advertising, branding and content marketing agency based out of Lincoln and Omaha, Neb., recently welcomed Bill Black, chief marketing officer of Scooter’s Coffee, to its podcast, Agency for Change. The episode explores Black’s multi-decade experience in the coffee industry and how Scooter’s Coffee has become a growing national brand.
“Scooter’s Coffee is so much more than just a place to grab a ‘cup of joe,’” said Lyn Wineman, KidGlov president and chief strategist. “They’re revolutionizing the coffee industry with ‘relationship coffee’ that promotes so much good for coffee bean farmers. It was fascinating to hear more about this incredible organization.”
Founded in 1998 in Bellevue, Neb., Scooter’s Coffee has now grown to more than 400 locations across the country. Their values center around connection through love, humility, integrity and courage. In addition to high-quality coffee and delicious drinks, the organization is firmly committed to building relationships with farmers, franchise owners, employees, and customers.
During the Agency for Change podcast episode, Black shares what ‘relationship coffee’ means at Scooter’s, how the organization focuses on customer experience, the story behind Scooter’s iconic smile stickers, and what’s next for the coffee brand–including new growth across the nation.
“Relationship coffee means we take a lot of pride in going in and building relationships with coffee bean farmers,” said Black. “We buy the beans directly from farmers and that allows them to get a higher price for their coffee, have a livable wage, and provide for their families.”
The full Agency for Change episode featuring Bill Black can be found on KidGlov’s website, or wherever podcasts are available.
