The new Scooter's Coffee in Taylorville opened in mid-December, and its ribbon cutting is Friday at eleven in the morning. Franchise owner Lauryn McGlasson and her husband Marcus, both from Pleasant Plains, invested in the local franchise as their first, after stopping at a Scooter's Coffee while on vacation.
McGlasson told the WTIM Morning Show's Chamber Chat segment on Thursday that the new Taylorville location offers a variety of coffees and pastries from early morning until mid-evening.
And, McGlasson and her husband are looking to buy more franchise locations to operate in the coming months.
The new Scooter's Coffee in Taylorville is at the intersection of Illinois Routes 29 and 104 on the city's northwest side.
