ATLANTIC — Work has started on the site of the new Scooter’s Coffee that is coming to Atlantic. The company plans to build the drive-through only business at 1508 East Seventh Street, on a grassy area between Oinkers and McDonalds, and in front of Verizon and U.S. Cellular. The company will offer coffee, smoothies and more, and plans to be open by Thanksgiving. A crew was busy clearing up the wood and branches after taking down a large tree on the site. The business was founded by Don and Linda Eckles in 1998, and their first coffee house was opened in Bellevue, Neb. They say the key to their success is “high-quality drinks, speed of service and a big smile.”
