With the app, customers earn three “Smiles” for every dollar spent to collect toward free drinks for their loyalty. For quick and convenient ordering, Mobile Order Ahead is also available. Ordering ahead allows customers to customize their drinks in many ways, pay ahead, and pick up quickly at the drive-thru window.

To pay with the app, customers simply need to link a credit card and tap “Pay in Stores” from the home screen. Then, if they choose to tip, they can select a custom amount or percentage prior to scanning their app. Customers also have the option to pay with cash or a gift card and still earn loyalty through the app by using the “Scan to Earn Loyalty” Only QR code. The app is available for download on the App Store or Google Play.

The drive-thru location is owned and operated by Peter and Karishma Gariepy.

“Thank you to the Bethalto community for its support while building the store, in particular the Office of Mayor Bost and Shane Cooper at Geno’s 140 Club. Led by Store Manager Emily Buckingham and Assistant Store Manager Katie Pyle, our wonderful team of baristas is ready to serve up Scooter’s Coffee every day of the week! Thank you also to the Scooter’s Coffee corporate team, and our general contractor, Cole Hoene at Grunloh Building. We look forward to our family business being a positive addition to the fabric of Bethalto for many years. -Karishma and Peter Gariepy”
