Scooter’s Expanding

Scooter’s Coffeehouse started in Nebraska back in 1998 by Omaha natives, but this locally-owned coffee powerhouse will soon expand exponentially with even more locations opening up in Arizona. Already present in several states, it’s hard to believe that Scooter’s began as a small drive-thru place in Bellevue. http://www.scooterscoffee.com/

Lighthouse Pizza Delivery

Ever find yourself in a situation where you really want some Lighthouse Pizza, but you really don’t want to get off your comfortable couch? Good news – Lighthouse Pizza is now offering delivery for a small charge. Delivery hours and location are limited for now, but will likely expand in the coming months.   http://www.lhpizza.com/
