Scooters Coffee set for NW 13 and Classen

The Gulf station is shown where Classen meets Western Avenue in this 2019 photo. 

When OnCue successfully sought zoning to build a new station at NW 13 and Classen last year, those opposing it included Safdar Muhammad, who owned an older Gulf station across the street. Muhammad unsuccessfully argued his station and other smaller businesses already fill the area's needs.

And he surely knew that smaller, older stations throughout the metro, especially Circle K stations, have closed after facing the opening of a nearby OnCue.

Muhammad sold the corner in December for $340,000, a tidy profit from his $170,000 purchase of the property in 2005. The Gulf station has since closed, and now building permit records show that the corner will be cleared for a Scooter's Coffee. The Omaha coffee retailer is drive-through only, providing all-day breakfast sandwiches and wraps, coffees and smoothies. 

Several locations are being built in the metro, with some already open at NW 122 and Rockwell and at NW 145 and Pennsylvania Avenue.

The site for the future OnCue at 1305 N Western Ave. has been cleared but building permits have yet to be filed.
