Owner Jared Montgomery is excited to open the doors at 8:00am on Monday, November 21st and bring Scout's brand, which is focused on coffee and kindness to Grain Valley.
"I've been in coffee awhile. It started out by hanging out in coffee shops or working in coffee shops, but it seemed I always had to go to Kansas City for a good atmosphere and a good cup of coffee. So, eventually I wanted to bring that to my own community," Montgomery said.
Montgomery grew up in Blue Springs with family ties to Grain Valley, and after a decade of scouting out the best coffee shops in the metro area, decided to open his first shop in downtown Blue Springs in 2019. The shop developed a reputation as a community gathering space with great locally roasted coffee and latte creations. Montgomery had his eye on expanding to Grain Valley for awhile, and jumped on the space at 101 W. Walnut when it became available.
"We're excited about revitalizing downtown districts, and we're excited about the potential here. The coffee shop is really about high-quality coffee, and an inclusive space for everyone."
"We want to serve the best coffee in Kansas City and create a welcoming community."
In addition to their coffees, lattes, and tea selections, the shop offers a variety of breakfast items and food offerings throughout the day. A full selection of Scout Coffee merchandise can also be found at the new shop.
With the expansion of Iron Kettle Brewing's event space just west of Scout Coffee, Montgomery said the possibilities to expand their product line to accommodate new guests to downtown are endless.
The Grain Valley location will be open 6am - 5pm Monday - Friday, 7am - 5pm on Saturday and closed on Sunday. The shop will open its doors for its grand opening at 8am on Monday, November 21st.
