Scooters is planning a driver-through location on the northwest corner of Normal Boulevard and South Street.

A couple of coffee chains are planning new locations.

Scooter's is building a new driver-through location on the northeast corner of Normal Boulevard and South Street.

Jason Metcalf, the local franchisee of the Omaha-based chain, said the location should open the first week of July. It will be Scooter's 16th Lincoln location.

Starbucks filed a building permit last week for a new location at 5040 N. 26th St., which is near the corner of 27th and Superior streets.

The coffee chain did not return an email seeking comment. The location would be Starbucks' fourth standalone store and eighth store overall in Lincoln.
