What started as a local hangout for Ball State University students has expanded into this 17-unit sports bar chain. The concept remains focused on the college crowd, with units near campuses in Indiana, Illinois and Florida. Customers can log in on Scotty’s website or mobile app to join an online waitlist at peak times. The app also offers ordering, payment and rewards.
