BIGGBY® COFFEE, East Lansing, Mich.-based, was started with a single store on March 15, 1995. 1 year later, and on the cusp of opening a second location, Bob Fish and Michael McFall, on a handshake and $4,000, made a decision to franchise the concept. BIGGBY® COFFEE’s cultural values of Make Friends, Have Fun, B Yourself, and Share Great Coffee help coffee-lovers and the coffee-curious alike benefit from a less pretentious and fun approach to the standard gourmet cafe paradigm.
Besides connoisseur-worthy drinks with pronounceable names like Teddy Bear® and Caramel Marvel®, BIGGBY® baristas offer a unique experience centered on brightening their customers’ day and supporting them in creating a life they love. The “Big ‘B’” on the orange background caught on, and now BIGGBY® COFFEE has greater than 230 cafes across 9 states and counting including Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Florida, and Texas. In 2018, BIGGBY® launched an Area Representative Program and currently has 8 Area Representatives in 6 states.
