BIGGBY® COFFEE, New Location In South Haven, MI

BIGGBY® COFFEE is Opening a Brand New Location in South Haven, Michigan!

April 15, 2016 // // South Haven, MI – BIGGBY® COFFEE is excited to announce the Grand Opening of a brand new store in South Haven, MI on Tuesday, April 19, 2016! This new store is located near the corner of Blue Star Hwy and Phoenix St across from Walgreens (330 Blue Star Hwy South Haven, MI 49090). This will be the first location for BIGGBY® owner/operators Tara Walston and Kim Zdybel! They can’t wait to bring BIGGBY® to South Haven be a part of such a vibrant and cultural community!

When asked why they chose BIGGBY® for their new adventure in South Haven, Tara had a lot of wonderful things to say! “The entrepreneurial spirit of working for oneself and providing a service helped in deciding to open a BIGGBY® COFFEE. The opportunity to have fun, spread smiles, and share our passion for coffee is a wonderful thing! Plus in doing research we discovered what a great company BIGGBY® is and how highly rated the franchise is. Our cultural values match the BIGGBY® cultural values of B Happy, Have Fun, Make Friends, Love People, and Drink Great Coffee!”

Tara will be behind the line making drinks on a regular basis acting as the store manager. Kim and Tara will both take an active part in the business along with Tara’s daughters, Brooke and Madison. They’re also very excited for the new opportunities that business ownership will provide! “This business venture is something completely new and different for us. We wanted to bring BIGGBY® COFFEE to South Haven not only because of the amazing lakeshore community, but also to break that long stretch of highway between Chicago and Grand Rapids. That deserves a coffee break!”

They also plan to actively partner with the local organizations and have already met some new friends along the way. “We have recently been part of the Children’s Food Basket in Grand Rapids. This winter we also had the chance to participate in the Break the Ice 5K during the 2016 Ice Breaker Festival here in South Haven and loved every chilly moment! We look forward to continuing the relationships with local non-profits in the area as we open this spring!”

Stop in and help Tara, Kim, Brooke, and Madison celebrate the Grand Opening of their new BIGGBY® store! They will be open Monday through Saturday 6:00 am to 9:00 pm and Sunday 7:00 am to 9:00 pm. If you’re a new customer, or already a fanatic, Tara would like to offer up a drink suggestion when you visit them in South Haven. “It’s so hard to choose just one but the frozen Mocha Mocha latte is my favorite as we head into the warmer months!”


BIGGBY® COFFEE, East Lansing, Mich.-based, was started with a single store on March 15, 1995. One year later, and on the cusp of opening a second location, Bob Fish and his business partner Michael McFall, on a handshake and $3,000, decided to franchise the concept. BIGGBY® COFFEE’s core values of B happy, have fun, make friends, love people, and drink great coffee help coffee-lovers and the coffee-curious alike benefit from a less pretentious and fun approach to the standard gourmet café paradigm. Besides connoisseur-worthy drinks with pronounceable names like Teddy Bear and Caramel Marvel, BIGGBY® baristas provide a unique experience focused on brightening their customer’s day. The “Big ‘B’” on the orange background caught on, and today BIGGBY® COFFEE has 258 cafes open or under contract across nine states including: Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Florida, and Texas.
