EAST LANSING, MI., Nov. 7, 2012 – Biggby Coffee fanatics are rejoicing in Saginaw, Mich. as the world’s best coffee company readies to open the area’s first location on Tuesday, Dec. 11! The store will be located at 3085 Bay Rd., and will feature a different drink special each day of its opening week.
“Saginaw has waited way too long for their own Biggby, and I’m very excited to be opening in the city next month,” Alex Winkel, store franchisee said. “BIGGBY has much more fun, friendly and community based concept than other coffee brands, which people really appreciate. I think Biggby is going to fit in great here.”
On opening day, the store will offer tall, hot or iced, Caramel Marvels, the brand’s most popular drink, for only 99 cents all day long! The drink specials will continue through the remainder of the week as well!
“Growing up in Michigan, you start to really appreciate the local brands and businesses, and with Biggby it’s no different,” Winkel said. “I’ve gotten great feedback in the area and think people are really excited for Biggby to be here not only because it’s a Michigan-made business, but because the quality of product is the best that’s out there.”
The Saginaw location will be open Monday- Saturday 6 a.m. – 9 p.m. and Sunday 7 a.m. – 9 p.m. The store will feature free Wi-Fi, and the full Biggby Coffeemenu, including the ever-popular Peppermint Stick Mocha and other holiday favorites and gifts throughout the month of December.
“Whether you are a coffee drinker or not, there is something for everyone at Biggby,” Winkel said. “I’m looking forward to introducing the brand here, getting involved with the community, and helping to expand Biggby in a new market.”
East Lansing, Mich.-based Biggby Coffee opened a single store in March of 1995 based on the founding principle that coffee-lovers and the coffee-curious alike would benefit from a less pretentious approach to the standard gourmet café paradigm. Biggby Coffee introduced connoisseur-worthy drinks with pronounceable names like Teddy Bear and Caramel Marvel, and barista staff surprised guests with simple gestures like free kazoos and bouncy balls for no other reason than to brighten their day. The “Big ‘B’” on the orange background caught on, and today Biggby Coffee has 160 cafes open or under contract across eight states including: Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Florida, and Texas.
