East Lansing, Mich.-based Biggby® Coffee 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 179 cafes open or under contract across nine states including: Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Florida and Texas.
