Biggby® Bounces into Fort Wayne with a New Store Opening

A new BIGGBY® COFFEE Location Opens in Fort Wayne, Ind.

June 24, 2014 // Franchising.com // EAST LANSING, MICH. – BIGGBY® COFFEE in Fort Wayne, Ind. throws its doors open June 24, with a grand opening at 6568 East State Blvd. This is one of three BIGGBY stores opening during the month of June.

The new location is owned by Yul Craig and Deborah Ann Martin. These fanatics dreamt of becoming entrepreneurs, and BIGGBY was the perfect opportunity to help turn a dream into reality.

"After 25 years of service in the Fort Wayne Community Schools, I wanted to try something different. I had always wanted to try the entrepreneur world," said Yul.

It was love at first sight for the couple when they attended a Discovery Day- a day dedicated to welcoming all individuals interested in franchising with BIGGBY® to learn more. They are ecstatic about waving the BIGGBY® Nation flag in Fort Wayne.

"We were both sold on the BIGGBY® model and started the application process as soon as we could. Now we are well on our way to being the first BIGGBY® store in Fort Wayne," said Deborah Ann.

Say hello to the new staff at the Fort Wayne BIGGBY® COFFEE location, which will have free Wi-Fi, specialty lattes, smoothies and tea. Store hours will be Monday through Friday 6 a.m. - 9 p.m., Saturday 7 a.m.-9 p.m. and Sunday 7 a.m. – 7 p.m.

About BIGGBY® COFFEE

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 219 cafes open or under contract across nine states including: Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Florida and Texas.
