A butterscotch and caramel latte super charged with a shot of espresso. Erica always orders an Americano, shots of espresso over water, which can be ordered hot for those cold Michigan winter mornings or over ice on those hot summer days. Jake can’t live without his BIGGBY® Best Blend coffee, black and with as many shots of espresso he can fit in there. Emily has a sweet tooth for the Raspberry Cream Freeze, which is great for a late night sweet treat. Last but not least, our owner, Rick swears by the Caramel Marvel®. A caramel latte that comes hot, iced, or frozen.
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 253 cafes open or under contract across nine states including: Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Florida and Texas.
