Free Coffee For Veterans

BIGGBY® COFFEE to Honor Veterans with Free Coffee on Veterans Day

November 11, 2019 // // East Lansing, MI - As a small way to thank the men and women that serve and have served in the United States military, BIGGBY® COFFEE is giving free brewed to all active and retired members of the military.

It is because of their sacred sacrifice BIGGBY® COFFEE is able to make friends, have fun, be themselves, and share great coffee. Through their sacrifice, BIGGBY® COFFEE is able to spread love to the communities they serve and provide a safe, loving, and inclusive environment for anyone that walks through their doors.

On Veterans Day, November 11, all retired and active military will receive free brewed on BIGGBY® COFFEE throughout the nation when they present their id. While just a small token of thanks, BIGGBY® COFFEE believes that life is better when we share great coffee.

Whether you sit and stay or grab to go, BIGGBY® COFFEE loves every individual that walks through their doors and is proud to serve the world’s greatest coffee to veterans throughout the nation. To take it even one step further, BIGGBY® COFFEE is honored to help veterans build lives they love as they build their own BIGGBY® COFFEE businesses.

BIGGBY® COFFEE owner/operator and eight-year Marine Corp veteran Charles Solano has been a BIGGBY® COFFEE fanatic since the first store opened nearly 25 years ago.

“I believe in BIGGBY® COFFEE. I love it. One thing I’ve found with BIGGBY® COFFEE that is similar to the military is how it is like a family,” Solano said. “We knew each other well in the military and the same principle applies here with BIGGBY® COFFEE.”

Solano is one of many military members in the BIGGBY® COFFEE community, and we are honored to work with him, as well as many other military owner/operators.

Because BIGGBY® COFFEE values veterans, approved honorably discharged veterans will receive a 50 percent discount on their initial franchise fee no matter the day. Through internal support and coaching by seasoned veteran BIGGBY® COFFEE owners, incoming veteran owner/operators get individual mentorship unlike any other.

It is through the sacrifice that Solano and other BIGGBY® COFFEE owners and consumers that BIGGBY® COFFEE is what it is today; and for all of them, we are thankful.

Please raise your lattes with BIGGBY COFFEE, as we thank all active and retired service members, whose sacrifices and contributions to this country are unmatched.


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 Michael McFall, on a handshake and $4,000, decided to franchise the concept. BIGGBY® COFFEE’s cultural values of Make Friends, Have Fun, B Yourself, and Share Great Coffee help coffee-lovers and the coffee-curious alike benefit from a less pretentious and fun approach to the standard gourmet cafe paradigm. Besides connoisseur-worthy drinks with pronounceable names like Teddy Bear® and Caramel Marvel®, BIGGBY® baristas provide a unique experience focused on brightening their customers’ day and supporting them in building a life they love. The “Big ‘B’” on the orange background caught on, and today BIGGBY® COFFEE has more than 230 cafes across 9 states and counting including Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Florida, and Texas. In 2018, BIGGBY® launched an Area Representative Program and currently has 8 Area Representatives in 6 states.
