BIGGBY® COFFEE to Offer Discounts to Fanatics during 23rd Birthday Party


East Lansing, MI, March 12, 2018– BIGGBY® COFFEE will B celebrating 23 years of business on Wednesday, March 21, 2018. They plan to show their appreciation by offering customers $1.99 hot or iced specialty beverages from 7:00am until 7:00pm on that day.


“This is a BIGG year for us because as you’ve probably noticed, we’ve started to highlight our people in our marketing,” said Jeremy DeRuiter, Brand Sphere Director. “Richard, 2017 Barista of the Year, is in the spotlight through the end of April. His story is an inspiring example of the power of being yourself—a value Richard shares with BIGGBY® COFFEE. We love our customers for who they are, and on the birthday we’re here to celebrate YOU,” continued Jeremy.


Visiting a BIGGBY® COFFEE any day of the year certainly has the ability to make life feel like a celebration, but on March 21, the dial gets turned up to 11. Stores will be decorated with balloons, baristas will be dancing to the music, and while supplies last, you’ll even be able to order cake bites! The Home Office staff also hits the road during the birthday celebration to visit stores and be a helping hand if needed. “Mike and I make it a point to visit as many stores as we can during the birthday celebration,” said co-CEO Bob Fish. “We love to cheer on the baristas, chat with customers, and enjoy spending time with the family that started 23 years ago.”


“Starting my career in coffee at Store 1, the birthday celebration is definitely one of my favorite days of the year,” added co-CEO Mike McFall. “It’s a day to reflect on the past, celebrate the present, and look forward to the future. We’re constantly blown away that we get to wake up every day part of the BIGGBY® family and we see the annual birthday celebration as a way to share that with the world.”


Mark your calendars for this special day and make sure you budget time to visit your neighborhood BIGGBY® baristas!


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, Michael McFall and Bob Fish, 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 customer’s day. The “Big ‘B’” on the orange background caught on, and today BIGGBY® COFFEE has over 260 cafes open or under contract across nine states including: Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Florida, and Texas.
