BIGGBY® COFFEE is proud to have such a location serving their coffee and displaying what BIGGBY® COFFEE is all about, and is honored to see them recognized in such a large way!


Through their support of and dedication to the community they serve, BIGGBY® New Hudson has shown over the years what BIGGBY® COFFEE is all about: the friendly coffee community, a place of love and support, a place where the people served are just as important as the coffee poured.

Alongside that, BIGGBY® New Hudson has been recognized by the Oakland County Board of Commissioners as 2019 Business of the Year. The Oakland County Board of Commissioners honored owner/operator Karissa Canfield and her staff at BIGGBY® New Hudson as a “small business enhanc[ing] the local economy and quality of life for residents…and truly embody[ing] the spirit of community and giving back,” for the many hours Canfield and her employees have dedicated to building up their community through fundraising, community involvement, and sending care packages to troops in war zones through the Desert Angel non-profit organization.


“We love being involved in the community, so for others to recognize what we’re doing, it makes us feel validated and know that we’re making a difference,” Canfield said. “It’s validation that we can keep doing what we’re doing—and more!”

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.
