The coffee franchise is ready to spread some BIGGBY love to the Empire State.
250-plus unit coffee franchise BIGGBY COFFEE has announced that as of July 2, 2021, the brand is officially registered to franchise in the state of New York. BIGGBY COFFEE, which is centered on a culture of loving unconditionally and supporting others, is excited to bring that mission to communities across the Empire State.

BIGGBY COFFEE, based in East Lansing, Mich., 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 coffeelovers and the coffee-curious alike benefit from a less pretentious and fun approach to the standard gourmet cafe paradigm. Besides connoisseur-worthy drinks with 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 250 cafes across 10 states. In 2018, BIGGBY launched an Area Representative Program and currently has 17 Area Representatives in 8 states.
