This store marks the eighth BIGGBY® COFFEE location for owner/operator, Tim Barker. “We have had a long and fruitful relationship with BIGGBY and it was a no brainer for us to open another store when such a great spot opened up!” said Barker.


Outside of serving specialty lattes, hot chocolates, tea lattes and creme freeze smoothies, the store is looking forward to community involvement. “We are excited to get out and be a part of the community around us,” said Barker. “There has been great support already before opening so I can’t wait to see everyone once we actually do open!”


Barker has had a strong record in his other BIGGBY locations working with local schools and hopes to continue this at the Breton SE location. “With all the schools around us and with the municipal complex close, we hope to build strong ties.”


You can stop in and say “hi” to Barker and his baristas and join in the grand opening celebration Monday – Saturday from 6 a.m. – 9 p.m. and Sundays from 7 a.m. – 9 p.m.


About BIGGBY® COFFEE 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 224 cafes open or under contract across nine states including: Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Florida and Texas.
