BIGGBY® COFFEE Celebrates Community After 10 Years of Service

BIGGBY® COFFEE is celebrating 10 years in Lima, Ohio! The BIGGBY® COFFEE location at 717 N. Cable Rd., in Lima, is celebrating its 10th anniversary on February 8 in a big way! Owner/operators Peggy Rector Fultz and Adam Rector are looking forward to giving back to the community that has helped them grow over the last 10 years.


As a way to celebrate 10 years of serving its community both Lima, Ohio, BIGGBY® COFFEE locations are celebrating with $1.99 specialty drinks, prizes throughout the day, and a special radio personalities Dave and Victoria on 92.1 the Frog!


Rector explained that this “is a thank you and a party celebrating being a part of the Lima community for the last decade. We are excited to see those customers who have been with us along the whole journey as well as hopefully making new friends!”


Rector, Rector Fultz, and their team of baristas have been hard at work over the last 10 years working in the community to make a difference. Over the years, they’ve partnered with the American Cancer Society for events like Relay for Life and the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk; they participated with the Lima Memorial Foundation, the Lima Allen County Chamber, as well as various local churches and schools.


BIGGBY® COFFEE exists to love people. They believe that when you love the world the world will love you back, and they actively strive to help support people in building a life they love. Not only has BIGGBY® COFFEE helped Rector and Rector Fultz build lives they love serving the community they love, but more importantly the opportunity to help those in their community build lives they love.


“To make an impact by simply donating coffee or our time and what that can do for an organization has been so rewarding,” Rector said. He noted that the most rewarding thing about the past 10 years is “seeing hundreds of employees who have come through our doors and ten years later seeing some of those same former employees making a difference in our community and living a life they love. Not just our employees, but it has been rewarding seeing the impact of our passion for the community and the amazing organizations we have been able to be a part of and help in their missions.”


Be sure to stop in to one of the Lima BIGGBY® COFFEEs, at 717 N. Cable Road or 1519 Harding Hwy., on February 8 and celebrate with Rector, Rector Fultz and their team as they celebrate the last 10 years and gear up to serve their community for another 10 years!




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 customer’s day and supporting them in building a life they love. The “Big ‘B’” on the orange background caught on, and today BIGGBY® COFFEE has 281 cafes open or under contract across 10 states including: Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Florida, Texas, and New Jersey. In 2018, BIGGBY® launched an Area Representative Program and currently has 8 area representatives in 6 states.
