BIGGBY® COFFEE is Opening a Brand New Location in Williamston, Michigan!


Williamston, MI, June 24, 2016–BIGGBY® COFFEE is excited to announce the Grand Opening of a brand new store in Williamston, MI on Tuesday, June 28, 2016! This brand new store is located just west of downtown Williamston on Grand River, between the major roads of Zimmer and Putnam (725 W Grand River Williamston, MI  48895). This will be the first BIGGBY® location for the Wheeler family! Julie and Meghan Wheeler, who will be running the day-to-day as the store owner/operators, can’t wait to make new friends in the Williamston area, and get to know those already friendly faces better! “We are most excited to be surrounded by our favorite coffee and a great community every day! We cannot wait to meet our regular customers and be involved in this community.”


Meghan Wheeler is no stranger to BIGGBY®! Before their family decided to open their own store, she was a BIGGBY® barista! Julie was on board and before they knew it, they had signed for their own store! “After years of Meghan working in BIGGBY® stores and joking about opening our own because we visited so often, we decided it was time after Meghan finished school and wanted to pursue this! We love the product and everything fun and energizing that BIGGBY® stands for. The whole family is a group of coffee fanatics!”


Julie, Meghan, and their team are eager to B involved in local community events and give back whenever they can. “We are a part of the Chamber of Commerce and plan to involve ourselves in Williamston’s Jubilee event! We’d love to hand out some fun tattoos for the kids and introduce ourselves to the community! We plan to connect with the schools here in Williamston and become involved with their events. We have lived in Holt for a while now and in the past we have been involved with the schools, such as PTO and working events, and helping the community with sorting food for the food drive.”


Stop in and help Julie, Meghan, and their team at the Williamston BIGGBY® COFFEE celebrate the Grand Opening of their new store! They will be open Monday through Saturday 6:00 am to 9:00 pm and Sunday 7:00 am to 9:00 pm. Julie would like to offer up a drink suggestion when you visit the team. “The frozen Butter Bear Latte is my go-to! I can’t get through my morning without one!”


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 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 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 259 cafes open or under contract across nine states including: Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Florida, and Texas.
