BIGGBY® COFFEE is Opening a Brand New Location in Saginaw, MI!


Saginaw, MI, January 19, 2018–BIGGBY® COFFEE is excited to announce the Grand Opening of a new store in Saginaw, MI on Tuesday, January, 23 2018! This brand new store is located at the corner of State St and Wieneke, between Menards and Walmart (5775 State Street Saginaw, MI 48603). This will be the second BIGGBY® location for owner/operator Alex Winkel! Alex and his manager Richard are ready to serve the Saginaw community at store #2 and embody the B yourself culture that BIGGBY® represents. “I’m very excited to be opening my second store in Saginaw Township. Being new to this area 6 years ago, I have been overwhelmed by the local support for BIGGBY®,” said Alex. “I believe that we have the friendliest and most supportive customer base around. I’m very thankful for the community backing and look forward to doing more business in Saginaw in the years to come!”


Alex will be sharing his time between his two Saginaw locations and his much-loved manager from his first location, Richard, will be overseeing the team at store #2. They can’t wait to bring a BIGGBY® drive-thru to Saginaw and take care of their on-the-go fanatics! “So many of our current customers have become friends and feel like family,” said Alex. When we asked him what he was most excited about for this grand opening, he talked about his team. “My staff and I are so excited about building these relationships in the community. I really enjoy watching them thrive when they’re interacting with customers. It has been a great accomplishment in my life giving my baristas a great work environment and a job they can have fun at,” he continued. “Richard and I work around their schedules, school and personal, and work hard to give them the opportunity to make their dreams come true.”


Alex and Richard spend a lot of time sharing BIGGBY® love with the people surrounding their store and are looking forward to continuing to give back. “We have done countless donations, silent auctions and coffee/drink drops at many events and fundraisers around town. This year we also helped raised a substantial amount of money for the Central Michigan Food Bank. Having another store allows us to further our reach into our community,” said Alex.


Swing by and help Alex and his team celebrate the Grand Opening of their new BIGGBY® store in Saginaw! They will be open Monday through Saturday 6:00 am to 9:00 pm and Sunday 7:00 am to 9:00 pm. Visit their Facebook page for store updates and special offers – @BiggbyCoffeeSaginaw!


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 cultural 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 260 cafes open or under contract across nine states including: Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Florida, and Texas.
