Michigan’s Favorite Coffee Retailer Opens its Third Store in Livingston County


HARTLAND, Mich., Nov. 17, 2010 – BIGGBY® COFFEE arrives in Hartland, Mich. next week when its newest store, located at 11325 Highland Road, opens its doors at 6 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 22.  It’s the third BIGGBY COFFEE for Livingston County and the first for husband and wife team of entrepreneurs Mike and Denise Bogues.


Beginning Monday, Nov. 22 Michigan’s newest BIGGBY COFFEE will gift patrons with free samples of its signature gourmet coffee drinks—a different specialty each day—throughout the week. In addition, free tumblers will be offered on Monday while supplies last.


The store will offer free brewed coffee all week long, making it the perfect spot to avoid holiday shopping crowds—after all, nothing beats receiving a BIGGBY COFFEE gift card except perhaps shopping for them while sipping delicious free coffee!


Local Michigan band Overdrive Orchestra will perform a special concert on Wed., Nov. 24 at 7 p.m. and students from Milford Music store in Highland will join the festivities with performances throughout the weekend.


Mike Bogues has traded a successful career in information technology for the dream of owning his own business while pursuing his MBA in management. His wife Denise will continue to teach at Hartland High School while she helps operate the family’s first business in evenings and on weekends.


“As first-time business owners, we couldn’t ask for a better group of people to work with than the team at BIGGBY COFFEE,” said Mike Bogues. “This decision for us is all about doing what we love, following our dreams and making a small difference in the lives of our customers. We’re looking forward to having a place where everyone feels welcome and friendships are formed each day.”


BIGGBY COFFEE of Hartland is open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sundays.  The store features free Wi-Fi connections and the full menu of BIGGBY COFFEE favorites.




East Lansing, Mich.-based BIGGBY® COFFEE opened a single store in March of 1995 based on the founding principle that coffee-lovers and the coffee-curious alike would benefit from a less pretentious approach to the standard gourmet café paradigm. BIGGBY COFFEE introduced connoisseur-worthy drinks with pronounceable names like Teddy Bear and Caramel Marvel, and barista staff surprised guests with simple gestures like free kazoos and bouncy balls for no other reason than to brighten their day.  The “Big Orange ‘B’” caught on, and today BIGGBY COFFEE has 124 stores open and/or under contract to open across six states including Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, South Carolina, Texas and Wisconsin.  For more information, visit www.biggby.com.
