GRANDVILLE, Mich., Sept. 28, 2010 – BIGGBY® COFFEE will open a new location inside of RiverTown Crossings Mall in Grandville on Thursday, Sept. 30.  To celebrate, the new store will reward shoppers with a free brewed coffee pick-me-up through Oct. 3.


Tim Barker operates four Grand Rapids-area BIGGBY COFFEE stores, and he looks forward to operating the franchise’s first mall kiosk.


“Rivertown Crossings represents the perfect opportunity to bring gourmet coffee to those who may need it most,” said Barker.  “Our menu will consist of snacks and specialty drinks, so it’ll be super easy to grab a fresh Pumpkin Spice Latte or Caramel Marvel to turn an already great day of shopping into an awesome one.”


The RiverTown Crossing’s BIGGBY COFFEE will be open during mall hours from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and noon to 6 p.m. on Sundays.


The store will offer baked goods and the full menu of BIGGBY COFFEE gourmet beverage selections.




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 120 stores open and/or under contract to open across six states including Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, South Carolina, Texas and Wisconsin.  For more information, visit
