Mount Pleasant, Mich., June 3, 2009 –BIGGBY COFFEE of Mount Pleasant, located at 4445 E Bluegrass Road, is reopening under new management this coming Tuesday, June 9. Husband and wife entrepreneurs James and Lori DeYoung plan to host a number of free product tastings, in addition to a first-come, first-serve coffee mug giveaway in celebration of the event.


The DeYoungs opened their first BIGGBY COFFEE location nearly one year ago in Mason, Mich. The location quickly became one of the high-volume stores within the franchise; an experience that forced the DeYoungs to consider a second franchise rather quickly.


“We’ve been fortunate enough to operate a successful café in a community that displayed tremendous support for our efforts right out of the gate,” said co-owner Lori DeYoung. “As a result, we love our jobs, we love the brand, and we see it as an amazing opportunity to bring the right approach to BIGGBY fans in Mount Pleasant.”


The 1,800 square-foot Mount Pleasant café features free Wi-Fi connections, comfortable soft seating, and a convenient drive-thru window for BIGGBY fans on the go.


The café originally opened for business in February, 2008.  It closed its doors this past March, 2009 as a result of local ownership turn-over.




East Lansing, Mich.-based BIGGBY COFFEE was founded in March 1995 and began franchise operations in 1999.  Today, the Company has 103 stores open across six states including Michigan, Ohio, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and Wisconsin.  BIGGBY COFFEE features more than 30 gourmet coffee, fine tea and frozen drink selections in addition to an assortment of pastries and other fine eatables.
