Located across from the Cascade Meijer, and next to Goodwill, the store also features a convenient drive-thru window, making the usually harsh West Michigan winters much more enjoyable with the world’s best coffee and other delicious beverages available without leaving your vehicle.


Co-owners of the location, Mark and Laurie Vandegrift, said they could not be more excited to bring the BIGGBY brand into the Cascade area, and give area residents their very own BIGGBY store.“ We have gotten a lot of great feedback from the community so far, and we are really looking forward to becoming even more of a part of this area,” Mark said.


This is the first BIGGBY franchise for Mark and Laurie, who signed with the company last May. The store will be the definition of a family-run business, with Laurie working behind the line, perfecting the art of latte making, and Mark handling more of the behind the scenes business tasks.


“We have wanted to own our own business for a long time and with BIGGBY, everything just fit together,” Mark said. “Our store will have a welcoming, fun and relaxing atmosphere where people can get together, enjoy each other’s company, and of course all the great items we have to offer.”


Along with the convenient drive-thru window, the store will also feature free Wi-Fi and the full BIGGBY COFFEE menu of gourmet coffee, tea and, frozen drinks. The store hours will be open Monday- Friday 6 a.m. – 9 p.m. and Saturday – Sunday 7 a.m. – 7 p.m.


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 ‘B’” on the orange background caught on, and today BIGGBY COFFEE has 157 cafes open or under contract across eight states including:  Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Florida, and Texas.  For more information, visit
