Peggy Rector, store owner, is celebrating her BIGGBY store’s fifth birthday.


EAST LANSING, Mich. Jan. 27, 2014– BIGGBY COFFEE of Lima, Ohio, is celebrating its fifth birthday on Feb. 10, 2014 with great specials and giveaways all week. Peggy Rector is happy in welcoming the community to help celebrate.


“We are thankful for the huge support the community has given us throughout the years. The customers make us successful, and we appreciate their business. Many are like family to my baristas and me. They have made BIGGBY a household name and for that, we are thankful,” said Rector.


Rector is just as excited today operating her store as she was five years ago. She still sees new customers visit and quickly become BIGGBY fanatics. Her enthusiasm is shown through her accolades such as winning 2013 Store of the Year, voted by her customers.


“I provide drinks for many events; most of them are non profit. The payoff for me is people recognizing me from those events and appreciating what I did for them. Many don’t know my name because they know me as ‘the BIGGBY lady,’” said Rector.


Visit Rector’s BIGGBY store at 717 N. Cable Rd. to wish happy birthday and grab your favorite cup of coffee!






East Lansing, Mich.-based BIGGBY® COFFEE was started with a single store on March 15, 1995. One year later, and on the cusp of opening a second location, Bob Fish and his business partner Michael McFall, on a handshake and $3,000, decided to franchise the concept. BIGGBY COFFEE’s core 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 café 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 206 cafes open or under contract across nine states including: Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Florida and Texas.
