You might think every day is Coffee Day at the fast-growing coffee franchise, which is rapidly becoming coffee lovers’ preferred choice in markets across the country, but September 29th is a particularly special day for the brand. To mark the occasion, participating locations are offering free 20oz hot or iced brewed coffees in-store to customers all day.

That’s great news for the 62% of Americans who drink coffee every single day. Even for those who don’t celebrate coffee’s biggest holiday, who’s going to turn down a free cup of the tastiest, most comforting coffee around?


National Coffee Day is also the perfect opportunity for BIGGBY® COFFEE fans and newcomers to try the brand new single-origin farm-direct coffee, El Recreo, which just launched on September 1st.
The new single-origin was sourced through One Bigg Island in Space, which supplies ethically sourced and farm-direct coffee to BIGGBY® COFFEE locations from sustainable farmers around the world. BIGGBY® COFFEE plans to serve 50% farm-direct coffee by 2023 and 100% farm-direct coffee in the following years, in line with the brand’s mission to help franchisees, employees, customers and communities build a life they love.

One Bigg Island in Space was formed by BIGGBY® COFFEE’s co-ceo Bob Fish to partner with coffee farmers around the world who run a humane, sustainable, ethical and high-quality operation and purchase directly from them.

El Recreo comes from the El Recreo Estate Farm, a family-owned and operated 364-acre farm located in Jinotega, Nicaragua that has produced premium coffee for over 50 years. The farm has been owned by the Ferrey family since 1972.

“Most coffee is bought through a series of brokers,” said Bob Fish, co-founder and co-CEO of the BIGGBY® COFFEE brand. “Each additional broker increases the price. By eliminating them, we’re able to pass that money onto the farmer. That farmer now has the resources to pay their workers more, use better farming practices and invest in their communities.”

About The BIGGBY® COFFEE Franchise
BIGGBY® COFFEE, based in East Lansing, Mich., 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 Michael McFall, on a handshake and $4,000, decided to franchise the concept. The brand’s cultural values of Make Friends, Have Fun, B Yourself and Share Great Coffee help coffee-lovers and the coffee-curious alike benefit from a less pretentious and fun approach to the standard gourmet cafe paradigm. Besides connoisseur-worthy drinks with names like Teddy Bear® and Caramel Marvel®, BIGGBY® COFFEE baristas provide a unique experience focused on brightening their customers’ day and supporting them in building a life they love. The “Big ‘B’” on the orange background caught on, and today BIGGBY® COFFEE has more than 300 cafes across many states including Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Idaho, North Carolina, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Kentucky and Florida.
