Kara McGillicuddy opens a new location in Redford Twp., Mich.


EAST LANSING, Mich. Nov. 5, 2013 – BIGGBY COFFEE in Redford Twp., Mich. will open its doors Nov. 19, 2013, located at 15138 Inkster Rd. Store owner, Kara McGillicuddy, is excited to welcome the community to her new BIGGBY store with a grand opening on Nov. 19, 2013 at 11:30 a.m.


McGillicuddy is anxious to open her store as she will also be managing her location. She got involved with BIGGBY because of her enthusiasm to own a business and become her own boss. BIGGBY reflects many of her own personal beliefs, which became a big part of her getting involved with the franchise.


“I’m excited to be opening my first BIGGBY COFFEE in Redford because I’ve already received such a warm welcome from the community and the store isn’t even open yet,” said McGillicuddy.


McGillicuddy has joined the Redford Chamber of Commerce to get more involved with the community. She enjoys giving back, making a difference for others and her BIGGBY store plans on actively getting involved with the community.


Come meet the new staff at the Redford Twp. BIGGBY COFFEE location, which will have free Wi-Fi, specialty lattes, smoothies and tea. Store hours will be Monday through Saturday 6 a.m. – 9 p.m. and Sunday 7 a.m.- 9 p.m.




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 200 cafes open or under contract across nine states including: Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Florida and Texas.
