Coffee is one of the world's most beloved and important commodities. The coffee shop industry is worth $47.5 billion. If you are looking to get your piece of this billion dollar industry, then the Biggby Coffee franchise could be for you. it is a specialty coffee shop that strives to provide great coffee and a place for communities to come together. It was founded by Bob Fish and Mary Roszel in Lansing, Michigan, in 1994. Since it began franchising in 1999, the brand has grown to over 260 locations across 13 states in the Midwest and Southeast of the U.S. All of its locations are franchise operated because they are focused on making the brand a part of whatever community they are in. Bob Fish and Mary Roszel teamed with Michael McFall to form Global Orange Development and begin franchising. In 2007, the company's name was changed to Biggby Coffee, and all existing franchises were converted to the new brand.
This is an attractive franchise opportunity for prospective franchise owners because the franchise developed business models for every setting. These include high-end strip centers, freestanding buildings, and non-traditional locations, such as hospitals, travel plazas, airports, and college campuses. The brand recently came out with BCubed, a location model that takes up the equivalent of eight parking spaces and is a drive-thru and walk-up model that is designed to serve the customer on-the-go. Addiotnally, the coffee franchise is heavily involved in communities and is part of the VetFran Program, which helps veterans get franchise opportunities.
