BIGGBY® COFFEE Joins Celina, Ohio, Community

East Lansing, MI, March 7, 2019–BIGGBY® COFFEE is excited to announce the opening of a new coffee shop in Celina, Ohio, on Tuesday, March 12. This new coffee shop, at 615 Grand Lake Road, will be the first in Celina. Conveniently located near the Shell Gas Station and Walmart Supercenter, this new coffee shop is close to Ohio’s largest interior lake, Grand Lake St. Marys. BIGGBY® COFFEE is excited to serve the world’s best coffee to this new community.


Owner/Operator Jon Sell is looking forward to the opening of his second store, the first located in St. Marys, Ohio. Celina residents can expect to see Sell and his team throughout the community, as this is one of his favorite parts of being a BIGGBY® COFFEE owner/operator.


“I chose BIGBY® because of the core values, as well as BIGGBY®’s encouragement for each owner/operator to invest in the local communities we are in, as this is something that is very important to me. I love being involved in the community and getting to know those in the community, and BIGGBY® provides the opportunity to do just that,” Sell said.


With core values like “Make friends,” “Be yourself,” Have fun,” and “Share great coffee,” BIGGBY® COFFEE is known for their unintimidating, fun, and approachable coffee shops. Serving popular drinks like the Teddy Bear® and Caramel Marvel®, BIGGBY® COFFEE is a place for young and old alike.

BIGGBY® COFFEE, East Lansing, Mich.-based, 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. BIGGBY® COFFEE’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 pronounceable names like Teddy Bear® and Caramel Marvel®, BIGGBY® baristas provide a unique experience focused on brightening their customer’s 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 230 cafes across 9 states and counting including Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Florida, and Texas. In 2018, BIGGBY® launched an Area Representative Program and currently has 8 area representatives in 6 states.
