Energetic, Fun, and Unintimidating Coffee Shop Continues to Grow in Kentucky

East Lansing, MI, February 14, 2019–BIGGBY® COFFEE is excited to announce the opening of a new coffee shop in Taylor Mill, Kentucky, on Tuesday, February 19. This new coffee shop will be the fourth in Northern Kentucky. This new BIGGBY® COFFEE is conveniently located near Remke Market, Lucky Duck Pub, Scott High School, and Woodland Middle School, at 5042 Old Taylor Mill Rd, Taylor Mill, Kentucky.


On February 19, the first 50 customers will receive a free gift with their purchase! To top that off, Taylor Mill Mayor Daniel L. Bell plans to stop by and present the new BIGGBY® COFFEE location with a plaque and welcome to the city.


Owner/Operators Michael and Holly Chatterton look forward to the challenge of joining the BIGGBY® COFFEE brand. Driven by the delicious coffee and other beverages and the friendly and welcoming atmosphere they believe BIGGBY® COFFEE is just what Taylor Mill, Kentucky, needs.


“I am most excited about filling a need and want for a coffee shop in the community. There is an electrifying buzz in Taylor Mill, Independence, and the surrounding communities about the opening of the store,” Michael said.

With a purpose to help support people in building a life they love, BIGGBY® COFFEE is so excited to meet customers where there is a need for a fun, unintimidating, and energetic coffee shop. BIGGBY® COFFEE, which has the core beliefs “When you love the world, the world will love you back,” “Everyone deserves to feel special,” and “Coffee brings people together,” is excited about this expansion and hopes to help build even more people up both as a workplace and in the community.


This new store will be the fourth store to open in Northern Kentucky under Area Representative Shanna Novosel. The Area Representative program allows experienced, local BIGGBY® COFFEE owner/operators to help facilitate the signing of, build out, and opening of new BIGGBY® COFFEE areas in their assigned area. This program, which began in 2018, gives new owner/operators education, wisdom, help, and encouragement from BIGGBY® COFFEE owner/operators in their area that are succeeding with their BIGGBY® COFFEE business.




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 281 cafes open or under contract across 10 states including: Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Florida, Texas, and New Jersey. In 2018, BIGGBY® launched an Area Representative Program and currently has 8 area representatives in 6 states.
