BIGGBY® COFFEE is Opening a Brand New Location in Downtown Kalamazoo, Michigan!

Kalamazoo, MI, May 9, 2016–BIGGBY® COFFEE is excited to announce the Grand Opening of a brand new store in downtown Kalamazoo, MI on Tuesday, May 10, 2016! This store is located on E. Michigan Ave in the heart of downtown Kalamazoo between the PNC and Chase Banks (121 E Michigan Ave Kalamazoo, MI  49007). This will be the third location for BIGGBY® owner/operators Kyle and Allan Kinney! Kyle, Allan, and their staff can’t wait to bring BIGGBY® to downtown Kalamazoo. “We have been hearing the overwhelming desire to have a BIGGBY® in the downtown area and we are proud to be the ones to bring it here!”


Kyle and Allan have two other BIGGBY® COFFEE locations in Kalamazoo and Kyle says that his dedicated staff and wonderful customers helped drive the decision to open store #3. “We are excited to be furthering our presence in the Kalamazoo area and have really been looking forward to opening a BIGGBY® COFFEE in downtown Kalamazoo.” Kyle will be behind the line at his new store and will also have a full-time manager running the day-to-day operations, which will allow him to spread his time between his three BIGGBY® COFFEE locations and ensure that things are running smoothly for his businesses.


Kyle is also looking forward to partnering with organizations and businesses in the downtown area. “We would love do whatever we can to support the downtown community and welcome any and all ideas. We’ve already made so many friends in Kalamazoo and can’t wait to get to know other business owners around us!”


Stop in and help Kyle, Allan, and their team at the downtown Kalamazoo BIGGBY® COFFEE celebrate the Grand Opening of their new store! They will be open Monday through Saturday 6:00 am to 9:00 pm and Sunday 7:00 am to 9:00 pm. If you’re a new customer, or already a fanatic, Kyle would like to offer up a drink suggestion when you visit. “The Caramel Marvel is a tried and true classic at BIGGBY® and it’s always my go-to when a customer looks unsure of what to order. I’ve not yet had someone tell me they didn’t love it!”


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