 Saline, Mich., April 4, 2011 – The city of Saline is “B”-uzzing with excitement as its first BIGGBY COFFEE location opens on Tuesday, April 5th. Located at 6961 East Michigan Ave., the store will celebrate its opening with a week-long celebration; featuring different daily specials both inside and through their convenient drive-thru!


Store owner Jeannine Mickeleit is no stranger to the BIGGBY COFFEE family as this marks her third store, all within Washtenaw County. “Saline is such a welcoming and friendly area that I immediately felt at home,” Mickeleit said. “It’s a great fit for BIGGBY COFFEE and I am very excited to become part of the community and serve its residents.”


The store’s grand opening day will feature $1 Grande size Butter Bears, one of BIGGBY COFFEE’s most popular drinks, and will continue to have different $1 Grande drinks and other offers throughout the week. With the drive-thru opening at 5:30am Monday-Friday (inside at 6am,) Mickeleit said is ready to serve early birds and night owls alike. The store will remain open until 9pm.

Along with implementing the traditional BIGGBY COFFEE values of being happy, making friends, loving people, having fun and drinking great coffee, Mickeleit said she is looking forward to giving back to the community through local fundraising efforts.


“At our stores the customers are really like our family,” Mickeleit said.  “We want to make their day better by showing how much we care and by offering them a hand-crafted quality product… that is something I think really sets us apart from other coffee shops.”


Along with the convenient drive-thru, the store will also feature an inviting front patio, free Wi-Fi, comfortable seating and a relaxing fireplace−all amenities that are perfect for professionals seeking a second office or as a hang out and gathering spot for family and friends.




East Lansing, Mich.-based BIGGBY® COFFEE opened a single store in March of 1995 based on the founding principle that coffee-lovers and the coffee-curious alike would benefit from a less pretentious approach to the standard gourmet café paradigm. BIGGBY COFFEE introduced connoisseur-worthy drinks with pronounceable names like Teddy Bear and Caramel Marvel, and barista staff surprised guests with simple gestures like free kazoos and bouncy balls for no other reason than to brighten their day. The “Big ‘B’” on the orange background caught on, and today BIGGBY COFFEE has 128 cafes open or under contract across six states including Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, South Carolina, Wisconsin and Texas.  For more information, visit
