June 23, 2015 // Franchising.com // MI MARQUETTE, MI -
BIGGBY® COFFEE is slated to open its second location in Michigan's
Upper Peninsula on Tuesday June, 23, 2015 at the corner of US41 and
Wright street, next to the Arby's and U.P Hair Company. Owned by
the Palmer Family; Rodney, Eileen, Austin, and Landon, the store
will be managed full time by, Landon Palmer who lives in Marquette.
"We had the option of putting our second store in several locations
in the Lower Peninsula of Michigan. After touring through a couple
towns, there was not a doubt in our minds that Marquette was where
we wanted to have our store. We've spent a good chunk of our lives
up here in the U.P., Marquette being one of those places, it simply
does not get better than Marquette." Landon said. "Marquette is
hands down the coolest, most unique, and exciting place to live in
Michigan. I have been very passionate about the U.P for my entire
life, especially Marquette. The people are genuine, the scenery is
breathtaking, and I can't think of anywhere else in the world that
I'd rather open a BIGGBY® COFFEE." The Palmer family has a home and
relatives in the U.P., in Rock, MI a small town located just south
Landon and the Palmer family are not just excited to be bringing
BIGGBY® to Marquette but they are looking forward to becoming part
of the community and the atmosphere. "Every time I cross the bridge
and enter the U.P, I am immediately overwhelmed with excitement,
fresh air, and friendly interactions from the most genuine people
you will ever meet. There is no place I would rather live, spend my
time, and serve BIGGBY® COFFEE. The city of Marquette is full of
amazing businesses, people, and a unique culture of its own."
[B]ing involved in the community is a BIGG deal to BIGGBY®
COFFEE. Landon and the Palmer family have enjoyed working with
Marquette businesses to get their new store ready for the Grand
Opening on June 23rd. Once BIGGBY® Marquette is up and brewing,
Landon plans on becoming heavily involved within the community.
According to Landon "It's a close knit community, so I'm excited to
work with other businesses and help this community thrive." He aims
to form partnerships with the Chamber of Commerce, Northern
Michigan University, and Marquette Schools along other community
organization and non-profits. These represent just a small portion
of the ways BIGGBY® Marquette plans to get involved.
Stop in and help Landon celebrate the Grand Opening of the
U.P.'s second BIGGBY® COFFEE. Located at the corner of US41 and
Wright Street, next to the Arby's and U.P Hair Company (3165 Wright

recommends the Carmel Marvel® to new customers, either hot or
frozen, but also says to ask any of the baristas for suggestions.

if you're not a coffee drinker!"
About BIGGBY® COFFEE
East Lansing, Mich.-based BIGGBY® COFFEE 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 243 cafes
open or under contract across nine states including: Michigan,
Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Kentucky,
Florida and Texas.
