BIGGBY® COFFEE is Opening a Brand New Location in White Pigeon, MI!


White Pigeon, MI, October 3, 2016–BIGGBY® COFFEE is excited to announce the Grand Opening of a brand new store in White Pigeon, MI on Tuesday, October 4, 2016! This brand new store is located on US 12, east of US 131 and in front of the Forest River plant (510 W. Chicago Rd. White Pigeon, MI  49099). This will be the first BIGGBY® location for new owner/operators Shari Morris and Christy Dolph! Shari is the store owner and Christy will be managing the day-to-day operations. “The reason for choosing to open a BIGGBY® in White Pigeon was we felt there was a need for this type of establishment in our area. A place where people of all ages can come to relax with friends and family and enjoy the wide variety of offerings,” said Shari.


Shari and her family own many other businesses in the White Pigeon area and are excited for this new adventure in coffee! “We are longtime residents of White Pigeon and are strong supporters of our village and surrounding communities. We want people to stay and do business in our town! We hope this also draws people in from surrounding areas to visit and get to know our community.”


Giving back is one of the BIGGBY® COFFEE core values and Shari and Christy fully intend to bring that to life in their store! Shari is no stranger to building a clientele in the White Pigeon area and she has plans to get to know the community in a different way with BIGGBY®! “The Morris family has been involved in the community for many generations, from home construction to excavating. We would like to get the area more involved in our community by bringing people together at BIGGBY®. We will be starting with a pumpkin painting contest and Halloween party during our grand opening month in October. We will also be sponsoring a semi-truck show and car show at White Pigeon Days in 2017!”


Stop in and help the White Pigeon team celebrate the Grand Opening of their new BIGGBY® store! They will be open Monday through Saturday 5:00 am to 8:00 pm and Sunday 7:00 am to 8:00 pm. Shari would like to offer up a drink suggestion when you visit the new store. “I love the Red Bull Creme Freeze with strawberries and a banana! That’s right, we have much more than just coffee! We’d love to help you find YOUR perfect drink. Whether you live here or are just passing through White Pigeon, stop in and see what BIGGBY® has to offer!”


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, Michael McFall and Bob Fish, on a handshake and $4,000, decided to franchise the concept. BIGGBY® COFFEE’s cultural 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 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. The “Big ‘B’” on the orange background caught on, and today BIGGBY® COFFEE has 260 cafes open or under contract across nine states including: Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Florida, and Texas.
