Big Plans Brewing for Biggby Coffee: 60 New Stores for 2014


East Lansing-based Biggby Coffee plans to open 60 new stores across several states in 2014, surpassing the 48 franchise units opened this year.

Biggby’s most recent location opened earlier this month at 44601 Five Mile Rd. near North Sheldon Road in Plymouth.

The company, which has 205 stores in nine states, will place a hold on any additional opening beyond the 60 until 2015, says Michael McFall, president of Biggby.

“Capping the total number of stores sold allows Biggby the ability to give the best support to its new and existing operators,” McFall says.

Established in 1995 with a single store in East Lansing, Biggby Coffee now operates in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Florida, and Texas.
