Just In --- Owosso

This comment just came in.......

"Yo Bob ... why isn't there a Biggby Coffee in Shiawassee County? I've got a great location for you ... Owosso. Baker College is there and there are a ton of coffee starved Owosso and Corunna ite's who would like nothing more than to spend there days hanging around the coffee shop, or grabbing a cup of best before heading to work."

Funny you should ask...we have had Owosso on our minds for some time, and I was pretty sure we signed a franchisee in that area...so I picked up the phone to check with Sandy Green, our resident real estate guru....and after a little chit chat he told me that we already secured a location there, but that it was top secret! We struck a deal, but it needs to stay on the QT for now, but suffice it to say that the folks in both Owosso and Corunna will be happy!

For those of you that don't know Owosso splits the difference between Lansing and Flint on I-69...much like Ionia does between Lansing and GR.....Owosso has a famous castle for those that don't know....I found it on the WIKI http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curwood_Castle ....Curwood Castle is a must see if your in the neighborhood....

Hi Bob
Currently I live in Toledo, OH but my hometown is Owosso, MI. I was thrilled to see Owosso mentioned and that there would be a Bigby Coffee coming soon. Now when I go home to visit family and friends I will be able to get my favorite coffee drinks. Yea!
Thanks

Sarah beat me to it! When ARE you coming to Kenosha! We just love the staff at our local Biggby (still hard to give up calling it Beaners!!!) Especially Jen - she's the BEST! We are daily (sometimes twice daily) customers and it's the great staff that keeps us coming back!

Well, I just found out about this blog! How great to hear about your adventures this way. I have 'blogged' about Biggby (way back in September; when it was Beaners) and my love for this coffee and company. I actually met Mary a long time ago, I used to work for Two Men and A Truck and believe we met at an IFA function.
Well, you are to be commended on your success!!
