BIGGBY COFFEE -- Escanaba...Packed and Full

Wow! It was a 6 hour drive, that started at 3 am....but, boy was it worth it!

These guys are hot....I walked into a packed dinning room....that had so much energy...ya' could've lit the whole U.P.:)

People are really diggin' it....everybody comin' in, is soooo excited! I mean people are really appreciative that this store is here...that the building is beautiful, that there is an investment in the community...the bankers have been here, the real estate people have been here, friends and well wishers, teachers, residents, community leaders....I am stunned at the support this store is getting....it's really reflective of the ownership of this store!

Cyndi is awesome....she knows absolutely everybody!...I mean everybody! She is the epitomy of BIGGBY E-squared (energy and excitement) There is no way you could leave here without a big grin on your face. She is on top of it, and then some!

Congratulations Pat and Cyndi...I am so proud of what you've done!

I am sooo happy to see that Escanaba finally has a Biggby. Now when I leave East Lansing and head to Escanaba to visit my family, I can still get my favorite coffee!!

Congrats, and I can't wait to visit the new store in a couple of weeks!! You just made my day:)

Glad to see Biggby moving into the UP! Will have to detour through Esky on my next trip "home" just for Biggby coffee!!

I'm thrilled that there is a Biggby in Esky! We travel there to visit my family now and then, and it will be so nice to find an excellent cup of coffee nearby downtown! I'm looking forward to visiting your store with some great service and smiling faces!

I heard you speak in Mr. Flasters class this past week and I was really impressed. As a long time loyal fan of Biggby's, I was really excited to hear you speak about the company. My thoughts on Biggby's in the U.P. below.....

Wow it is so awesome to see Biggby's in the U.P. eh? Our family has a cabin near by and honestly we plan our trip routes through Michigan based on where Biggby's locations are. For example, we always stop in Brighton on our way to the Detroit Auto Show every year. Or I try to stop at the Biggby's in Marshall on my way home from work if I need an afternoon pick me up. (I work in Battle Creek). We also travel to Canada several times a year and you can guarnatee that we have locations mapped out before we leave the house :).

Even our dogs love Biggby's.... they usually eat the whip cream - i'll try to send a picture some time :) Keep up the great work!

You are right though it was great to see Cyndi and Pat last week even though they made me shovel snow!
