BIGGBY COFFEE - BIG RAPIDS, opening day :)

Wow…these guys are on fire…and they understand the ‘BIGGBY way!’ I didn’t really have the time to visit…I was chained to a desk today until 1pm, and then I had the privilege to see some HB students make presentations on BIGGBY cafes (top notch job….btw.) But I got there anyway :) and I'm glad I did!!!

Life is good, people are strong, and Big Rapids is the luckiest place on earth right now…. I cannot imagine a better set of operators…I have had the opportunity to interview Julie and Tammy several times….each occasion was an honor. They have it! The ‘Chi’, the ‘Midas’…the right PE ratio! It never fails…the power of positive thinking and pure focus overwhelms everything else….I am so impressed…Watch!

Whoa, Jason Nash, watch your back! Julie and Tammy are gunning for the "biggest opening ever" record!

Congrats on the opening you two--you've done a great job start to "finish" (well, start to uh, start).

Keep it up! -JD

I live in Big Rapids and just this morning I walked to Biggby Coffee from home. This was my 1st ever Biggby experience. Delicious! I was wearing a K college t-shirt and a man working there noted that the president of Biggby was an alumni- good choice! Maybe that's why the logo is school colors?!

So, I love the location, right by campus. Free coffee the 1st week- what more could you ask for! I think it was a great idea to open one, can't wait til fall, that place will be jam packed. Congrats on a successful opening!!!
