BIGGBY BOB and DIGBY

I had an appointment in Chelsea MI today...at the Common Grill. I was meeting some friends in the industry to talk shop...but I was hoping that I would run into Craig too, Chef/Owner of the Common Grill

I decided to take Digby with me...and test his navigation skills. Well, basically I knew where I was going (cuz I love the Common Grill), and so Digby and I just chatted about England (it's where he is from....and I used to live there)

We had fun listening to 'The Clash -- London Calling'....and talking about places we have been. I had a great lunch with D&D...and learned a lot. In the middle of lunch Craig stopped out to say hello....I have known him since my egg flippen' days...and I hadn't seen him since he went to Italy with his family...Lunch was awesome. Thanks Craig!

Here is a little of the drive...

I live near the great city of Grand Haven Mi, and just to put a bug in your ear we need a Biggby's there can you see what you could do. Its a great city with lots of coffee drinkers and the potential for good business is awesome. I'm just sayin....

It looks like the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

I wonder, will Digby have his own blog as well? Nigel and Pierce's are fun!

I was just thinking that myself jd =) A blog for Digby would be smashing fun! A monkeys point of view from the inside of Biggby.
Maybe we would finally get the expresso cups that are managable size for plushies. Stamp the big "B" on it and good to go.

When are you coming to Richmond, VA, Bob? There are few coffee shops here, mostly Starbucks, but we sure could use a nice Biggby! After hearing so much about it, I just can't wait to try a cup of your delicious coffee!

I think Digby should shadow everyone at HQ. Then he could have a block of time at the B-phone to handle all the calls from Biggby plushies around the country. He may even come up with a new drink just for plushies. Then a marketing campaign and custom mugs. There are endless possibilities. A movie called Digby at Biggbys. I can see it all. Keep us posted Digby:

Digby is a welcome addition to the team. He will keep Bob on the straight and narrow... He can always hang out with me. I promise I won't pack him in a box and ship him accidentally. The company would be welcome! Cathy

He brought his plush Cuppa with him on his trip to stay with Bob. I crocheted it with orange yarn for the cup, black for the handle and a yummy coffee color on top.

Digby!Bob-we're massively impressed by the company you keep. We agree--we need a Digby commentary on life at Biggby's...maybe a plushies review of various menu choices.
