Owosso Opening....Just amazing!

I almost got my socks blown off when I walked in the new BIGGBY COFFEE in Owosso....it was opening day and Tori was up front workin' with the cashier....and they shouted out a BIG HELLO....it's the way it's gotta be, Ya'know?

Their staff was full of smiles and enthusiasm...and one of the best I've ever seen! The store was beautiful and the music was loud, just the way it should be.....energy was poppin' everywhere!

I watched people comin' and goin', through the door, and the drive thru....everybody with a smile, 'course they were gettin' the stuff with whip cream (how can you go wrong?) They had a lot goin' on and I barely squeezed the interview in...before there was a line again! I left them 10 deep...Owosso is a location long overdue. we been want'n one there for a long time, and it looks like Owosso has been waiting too...

I interviewed Tori from behind the line, but eventually Jim wiggled his way in too...these guys are awesome...so if you get a chance give them a visit!!!!


PS they rounded the day out at 750 cups...Yahoo!
