BIGGBY COFFEE becomes a movie set!



A note from Jenene

Tom,

Fyi - Movie shoot occurred today in the store. What an exciting day!!! Unfortunately I wasn't able to see the actual scene, but I did see the short version of rehearsal when I was able to correct the script. The script called for the customer to mention a "Frappacino" and I was kind enough to point out that wasn't a word in the Biggby Dictionary. Cups were stacked everywhere with the intention of having them fly when the stunt man threw the barista into them. It was a 'swarm' of big B's. Additional shots were taken from outside presumably with Biggby Coffee in plain sight. For the most part everyone around us was excited and there's been quite a bit of chatter about it, including on a couple of radio stations. The actors donned our orange polo shirts (one was donated by an ex-employee who was all too thrilled with the idea that his shirt was going to be seen in a movie). Thought you would like to know that the Biggby logo was very evident in the scene of this movie.



I'm sending through some mediocre pictures - best I could do from my iPhone.

Companies hire consultants and spend big money to get this kind of product placement. Cool!
