FINDLAY — The beans are spilled — Biggby Coffee will soon open in Findlay. The store, owned by Fostorian Angie Briggs, is set to open Dec. 8.
As part of the store’s opening week promotion, Biggby will offer free brewed coffee to customers Dec. 8-13
Briggs said she had explored other coffee franchises to open, but Biggby stood out to her above the other choices.
“I agreed with their business philosophy and the way they put the customers first,” Briggs said.
She said she first discovered the Michigan-based franchise in Toledo, when she met some friends at a Biggby location.
“The staff was friendly, the atmosphere was inviting and the signature drinks were consistently better,” Briggs said in a press release regarding the store. “I expect that coffee lovers in Findlay are going to be pleased.”
Briggs said she also feels Biggby gives good support to its franchise owners, another reason she opted to open a Biggby shop.
The Findlay store will start off with 19 employees, and six additional employees will join the crew after the start of next year.
Briggs said that the most difficult part of working towards the opening of the store was balancing the time needed at the business with time at home. “It’s taken a lot of time marrying family and work,” Briggs said.
The store is located at 2560 Tiffin Ave., in front of the eastside Wal-Mart. Hours are 6 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Saturday, and 7 a.m.-8 p.m. Sunday. The location includes free wireless Internet and a drive-thru window. For more information on the Biggby store and a list of menu items, visit www.biggbycoffee.com.
