BIGGBY® COFFEE franchise offers a path to build the life you love

Franchising with BIGGBY® COFFEE is a decision to improve your life for the better. As a brand where all locations are franchised, this is a decision that we take seriously.

Since we began franchising in 1995, BIGGBY® COFFEE has grown rapidly in the Midwest and beyond, with over 260 locations across 13 states. In that time, we’ve won millions of fans, have made communities stronger, and most importantly, have helped our franchise owners achieve their goals of owning a successful coffee shop in the places they live and love.

The true measurement of our success as a brand is how successful our franchise owners are in their stores. We’re proud to say that the majority of our growth over the last 20+ years has come from our existing franchise owners investing in their second, third and fourth locations. We’re proud that our business model has helped propel almost 50% of our franchise owners into multi-unit ownership. This is truly the sign of a healthy franchise system.

“It’s fabulous to serve people a cup of coffee and make a dollar off of it, but what’s really meaningful is to help people build the life they love,” says Bob Fish, CEO and co-founder of BIGGBY® COFFEE. “If it’s all about money, that’s okay – we have a system that works – but BIGGBY® COFFEE appeals to people who have a higher calling. Our franchise owners are people who love their communities, love their employees, and love making people happy. Their passion is what enables them to do so well, and as a franchisor, it’s our responsibility to take their passion and help them succeed. That’s what sets our BIGGBY® COFFEE franchise opportunity apart from other brands, and it’s why our franchise owners continue to reinvest by opening multiple locations.”

BIGGBY® COFFEE boasts higher than average sales compared to the rest of the coffee shop industry. Our business model is designed to help our franchise owners maximize profitability and operate nimbly and effectively. This proves that our shops are streamlined to reduce ongoing costs, and our simple menu is engineered for speed and efficiency.

A simple to run coffee shop with low operating costs, exceptional products, and incredible customer service is a business that any passionate, community-driven entrepreneur can get behind.
