BIGGBY® COFFEE Adds a Third Store in “the Prairie State”

Champaign, IL, June 26, 2017- BIGGBY® COFFEE is elated to announce the opening of our latest location in the great state of Illinois! The newest member of BIGGBY® Nation will be located near Meijer across from the Murphy Gas Station (902 Meijer Dr. Champaign, IL 61822.) This is the 3rd location for owner Jim Goetz in the Champaign area.


The newest member of the BIGGBY® COFFEE family looks to jump right in as a member of the community in both involvement and support. A favorite charity supported weekly by Goetz’s other locations is The Center for Wounded Veterans at the University of Illinois. This 100% privately funded organization helps military connected students in their day-to-day lives as both students and civilians.


Come say hello to the Champaign team on June 27th as they celebrate by sharing great coffee starting at 6:00 AM! Try a classic Caramel® Marvel made perfectly hot, iced, or frozen and don’t forget to add an extra shot! BIGGBY® COFFEE Champaign will be opened Monday to Saturday 6:00 AM to 9:00 PM and Sunday 7:00 AM to 9:00 PM. B sure to stop by and welcome the crew to the community!


BIGGBY® COFFEE, East Lansing, Mich.-based, was started with a single store on March 15, 1995. One year later, and on the cusp of opening a second location, Michael McFall and Bob Fish, on a handshake and $4,000, decided to franchise the concept. BIGGBY® COFFEE’s cultural values of B happy, have fun, make friends, love people, and drink great coffee help coffee-lovers and the coffee-curious alike benefit from a less pretentious and fun approach to the standard gourmet cafe paradigm. Besides connoisseur-worthy drinks with pronounceable names like Teddy Bear® and Caramel Marvel®, BIGGBY® baristas provide a unique experience focused on brightening their customer’s day. The “Big ‘B’” on the orange background caught on, and today BIGGBY® COFFEE has 256 cafes open or under contract across nine states including: Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Florida, and Texas.
