BIGGBY COFFEE is actively seeking passionate entrepreneurs who are ready to make a difference. Our most successful owners are outgoing and community-driven entrepreneurs. We encourage our franchise owners to become actively engaged in their communities, as we’ve found that a coffee shop that supports its community is supported in return.
The support and ongoing training you’ll receive from BIGGBY is one of the key advantages of franchising with us. We provide help with everything from site selection & buildout, marketing, operational efficiency, new product development, technology, professional development, and much, much more.
BIGGBY COFFEE Franchise has several real estate formats to make entering a new market easier than ever before. BIGGBY COFFEE locations are all unique – and if you find a beautiful location with tremendous potential, we will work with you to convert that location into a beautiful BIGGBY COFFEE shop.
This is a revolutionary drive-thru and walk-up design that comes in two parts and can be assembled and running in a matter of days. This design takes up the equivalent of eight parking spaces, and that’s exactly where it’s intended to go. We help you find large parking lots that are anchored to other businesses, and because it takes up such a small footprint, you save on rent, labor, and other costs of doing business. This model is primarily a drive-thru, with a walk-up option and minimal outdoor seating. It’s designed to give your community coffee on the go. As a result, it’s one of the most affordable models in the entire coffee shop segment, and because of its built-in pieces, you can pick up and move it if a better location becomes available.
Lobby & Drive-Thru
This model is designed to help you create a beautiful coffee shop in your community, while also delivering coffee on the go. As a result, you benefit from two revenue streams and are able to meet your customer's needs. While the footprint required is flexible, we will help you find a location that helps you reduce rent and labor costs in highly desirable, highly trafficked strip centers in your community.
This is a traditional coffee shop model that is perfect for a strip center. With a small footprint of 1,200 sq. ft. on average, this model helps you save on rent in highly desirable locations. The small footprint also saves on labor, as you only need three to four employees working at a time to deliver the exceptional customer experience that Biggby Coffee is known for and to make your location feel like a home away from home.
BIGGBY COFFEE has created a model that is ideal for hospitals, college campuses, airports, and more. Our kiosks are simple to operate by design, with fewer employees, and a more streamlined menu. Owning a kiosk is also advantageous as the limited footprint also means more opportunities for more affordable lease agreements.
A coffee shop is a community-driven business that requires reaching out, networking, and engagement. BIGGBY COFFEE helps you with every aspect of getting the word out to your community and keeping them engaged. We provide comprehensive marketing support, including digital marketing, social media, promotional materials, and much, much more. We also help you get off on the right foot with our comprehensive Grand Opening plans, as well as developing new specialty items and Limited-Time-Offers to keep your customers excited to come back.
One thing that new owners quickly realize is that our support never stops. We host regular webinars and phone calls to ensure that your business is operating smoothly and that your questions are getting answered. We will also visit your store on a regular basis to support you on the ground level. We have an online database of training videos and material that are always available to help you. And of course, our team is always just a phone call away.

We recognize the fact that the majority of our franchise owners come to us with zero experience in the coffee shop business – in fact, the majority of our franchise owners have never owned a business before.
This is why BIGGBY COFFEE has created a culture of support that begins on day-one and continues every day after. We want our franchise owners to succeed, and this is why we’ve invested in a comprehensive training and ongoing support platform that helps our franchise owners in every aspect of the business.

Why do so many people love BIGGBY COFFEE? It’s simple – we love everybody! While that sounds simple, it’s actually true. Loving people is why BIGGBY COFFEE was founded 25 years ago by two friends, who are still the Co-CEOs of BIGGBY COFFEE today. It’s the reason why, after 25 years of business, we have millions of fans across the country, and it’s the reason why our franchise owners continue to reinvest in the brand by opening multiple locations.
Our coffee is sourced beyond our locations in the United States. Our Co-CEO Bob Fish and his wife Michelle, travel the world to source coffee in an ethical and environmentally responsible way. We recently partnered with Living Hope International, a non-profit organization that runs a coffee farm as a means of supporting and sustaining an orphanage in Zambia for children who otherwise would have very little hope. Living Hope International gives children 12 years of education and helps them get into college so they can give back to their Zambian communities. Aside from education and a warm bed, these children have love, laughter, and a life full of adventure.
