Biggy Coffee, a brand of more than 260 units based in Lansing, Michigan, opened a store last month in White Lake, Michigan.
For 26-year-old Ford engineer Zachary Raubinger and his 25-year-old wife, Reagan, coffee is a family affair. Zachary Raubinger was first introduced to Biggby when he was 11, when he started working at his father’s store in nearby Howell. While still working full time at Ford Motor Company in IT, he knew he was entrepreneurial and fell in love with the Biggby concept. That’s why he decided to bring the brand to the White Lake community at 9228 Highland Road alongside his wife, with his father on board as a business partner.
âBusiness ownership, and more specifically franchising, has always been something that has always interested me,â Zach Raubinger said in a company press release. âIt was obvious to us to pursue our dream of being an entrepreneur with the Biggby COFFEE brand, seeing as if their model had proven itself.
The White Lake location is in a remodeled Chase Bank that features a fireplace, indoor seating, a large patio, and a conference room that will be available for hire. This location will be the third in the region and will bring 12 jobs to the market.
Biggby opened in 1995 with just one store.
