MARQUETTE — A Michigan based coffee shop is now open in Marquette. Biggby Coffee had it’s ribbon cutting ceremony today and it will open to the public tomorrow. The new shop is located on Wright Street off of US–41. According to their website, Biggby Coffee is the fastest growing gourmet coffee franchise in the U.S.

A UP resident owns the shop with his family, who found Marquette to be a perfect fit for their Biggby franchise.

Co–owner Landon Palmer says, “You know, we had the option to put our Biggby basically in five other cities in Michigan, and after touring them and doing some surveillance of the cities it was a no–brainer that Marquette was where we wanted it, to put the coffee shop–passionate about Marquette and passionate about this area. Not only do you get a great latte, you get also an experience every time you come in. Our barista’s are going to get to know your name, we just enjoy the people here just as much as the coffee.”

The coffee shop is open seven days a week, with a full drink and food menu. Biggby offers coffee drinkers free WI–FI on site.
