Bob Fish and Mary Roszel founded Biggby Coffee in 1995, opening their first shop in East Lansing, Michigan. The store, then called Beaner’s, was popular with students at nearby Michigan State University. Word spread quickly, and by 1999 Bob and Mary were ready to franchise their business. Over twelve years and one name change later, Biggby Coffee now has 132 U.S. locations.
