Biggby Coffee coming to Cedar Springs

biggbylogofcCoffee chain to move into storefront just off 17 Mile at White Creek Avenue

By Judy Reed

Come this December, there will be a new coffee shop serving people in the greater Cedar Springs area. Bob and Deb Garza, of Sand Lake, are opening a new Biggby Coffee in the strip mall on White Creek Avenue, just north of KFC.

The coffee shop will be next to the Laundromat, and will include a drive thru on the back of the building. Patrons will enter in the north drive and follow that to the rear of the building and turn left to get to the board and drive thru window.

They are doing full renovations to the store, and have already completed major framing, the piping, and some of the electrical. Bob Garza said the project will cost about $300,000, and will bring about 15-22 jobs to Cedar Springs.

The Garzas acquired the franchise in 2014, and had looked at a couple of other sites before deciding on the current one. Both a potential site behind the Citgo station at 17 Mile and White Creek, and where the Family Fare pharmacy was located were under consideration previously.

During the time that they were trying to secure a location in Cedar Springs, Garza said he could have chosen locations in other areas, such as Fremont, but he wanted to stay in Cedar Springs.

He said his two daughters went to Cedar Springs Schools (one graduated two years ago and one is now a senior), he has coached soccer, and Deb coaches cheer.

“We stayed in Cedar Springs because we are the best owners for the area, being we are from the community,” he said.
