About the Author

Born and raised in Michigan, Michael J. McFall began his journey with BIGGBY(R) COFFEE at the original store in East Lansing in 1996--as a minimum-wage barista. Over the span of twenty-two years, with business partner Bob Fish, he has helped create one of the great specialty coffee brands in America. Today Mike is co-CEO with Bob, and BIGGBY has over 250 stores open in 9 states. The company is in high growth mode, selling tens of thousands of cups of coffee each day. Mike is proud to say that BIGGBY is building a healthy, awesome, thriving organization.
