Ziggi’s Coffee, a rapidly growing U.S.-based, drive-thru coffee franchise dedicated to the promise of being “the best part of your day”, has experienced meteoric growth and shows no sign of slowing down.

The brand continues its mission of expanding its franchise family with only the very best candidates. With over 36 open locations, and more than 90 in development, Ziggi’s continues to grow as a leader within the billion-dollar coffee industry.

More than just coffee

Ziggi’s diverse menu has something for everyone. With over 50 drinks, Ziggi’s menu features high-quality espresso drinks made with the finest specialty coffee roasted in Denver, Colorado. Many of its signature recipes can be prepared hot, iced, or blended.

For those who desire caffeinated non-coffee options, menu favorites include Red Bull Infusions – fruit-inspired flavors paired with Red Bull or Red Bull Sugarfree – matcha tea, chai teas, and more. The menu also features a robust selection of caffeine-free options like real fruit smoothies, Campfire Cocoa, Italian sodas and more.

Maybe most unique to Ziggi’s is its signature kidZone menu – fun, caffeine-free drinks that are the perfect size (and price) for young kids – making Ziggi’s a family favorite.

Ziggi’s menu is rounded out with an impressive selection of high-quality food items. Delicious breakfast burritos, breakfast sandwiches, artisan bread slices, cookies, and more are served on-the-go at all café and drive-thru locations.

All the alternatives – something for everyone

Ziggi’s has seen an increase in demand for various alternatives from health-conscious consumers and customers with various food allergies. The brand has been a leader in this category offering dairy-free alternatives like almond, coconut, soy, and oat milk for most of its signature offerings as well as many sugar-free flavor options so everyone can enjoy the “the best part of their day”.

“At Ziggi’s Coffee, the brand’s commitment goes far beyond what’s in the cup”

Ziggi’s also offers a robust selection of gluten-free options, unique to the industry, including a gluten-free breakfast sandwich, bread slices, and more. With a focus on sustainability, Ziggi’s adopted sip-through lids for its cold beverages and offers agave-made straws, a 100 per cent biodegradable, eco-friendly option.

A community focus

Focusing on exceptional service and being a pillar in the community is at the core of who Ziggi’s Coffee is and has been since the brand’s inception in 2004. Working shifts behind the counter, founders Brandon and Camrin Knudsen quickly built relationships with each customer that eventually established their initial café location as a community hub and gathering space.

As the business has expanded to multiple locations with a strong focus on drive-thrus, the core of Ziggi’s corporate training is still rooted in the importance of building authentic relationships by encouraging staff to learn and greet regulars by name, giving each shop a more personal, small-town feel and making it a favorite for locals.

Life-changing coffee

At Ziggi’s Coffee, the brand’s commitment goes far beyond what’s in the cup. Ziggi’s impacts lives. For customers, the mission to be “the best part of their day” brings smiles to customer’s faces all over the country every day. For franchisees, Ziggi’s provides one of the most secure ways to enter the amazing coffee industry.

It’s a chance to take control, leave a legacy, and do fulfilling work that changes families for generations to come. For the Ziggi’s corporate team, the company offers a path for not only career advancement but the opportunity to be a part of a family doing good in local communities.

The commitment doesn’t stop there. Ziggi’s carefully fosters relationships with vendors that not only fit the high-quality product standards of their stores, but companies that have impactful stories of their own.

This includes utilizing a coffee roasting partner that imparts real change at the growing source by providing resources for their communities and teaching farmers how to grow better coffee.

Ziggi’s has also supported many vendors throughout the recent pandemic by relying on them to continue supplying products at all Ziggi’s Coffee locations providing an avenue for business to thrive during a time where many were not operating. Their stories are powerful, and the roots run deep, grounding the Ziggi’s concept in making the world a better place.

What are people saying about Ziggi’s?

It is not just customers who are raving about Ziggi’s everyday online and in stores; franchisees also validate the Ziggi’s support program, and many are expanding to multiple units as a result. With current expansion of existing franchisees and new multi-unit franchisees entering the system all over the U.S., it’s clear Ziggi’s has developed programs, support, technology, and a brand focused on franchisee success.

Using over a decade of operational excellence, Ziggi’s has developed a detailed roadmap for franchisees from the moment they sign a franchise agreement and enter the launch program, to when they open their store and beyond.
