“We are overwhelmed with gratitude for the massive turnout on our opening day,” reads a statement posted by the company through social media.

Founded in 1995 in East Lansing, Michigan, all of the 350 Biggby Coffee locations across the country are owned and operated locally. The Ocala location is owned by Xavier Marquez and Elijah Schoonard, who previously worked for Biggby.

The business is hoping to become the “go-to coffee shop in the community” and a place where “people want to work,” according to a statement from their public relations representative.

On Tuesday, the shop enjoyed long lines of customers eager to try the product offering, which includes brewed coffee (hot or iced), cold brews, cappuccinos, Americanos, iced tea, hot chocolate, and lemonade.
