A regional coffee chain just flipped the script on Starbucks by inviting police officers in for a free cup of coffee tomorrow, for Police Appreciation Day.
MLive reports that police officers in Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Kentucky can get a free drink at any Biggby Coffee location.
“To celebrate National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, the East Lansing-based coffee chain is offering one free 16oz beverage to law enforcement officers both retired and active. The deal is available at all participating stores”
“Tomorrow is #NationalLawEnforcementAppreciationDay, and we would like to honor all active and retired law enforcement. Stop by your local #BIGGBY for a free 16 oz beverage of your choice! We could never give you the thanks you deserve, but we can start with a cup of coffee!”

In a statement the company said “BIGGBY® COFFEE believes everyone deserves to build a life they love. Through community service, friendly coffee shops, and encouraging fundraising in their coffee shops, BIGGBY® COFFEE knows that building lives we love would not be possible without the sacrifices of our men and women in law enforcement.”
“That’s why this National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, BIGGBY® COFFEE is brewing up a special “thank you” for all law enforcement. As a way to say thank you for serving us, BIGGBY® COFFEE is serving all active and retired law enforcement one free 16oz beverage on National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, Thursday, January 9, at all participating BIGGBY® COFFEE across the nation. All you need to do is show a valid ID, and your drink is on us.”
“While it may be a small token of thanks, we hope that our nation’s active and retired law enforcement officers feel a little bit of love from BIGGYB® COFFEE as we strive to brew love into each cup we hand out.”
Founded by Bob Fish and Michael McFall on March 15, 1995, the chain now boasts of more than 230 Biggby Coffee locations across five states.
This is a refreshing change from what we have seen at some Starbucks locations across the country.
It’s good to see a business support law enforcement and if you’re in the area, grab a cup! If you are in law enforcement grab a cup on the chain.
