Ziggi’s Coffee will be bringing three more units of its popular drive-thru business model to the Northern Colorado region and beyond with the signing of its latest franchise agreement. Kip Farnsworth and Tracy Finley, local residents of Firestone, Colorado know a whole lot about this once small town coffee shop turned thriving franchise system.
Farnsworth and Finley have an interesting story that has Ziggi’s Coffee taking center stage. As childhood friends, they grew up in Longmont, Colorado, where Ziggi’s Coffee was founded. They attended elementary and middle school together but eventually lost touch. Over 25 years passed when as fate would have it, they were reconnected via social media. Their first date was at their local Ziggi’s Coffee.
“This company really means something to us,” says Finley. “It’s where our relationship began, and now, years later, it’s going to be the start of a new career venture for us. It has just been a perfect fit.”
Both entrepreneurs, Finley has owned her own salon for 15 years, while Farnsworth works in real estate. They decided the time was right to diversify and of course, it had to be with coffee.
“Tracy has always talked about owning a coffee shop and I kept seeing Ziggi’s popping up everywhere I looked; the timing was just right,” adds Farnsworth.
“What really stood out to me was that Ziggi’s clearly has a proven formula that continues to work at every location. Their systems are apparent in their growth and with their entire team,” says Finley.
The couple is currently eyeing locations from Brighton, Colorado to Laramie, Wyoming. Their agreement allows them to open three units and with Farnsworth’s real estate background and the dedicated team at Ziggi’s Coffee, the couple is confident they will find the most viable options available.
