Ziggi’s Coffee was originally founded in Longmont with its first store opening at 4th Avenue and Main St in 2004.

Ziggi’s Coffee just signed its 20th franchise agreement and is expanding the business into its fifth state.

“As we continue to grow our franchise family, we are focused on finding the right partners to represent the Ziggi’s brand in diverse markets. With proof of the concept’s success in different states and markets, we are excited to bring Ziggi’s to the rest of the county…and world,” states Kathryn Bleeker, director of marketing for Ziggi’s Coffee.

After visiting several Colorado Ziggi’s locations, Claude and Aurora Jones plan to open a location in Citrus Heights, California, a city just east of Sacramento. “We had a small windfall of money, so we thought, ‘let’s do something with it. Let’s put this money to work for us,’” Claude said. “When we came across Ziggi’s, we were inspired by Brandon and Camrin’s story and it looked promising. We couldn’t wait to try the products.”

The couple officially became a part of the Ziggi’s franchise family on September 11, 2018.

“This is an exciting time to be part of the Ziggi’s franchise as we continue to draw interest inside and outside our home state of Colorado,” said CEO Brandon Knudsen who co-founded the company with his wife Camrin. “Claude and Aurora are passionate about the business and their community, making them ideal franchisees to bring our quality coffee and superior customer service to California.”

Ziggi’s Coffee has 11 locations currently open with 16 locations in development and nine stores opening soon. The franchise is expanding throughout Colorado, into Arizona, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, and now California. Soon, Ziggi’s hopes to include more states to that list.
