The idea was born when a traditional food service store couldn’t support a drive-thru and owner Jeff Konczak thought he needed one. One day over lunch, he sketched plans for a modular drive-thru on the back of a napkin.
Jeff pitched his idea to Biggby Coffee, America’s fastest growing coffee franchise. They loved it! The first BCubed for Biggby Coffee store was installed in 2018 with the 40e building whose installation is scheduled for the fall of 2022.
Manufactured in a reclaimed foundry in Alpena MI, BCubed units are premium, self-contained, sectional buildings with drive-thru service. BCubed Manufacturing buildings are “plug and play” because they are pre-wired and pre-wired. It is a mobile and expandable capital investment.
