Come early next year, Anthem will be the home of a new Ziggi’s Coffee drive-thru location.
The franchise coffee company was approved for a site plan in Commerce Park by Anthem’s board of directors on Sept. 28, having previously received approval from the city of Phoenix. Owners Cheryl Clark-Stoner and Larry Adams are excited to get to know their community and be a part of a company they believe in.
“We certainly are looking forward to working with the community and developing some sort of steady customers, some regulars,” Adams said. He expressed his excitement at creating a team of employees passionate about coffee and serving customers in a lively, family-oriented environment.
The drive-thru building will be constructed by Phoenix Design Group and occupy 624 square feet on the site, according to a document. The owners project its construction to wrap up in March, followed by the location’s grand opening for the community several weeks later.
Its menu will offer Ziggi’s Coffee staples, from classic hot and iced coffees to a variety of blended drinks, teas, Red Bull infusions, Italian sodas and smoothies. Its spread also includes seasonal drinks, muffins, scones, cookies, breakfast sandwiches and burritos.
This will be the Denver-based company’s fifth location in the Valley, as it has recently opened shops in Tempe, Mesa and Chandler.
When deciding where to open their franchise, Adams said he and Clark-Stoner chose to plant roots in Anthem because the city is “already a bit of a planned community, clean and progressive.”
“They offered a lot of amenities — they have a lot of visions going forward of how they want the community to be, and we were happy that we fit into that profile,” said Adams. “The more we looked around, it seemed to be a really good spot.”
The pair was attracted to investing into Ziggi’s in particular due not only to its ability to organize and support its franchises, but its emphasis on sustainability, community and family-focused values.
“Ziggi’s kind of prides itself on the sustainable products that they produce,” said Adams. “Ziggi’s coffee roaster, Coda Coffee, goes to Guatemala, and they help rebuild communities, put up schools and churches, take out poppy fields and put in coffee beans, and Charlie Joe chai is connected to a mission in India.”
Through its business, Adams added that the company cultivates strong relationships with its vendors thanks to its connectivity and community-mindedness.
Recently, Ziggi’s was even listed as the top regional coffee brand on Yelp, according to Clark-Stoner.
“They are growing really, really fast,” she said. “So, we’re really excited to be into something that is new and exciting.”
