Longmont-founded Ziggi's Coffee recently signed their 200th franchise agreement.

Founded on the corner of Main Street in Longmont, Ziggi’s Coffee has signed its 200th franchise agreement to open the company’s first location in Ohio.

The newest location comes on the heels of two new Colorado locations and one in Illinois. The agreement is with Sandra Perdue, according to a release from the coffee shop.

A nurse for the past 24 years, Perdue is a coffee aficionado with an entrepreneurial spirit. As a Ziggi’s franchise owner, she said she is looking forward to calling this business her own, while building a long-lasting legacy.

“I’m so excited to invest in something that my son, JC, and I can do together,” Perdue said in the release. “Ziggi's has it all. A great product, a community-driven franchise system and significant growth. The team is dedicated to making this a successful experience and has provided lots of guidance along the way.”

Ziggi’s was founded in Longmont by Brandon and Camrin Knudsen in 2004, spending 12 years perfecting its processes before franchising in 2016 with three agreements. The company has now signed 200 agreements, opened over 55 franchise-owned locations and seven corporate locations in 14 states with over 120 additional units in development across the country.

“What began as a passion for coffee and community has grown into an amazing family of franchisees,” said Brandon Knudsen, Ziggi’s co-founder and CEO. “The signing of our 200th agreement is an extraordinary accomplishment and a testament to not only the foundation we have set through our systems and processes but also to the quality of our franchise owners who strive to connect our communities and to always be the best part of your day.”

Ziggi’s was recently ranked among the top half of franchises in Entrepreneur magazine’s 44th annual Franchise 500. This is the third year in a row Ziggi’s has been honored, ranking No. 246 and up 40 spots from 2022.

Criteria for qualification on the list includes unit growth, financial strength, stability and brand power.
