Have you ever heard of Caribou Coffee? It was more prevalent when I was living in states like Nebraska and Missouri. Much like it's not uncommon to see a Starbucks or Biggby location inside retailers and grocery stores here in Michigan, you're extremely likely to see Caribou Coffee fill stores like Hy-Vee and Walmart in the Midwest.

A Minnesota-based company, it's no surprise they chose a reindeer a.k.a caribou as their mascot!

Caribou Coffee already has several locations here in The Mitten but the new Battle Creek store is part of a larger nationwide expansion that will add some 300+ new locations across the country to Caribou's impressive roster of 750 stores worldwide.

If I recall correctly Battle Creek used to have a Caribou Coffee location at 6010 B Drive N. near Sam's Club, but it closed in the early 2010s. It then became a Tim Hortons which has also since closed! Hopefully Caribou has better luck at their new storefront just off Capital Ave and Beckley Road next to Panera Bread.

Caribou Coffee- Battle Creek is open 7 days a week, from 5:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Now that the Battle Creek location is finally up and running, WoodTV8 reports cities like Grand Rapids, Ferndale, and Allen Park will soon join the lineup.
