We’re excited to announce The Big Bean (a Severna Park institution) is set to open their 2nd location in Annapolis!!  We are grateful to Greg & Christie Coster to have put their trust in us to get this job done for their business.
The Big Bean’s second location, at 888 Bestgate Road in Annapolis, will feature the same locally renowned drink menu as its original Severna Park location, which has helped the company become the “Best Coffee Shop in Severna Park” for the last decade. The 1,600-square-foot coffee shop will offer menu favorites like their famous Breakfast Harvest Cookie, the Mexican Mocha, green protein smoothies like the popular “Green Gorilla,” vegan and gluten free snacks, along with other quality hot, cold and frozen drink options that can be paired with the shop’s appetizing breakfast and lunch selections. The company’s Annapolis location will include an expanded selection of nitro coffee on tap and cold brew options, as well as a beautifully landscaped 35-seat outdoor patio.
“We could not be more thrilled to be expanding The Big Bean to another part of Anne Arundel County and introducing our concept to the workers and residents of the greater Annapolis area,” said Christie Coster, co-owner of The Big Bean. “Above all things, we value community and coffee, and providing our customers with a home away from home experience that they can depend on from their ‘neighborhood coffee shop.’ We look forward to meeting Annapolis’ workforce and residents, and providing our customers with a level of service, as well as food and drink options that will be unmatched locally.”
“The Annapolis community is in for a treat as The Big Bean expands to its neighborhood,” said Bill Holzman, vice president of retail leasing for St. John Properties. “Once you’re a customer of Big Bean, you become a friend. It’s how the owners and staff of this coffee shop operate, and we could not be more excited to welcome them to 888 Bestgate and watch them become an integral part of the Annapolis community.”
