The Duneland Chamber of Commerce presented two New Business Construction awards at its annual luncheon on Wednesday at Sand Creek Country Club: to Biggby Coffee, 3091 Village Point; and the Residences at Coffee Creek, 2300 Village Point.

Presenting the awards was Julie Paulson of Harris Welsh & Lukmann. Of Biggby Coffee she said, “Biggby Coffee is designed to be bright, inviting, comfortable, a place where customers can sit and stay, or grab it to go. Biggby Coffee is a place where everyone is accepted just the way they are. Biggby Coffee’s core values are ‘Make friends,’ ‘Have fun,’ ‘Be yourself,’ and ‘Share great coffee.’”

Accepting the award for Biggby Coffee was general manager of the Chesterton location, Kenny Furness, whose own mottoes are: “When you love the world, the world loves you back”; “Everyone deserves to feel special”; and “Coffee brings people together.”

As Furness himself said, “We believe in giving back to our communities. Come in, not to buy anything, but just to say hi to us.”

Residences at Coffee Creek

“Independence with Assistance”: the motto of the Residences at Coffee Creek, Paulson said. “They have implemented 21st-century design principles and aesthetics geared specifically to senior residents. The community also adheres to an ‘aging-in-place’ concept that incorporates assistance, memory care, therapy, and more into a senior’s everyday routine, as needed.”

“Outstanding amenities and features include a restaurant with meals prepared by award-winning chefs, complimentary cafe and bistro dining, housekeeping and linen services, grounds-keeping, plus activities and events that engage seniors with their local and immediate community,” Paulson added. “Their amazing location comes with gorgeous views and connectivity to the Coffee Creek Watershed Preserve with walking paths, gardens, and regularly scheduled outings.”

Accepting the award was Lori McLaughlin. “For us, it’s truly about the passion we feel every day when we’re walking the halls,” she said. “It’s more than a construction project. It’s what we feel when we see a new resident moving into their new home, or enjoying the watershed. It’s about the passion we get to see every day.
