The market for boba/bubble tea products & services is growing rapidly. When bubble tea entered the world market many years ago, it was seen to be a popular short-term trend; however it has proven to be a very reliable and enduring business investment. Within recent years, bubble tea has rapidly become extremely prevalent in the beverage shop industry worldwide. To illustrate, in June 2012, McDonald’s McCafé locations in Germany began offering bubble tea in several different flavors. Now in the mainstream, bubble tea (boba tea) is here for the long haul!
Anyone can sell bubble tea! Whether you’re a bubble tea shop, coffee shop, a smoothie and juice bar, a donut shop, a sandwich store, a kiosk at the mall, a restaurant, or even a booth at the county fair, you can sell bubble tea. Bubble tea is simple to make and highly profitable. With all the right bubble tea supplies (pearls, beverage mixes, syrups, cups, lids, straws), you can expand your beverage offerings, improve your revenue stream and grow your bottom line.
With the right supplies and a little practice, you can turn your bubble tea venture into a complete success story! Depending on the store location and volume, on average, a decent bubble tea shop can sell approximately 150-500 servings a day. There are even stores that can sell well beyond 500 servings! On average, a store charges $3.00-$3.50 USD for a serving of bubble tea (16oz or 20oz serving). This type of pricing will make every drink sold a big addition to your profits. To put this into perspective, each drink prepared will cost on the average approximately $0.75 and much less if supplies are ordered in bulk.
Carpe Diem; seize the day! When bubble tea first started overseas, many skeptics thought the drink was all hype and just a fad. However, in just the past few years, it is estimated that thousands of bubble tea shops have sprung up throughout North America. If you include stores that have added bubble tea to their menus, the figure is estimated in the tens of thousands of new locations. So what are you waiting for? If you do not take advantage of it now, your competitors certainly will. Don't wait to follow others, set the trend.
