Despite the pandemic, Gong cha recently celebrated the opening of its 1,500th store and almost 200 new stores just in 2021.

Brewing happiness

Gong cha is consistently ‘brewing happiness’ for its customers by providing top-quality products and service.

Teaching franchisees the exact temperature to brew the teas, to regularly prepare fresh tapioca pearls and the brand’s close attention to detail ensures that Gong cha bubble teas are superior to other bubble tea brands in the market.

But Gong cha doesn’t stop there. The brand offers more than 600 possible drink combinations and constantly creates new flavors, as well as regular seasonal menus – making sure that the thirst of each and every one of its large, diverse demographic is quenched with an exciting and customizable drink.

Gong cha’s streamlined operations and well-designed processes mean franchisees are guaranteed full support from the expert training team. U.S master franchisee Anchal Lamba, who has nearly 70 stores, has emphasized the importance of having the whole Gong cha team by her side. To ensure a high standard of service, franchisees are provided with detailed manuals and comprehensive instructions. In addition to this, Gong cha supply chains makes sure franchisees do not have to deal with any hassle in tracking down suppliers or sourcing ingredients.
