Founded in Kaohsiung, Taiwan over 15 years ago, Gong cha has led the charge to establish itself as an industry front runner in the emerging bubble tea market. By delivering a delicious menu catering to the lucrative Millennial and Gen Z customers, the franchise brand is continuing to attract international investment and take its offering to exciting new markets.

“Gong cha is the best bubble tea brand out there because of the quality of ingredients we use. We brew our tea and make our bubbles fresh in our stores every four hours. Our customers truly appreciate this when they walk into our stores and smell the aroma of our fresh tea”, says Anchal Lamba, U.S. master franchisee for Gong cha.

“I’ve seen firsthand the popularity of bubble tea grow over time. Our customers are diverse, and the popularity of bubble tea is especially evident with college students, young adults and even professionals.”

INTERNATIONAL FEEL, LOCAL APPEAL

From its U.K. headquarters in London to its Boston office, all the way to the corporate headquarters in Taiwan, Gong cha is keen to support and guide each and every franchise partner that makes the decision to join its thriving network.

Standards for all Gong cha locations are held very high, and the franchisor will help to source the finest ingredients on its franchisees’ behalf, so that they never need to worry about finding supply partners. Instead, franchise owners can focus solely on delivering the best tea that the world has to offer; with guests eager to share menu items all over social media, prompting organic growth and interest.

In the U.S., Gong cha franchisees have experienced upward of $898,370 average gross revenue for the top quartile. Even with these numbers, the brand is looking to take its potential further – and is looking for the perfect development partners to achieve those goals, looking to quench the thirst of customers in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa next.
