HEAR FROM SOME OF OUR HAPPY FRANCHISEES

Michelle (Dickson, ACT)

Embarking on a journey with Sharetea Australia was tremendous.  The last two years have been both challenging and rewarding, in the way that I was able to work with my dedicated staff, like-minded peer franchisees, and supportive HO teams, to win the hearts of our customers, in the turbulent time such as COVID.   We’ve built up, slowly but surely, our abilities to serve our lovely customers and through collaboration with others, contribute to the growth of the whole network.

Kim and Lan (Fairfield, NSW)

We both wanted to have an additional source of income and be our own boss, after researching the market, we found that Sharetea fit in with our goals and that the brand aligned with our intended market. We also found that investing in a well-known franchise made starting out much easier as the processes were already in place and enabled us to focus on other parts of the business as well as balance our family commitments. We’re grateful for the help and guidance from our area manager and this is particularly helpful in the early stages of growing the business! We also enjoy being a part of the store network and family.

Are there other expenses aside from the franchise fee?

Who is the target audience for a bubble tea shop?

The appeal of bubble tea extends to a wide audience. While young adults in the 16-35 age bracket are the main customers, people of all ages and cultures are attracted to bubble tea because it’s a fun and personalised experience that extends beyond taste.

Bubble tea offers a textural element, for example by including boba pearls, which makes it more exciting than coffees or standard teas. Another reason behind the growing demand for bubble tea is the customisation element. Flavour, sugar and ice levels can be adjusted, making room for exponentially different bubble tea drinks you can order.

How much profit does a bubble tea shop make?

Sharetea bubble tea franchises can be an extremely profitable enterprise. We’ve been in the bubble tea business for over 10 years, and during that time, we’ve collected a lot of experience on what works and what doesn’t to help you hit your financial goals.
