Bubble tea is the latest phenomenon to sweep Europe. Originating from Taiwan in the 1980’s, this bubbly beverage concept is crazy popular in South Asia – where the average person drinks about four cups of bubble tea every month. Bubble tea has also fruitfully made its way across to North America and Australia thanks to their large Asian populations. Now, due to its popularity on social media, the alternative drink concept is now fashioning queues across the European continent and in the UK.
As the name suggest, Bubble tea is a tea-based drink which is mixed together with milk style products or juices, creating a unique blend of exciting flavours. A range of bubble toppings are then famously added to the drink; including, chewy tapioca pears and flavoured jellies. When assembled, the drink is shaken, sealed and served with a big (eco-friendly) straw.
Crazy Bubble was born in Poland in 2012, after witnessing first-hand just how popular the concept was in Asia. Crazy Bubble is the only brand in Poland serving the unique style of Taiwanese drinks. The company imports only the best quality ingredients from Taiwan for a truly authentic experience.
Jakub Woźniczka, Franchise Manager of Crazy Bubble, says while the youth is their main target market, due to the wide range of flavours and products there really is something for everyone to enjoy. With a recent rise in popularity the franchise has exploded to keep up with demand. The company now has 103 stores across Poland, Lithuania and Romania. The bubble tea market has been predicted to grow by up to $1 billion over the next few years. Now, that’s a lot of bubbles!
Mr Woźniczka, told Franchsing.eu that Crazy Bubble are currently looking for franchisees all over Europe. “We are strongly focused on expansion into foreign markets,” he said. Remarking for example, they’re actively exploring business options for Spain.
