How Much Does It Cost to Open a Bubble Tea Shop?

Generally speaking, the funds your need to prepare for a bubble tea shop is around 40 to 50 thousand US dollars. If you would like to have a franchise, more funds may be needed. Here is to let you know if you would like to develop your own brand, how may the 50 thousand US dollars be allocated for?

1. Location Rental

A golden location needs more expensive rental and even a better business proposal. Location! Location! Location! The rental of a bubble tea shop may take up one third of your total cost, but if this location can truly bring you an enormous number of customers, renting it seems to be a must!

2. Bubble Tea Shop Remodeling

Interior design of a shop is the most important first impression for your customers, so it cannot be overlooked. However, you get what you pay for, which means the more delicate the interior is, the higher the cost is. You need to evaluate your reserve fund and discuss with an interior designer how to come up with the most creative design within the limited budget. At times, spending a fortune may not be necessary, yet using some ingenuity may make your shop more appealing.
