Adding Bubble Tea to Your Menu

add bubble tea to restaurant

Many restaurants and frozen yogurt shops are taking advantage of bubble tea’s popularity by adding it to their menu.

The average cost of a 16oz bubble tea is only about $0.70 (including the cup, straw and lid), while the selling price is $3.00-5.00.  That’s about a 400-700% markup!

Adding bubble tea to your menu can add a nice revenue stream to your business.
