by papercups - on Jan 13th 2017 - Comments Off on Bubble Tea 101: How to Open a Boba Tea Shop #boba #bubbletea

Bubble Tea is quickly becoming one of the most popular drinks in America and many entrepreneurs are taking advantage of this opportunity.  In fact, you could start your own basic bubble tea shop for less than $500 with a bubble tea starter kit.

Bubble Tea was invented in Taiwan and goes by many different names such as Boba, Pearl Milk Tea, Zhen Zhu Nai Cha, etc.  Regardless of the name, Bubble Tea is a delicious beverage made with tea or fruit poured over cooked tapioca balls.

There are BobaTea Shops everywhere in Taiwan and the rest of Asia but they are only starting to make there way to mainstream America.

Now that we know what bubble tea is, let’s explore the question of:

Why Open A Boba Tea Shop?

Boba Tea is a novelty in most of the US and for that reason sells for $3-$6 for a 16oz or 20oz cup.  The ingredients only cost about $0.75.  After operating costs, that still leaves a lot of room for profit!

Now back to HOW to Open A Boba Tea Shop?

Successfully opening a bubble tea shop boils down to 4 main components:

  • Quality Product Sourcing
  • Quality Equipment and Materials
  • Good Recipes
  • Training and Proper Technique

Bubble Tea was invented in Taiwan and to ensure the best quality ingredients and processes.  It would make sense that you should source your products from Taiwan.

Ohio based Ice Cream Manufacturer Jeni’s Ice Cream Recalled due to Listeria

by papercups - on Jun 16th 2015 - Comments Off on Ohio based Ice Cream Manufacturer Jeni’s Ice Cream Recalled due to Listeria

Three weeks after reopening, Ohio-based Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams has stopped production and closed stores after finding listeria in its production facility again.

Jeni’s stopped production earlier this week and would temporarily close stores because it did not have enough ice cream in stock, Chief Executive Officer John Lowe said on the company’s blog. (http://bit.ly/1FQbV5N)

The company does not yet have a timeline for when it would resume production or reopen stores.

Jeni’s in April had ceased sales and recalled products, including ice cream, frozen yogurt, sorbet, and ice cream sandwiches, after a random test resulted positive for the potentially lethal bacteria.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Listeria monocytogenes are organisms that can cause serious infection and can be deadly for newborns, elderly people and those with weak immune systems.

Jeni’s on Friday said it has been investigating when and where the bacteria might have entered the facility, but says all ice cream served since its stores reopened on May 22 was safe and free of listeria due to routine testing before ice cream was shipped.

Texas-based ice cream maker Blue Bell Creameries, whose reputation has been hit heavily by a listeria outbreak, last month said it plans to lay off more than a third of its employees and suspend operations at distribution centers in 10 states.

Blue Bell has also recalled all of its products from retail stores citing risk of infection.

After the Blue Bell outbreak, there were 10 people confirmed with listeriosis in four states, health officials said. Listeria infection was thought to be a factor in the deaths of three people at a Kansas hospital where Blue Bell products were served.

Cold Brew from Iced Coffee Startup @WanderingBearCo

by papercups - on May 21st 2015 - Comments Off on Cold Brew from Iced Coffee Startup @WanderingBearCo

Matt Bachmann and Ben Gordon met over coffee — literally.

The two spotted one another while in class at Columbia Business School. “We were both carrying mason jars, both making cold brew as hobbyists and iced coffee lovers. We realized we both shared this passion and it evolved into a business partnership,” says Gordon about the pair’s happenstance, “meet-cute” introduction.
From the beginning, the duo wanted to do things differently. “If the competitors were in bottles, we wanted to be in a box. If they were selling in grocery stores, we wanted to start by selling to offices,” Bachmann says. “We felt this need as consumers; we approached the business from the perspective of coffee drinkers and enthusiasts, and it’s been encouraging that there is an opportunity to share this style of product in the home and office.”

The coffee, says Bachmann, is “bold and incredibly smooth or incredibly bold and very smooth.” The distinct taste is due to the specifics of the cold brewing process, and in Wandering Bear’s case, results in a smooth, bold, dark chocolate flavor.

Objectively, Gordon says, cold brew is a better kind of iced coffee because of the superior brewing process. In the past few years, New York City has seen quite the surge of cold brew offerings — many others are carrying mason jars filled with their original brews.

“How do ya brew?”

For Wandering Bear, the magic happens on Saturday and Sunday. The coffee is roasted in Brooklyn every week and then delivered to a shared kitchen facility in Queens, where it’s steeped in cold water, transferred into bags so the oxygen can be let out and, finally, packaged by hand for freshness in Wandering Bear’s unique 12-cup boxes.

“We can work with our hands to produce something that people seem to be enjoying,” Gordon says. “So to be able to do that at the end of the work week, to will something into existence — it’s an incredibly gratifying feeling.”

Mashable had the opportunity to visit Wandering Bear’s kitchen and observe as they hand-packaged the product, Bachmann’s favorite part of the process. “There’s just something about working with your hands, it’s like an arts and crafts project. It’s just very tactile; it’s not mindless — it’s gratifying.”

Conversations about coffee

As a new business, the most important thing for Wandering Bear is marketing the product well –- talking to consumers and getting feedback.

“Getting to interact with consumers has influenced so much of what we are doing and how we are communicating about the brand,”

“Getting to interact with consumers has influenced so much of what we are doing and how we are communicating about the brand,” says Bachmann.

Other than continually holding tastings in business offices, the iced coffee brand has created interesting partnerships to get the name out there. Wandering Bear is the coffee vendor at Governors Ball Music Festival, the coffee sponsor for Daybreaker parties, recently held tastings at a variety of SoulCycle locations and can be found at Murray’s Cheese Shop, Barry’s Bootcamp , through web-store Goldbely and Fresh Direct.

Bachmann and Gordon are doing what many young entrepreneurs desire: Pursuing their passion. And thankfully for the cold brew-lovers out there, that passion is mighty tasty.

Signed, Sealed, Delivered Burger King’s new delivery service could open doors for other brands.

Burger King’s new delivery service could open doors for other brands.

Wrap concept BSkis in Chapel Hill successfully delivers food to campus students.
College eateries like [B]Ski’s in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, have already found delivery to be a major sales vehicle.

Burger King hopes its new delivery service will be a great profit-driver for the chain, as the company is banking on customers to put in large orders for office lunches, birthday parties, and other gatherings in the select cities where the service is offered.

But it may not be the only brand with a careful eye on the BK Delivers service. Other non-pizza quick serves might be hoping for its success to validate investing in the space, which could open new sales opportunities in urban communities.

Burger King began testing BK Delivers in late 2011 and recently expanded the option to 70 of its restaurants in San Francisco; Washington, D.C.; Los Angeles; Chicago; Oakland and San Jose, California; Miami; Brooklyn, New York; Las Vegas; and Houston.

“The demand has been overwhelming, and we hope to announce more locations soon,” says Petru Pusta with retail innovation for Burger King, in an e-mail to QSR.

Spotlight: Custom Printed Coffee Cups Design

by papercups - on Apr 22nd 2013 - Comments Off on Spotlight: Custom Printed Coffee Cups Design

Today’s custom printed coffee cup of the day comes to us from Gothenburg, Sweden designer Anders Wallner. You can find the BEHANCE profile of his work HERE.

This is a great example of custom printed cups concepts which our clients often inquire to us here at printmycup.com . With custom branded foodservice items you can easily and effectively promote not only your small business or coffee shop, but reach out and communicate with consumers in regards to a cause, event or initiative. Clients now have the potential to communicate and inform through printing informational items on their products. Also its a growing trend to include QR codes or social media links directly onto their cups- building a social presence and affordable means of building your brand community through customized printed paper cups and other foodservice related items.

Cheers to Anders Wallner and the Feministikt Initiativ team for effective use of this useful paper canvas.

Here’s some more details by the way on their cause:

The Cups are called Feministic Coffee and the thaught with this project was to reach out to stressed and busy big city people who would never take time to grab or read a flyer from a party or anything for that matter, but by giving them free coffee you’d not only get them to take the info they’d read it and maybe most important they’d walk around and show the logo and info off. And really who’d say no to free coffee?
The cups feature the three most important issues for Feministiskt Initiativ, such as Equal salarys, shorter workdays and “a new greener way”.
