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.

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!

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

  • Quality Product Sourcing
  • Quality Equipment and Materials
  • Good Recipes

Dunkin Donuts changing the cup game #printmycup

by papercups - on Jun 16th 2015 - Comments Off on Dunkin Donuts changing the cup game #printmycup

Last fall, Dunkin’ Donuts began testing two alternate cups to replace its foam hot cups in select markets, including locations in towns with polystyrene bans, like Brookline and Somerville.

The effort — while admirable because polystyrene is bad — is leaving consumers who sleeve their iced coffee cups inside a foam cup in a pickle. Now several months into their experiment, Dunkin’ Brands says it’s closing in on a favorite foam alternative, and will reveal its future plans for transition by the end of the year.

Both a double-walled paper cup and a #5 recyclable polypropylene cup are available in select markets, with the latter proving to be superior thus far. According to a statement from Christine Riley Miller, senior director of corporate social responsibility and the Dunkin’ Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation:

“We will continue to evaluate and test all available cups until we believe we have found the best solution based on cost, performance, commercial viability and environmental impacts. We expect to be in a position to make a decision regarding an alternative cup and a timeline for the transition to a new cup by the end of 2015.”

The plan to completely phase out the foam hot cups from all Dunkin’ Donuts locations nationwide will be laid out by the company by the end the year, though a timeline for formal implementation has yet to be revealed.

Double cupping, in case you’re not familiar, is a practice particularly customary to New England that goes as follows:

1. Purchase an iced coffee (or tea, if you must) from a Dunkin’ Donuts location.

2. Shamelessly request a foam cup in the equivalent or greater size.

3. Insert iced coffee (or tea, but why?) into foam cup.

4. Bask in the superiority of having a condensation-free beverage to hold.

Despite being wasteful (and tactically useless to the consumption of iced coffee), the double cup technique is practiced quite liberally, and it can be often seen on college campuses and sporting events across New England. The option to oblige the customer’s request for a second cup is at each franchise’s discretion, though some are known to ask for a small fee in exchange for the service. Other coffee chains have not yet reached the widely accepted practice of the Dunkin’ double cup, though they are still able to serve iced coffee with no reported fatal injuries due to lack of a protective outer layer.

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. (

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.

The ultimate eco-move: Food in edible containers

by papercups - on Apr 26th 2014 - Comments Off on The ultimate eco-move: Food in edible containers

Consider this a serious first step towards the edible food container.

That is, if you can take things such as coconut-flavored chocolate frozen yogurt seriously.

On Monday, Stonyfield, the environmentally conscious organic yogurt maker, will take its first baby step towards ultimately eliminating the plastic yogurt container. It will roll out a product dubbed Stonyfield Frozen Yogurt Pearls at a handful of Whole Foods grocery stores in the Boston area.

This frozen yogurt doesn’t come in throw-away cup. Instead, in comes in a flavored, all natural edible skin — much like the skin on a grape. On the inside: organic vanilla or chocolate frozen yogurt. On the outside: an edible skin flavored like peach or banana or coconut or strawberry.

“This shows me that the dream is possible,” says Gary Hirshberg, co-founder of Stonyfield Farm, who has spent decades trying to figure out ways to eliminate environmental waste — including his company’s plastic yogurt cups.

Ultimately, he says, if this edible holder proves successful with frozen yogurt, he hopes to eventually use a version of it with his company’s organic yogurt. And more.

The eco-move by Stonyfield comes at a time consumers are increasingly enamored with environmentally friendly packaging. One of the top 10 global consumer trends for 2014 is a nation of so called “eco-worriers” who increasingly care about sustainability and the environmental impact of everything they buy, says research firm Euromonitor. “Consumers are looking to connect with brands that do not associate with negative environmental impacts,” the study says.

The key to the Frozen Yogurt Pearls, of course, is the skin. It protects the frozen yogurt from the outside and enables it to be washed, handled and carried without being damaged. The product is a joint venture between Stonyfield and WikiFoods. The edible, protective skin is bound via molecular interactions between its two key ingredients, organic fruit and natural ions. WikiFoods is developing other versions of the skin that could be used with anything from cheese to soups.

The “skin” concept comes from WikiFoods founder, David Edwards, who says his Cambridge, Mass-based company’s goal is to package foods about the same way that nature packages fruit. “Consumers will soon be able to choose the skin, shape, size and contents of their food,” he says, and at the same time, make the planet more sustainable.

Hirshberg says he’s wanted to replace the Stonyfield plastic cups for nearly two decades. He was at a 10K race in Boston in 1986, where Stonyfield yogurt was handed out at the finish line. He had driven off after the event and while sitting at a red light more than a quarter-mile from the race, spotted a tossed Stonyfield container sitting in a courtyard. Since then, he says, he’s worked on shrinking the yogurt’s packaging — and, he says, some day, eliminating it.

If the Whole Foods test is a hit, he says, “the next step would be a full commercial roll-out.”

This, he says, may be the beginning of the end of food packaging. “When cellphones first came out, they were pretty clunky,” says Hirshberg. “That’s where we are now with this — but the sky’s the limit.”
