The milk tea craze started years ago and it has captured the tastebuds of Filipino consumers from teens to young adults. Milk tea shops began to pop up everywhere—in every corner of the streets, with catchy business names, a whole lot of variety in flavors, and all other gimmicks to catch the attention of milk tea enthusiasts. Just when you thought it was just a seasonal trend, people tend to endlessly fall in love with the drink and they keep on looking for more.
With all the hype and demand for milk tea, Tea Talk owners Ghie and Jerry Pangilinan saw the opportunity to start their own milk tea business. Started in 2019, the owners envisioned Tea Talk to be a unique brand with the best-tasting drinks and to offer a great milk tea experience. Two years later, with profound research and development in the business and the products and with the warm response of the market, Tea Talk opened its door to franchising. Tea Talk currently has a total of twenty-four franchisees, in just a span of two years.
Some of Tea Talk’s influential franchisees include beauty and lifestyle vlogger, Anna Cay and social media star and businesswoman, Viy Cortez. In the past three months, Tea Talk opened new branches in Makati, Batangas, Pampanga, Las Piñas, and Balagtas. Internet couple and famous YouTubers Camille Trinidad and Jayzam Manabat, popularly known as Jamill, is one of the newest franchisees and opened their Tea Talk branch in Gapan, Nueva Ecija. Moreover, Neri Miranda, businesswoman and wais na misis of Chito Miranda, launched her Tea Talk branch in Alfonso, Tagaytay.
Tea Talk is serving milk tea, fruit drinks, and limited-edition flavors paired with delicious meals and snacks that make customers crave and come back for orders. Tea Talk’s Brown Sugar Boba Milk Tea and Buffalo Wings & Burger are the best-sellers among others.
Aside from mouthwatering offerings, Tea Talk takes pride in its franchising services as well. The shop interior is designed to be the hangout space of the town, Tea Talk exhibits quick brand recall through marketing campaigns and gives out continuous support to its franchisees from planning to the actual launch and throughout their operations.
