The Rise of
Starting with Strong Roots
Gong cha got its start as part of the bubble tea explosion of the early 2000s. We helped originate some of the strongest innovations and we’ve maintained a consistent commitment to quality from day one. We’ve leveraged that legacy to become a leader in the global bubble tea industry, serving premium bubble tea with tradition and authenticity in mind.
Today, Gong cha has expanded into 21 countries and grown to more than 1,900 locations—and we’re not slowing down any time soon! As bubble tea quickly becomes the go-to drink for younger demographic groups, Gong cha will continue to lead through innovation, authenticity and dedication to guest satisfaction.

the Very Start
Gong cha started out by pioneering the popular milk foam tea, and we’ve been industry innovators ever since. From seasonal menus that give your guests new reasons to swing by to our signature series that showcases our fan favorites, Gong cha is always eager to push the boundaries to consistently produce a premium bubble tea.
Taking on a Fragmented Industry
Much of the existing bubble tea industry consists of mom-and-pop locations that just can’t match the international system of Gong cha or smaller franchises that don’t have the same claim to fame we enjoy. For you, that translates to a prime opportunity.
Gong cha is set to dominate the bubble tea segment like no one else. We have the global supply chain you need to thrive, and the premium products guests crave. All it takes is entrepreneurs ready to become business leaders in their communities.
