Greenwood Village, Colorado – Wednesday, July 29, 2009 – Tucked under the shadow of nearby Denver, CO lies the idyllic village of Greenwood. It’s a comfortable blend of rural pastures and urban living. And it’s also the perfect setting for a growing company specializing in providing unique teas, chai, coffees, syrups, commercial equipment, cups, lids, straws and more to the food and beverage industry as well as directly to consumers.
Started seven years ago as a supplier of Boba Tea, also known as Bubble Tea, the company responded to customer requests for additional unusual products. Now they carry what seems to be an ever-expanding line of gourmet coffee syrups from such renown manufacturers as Torani, Monin and Da Vinci, and so much more.
With over 6,000 products, spread across 40+ product categories, and more than 25,000 customers, Boba Tea Direct is a one-stop source for establishments and consumers who eschew the ordinary when it comes to premium food and beverage products and related supplies.
“When we first started the company we never envisioned expanding beyond our goal of being the premier supplier of Boba or Bubble tea in the country,” according to Lin Shieh, Managing Partner. “But as our customer base grew, we started fielding requests for other gourmet and hard-to-find food and beverage specialties. Because there is nothing more important to us than satisfying our customers, we never learned how to say ‘No’,” Shieh added. And judging by their seven-year sales success, that strategy has apparently paid off.
The company’s flagship product, Boba or Bubble tea, is a beverage containing tapioca balls. It originated in Taiwan in the 1980s and quickly caught on with other Asian countries before making its way to Canada and then to the U.S. The literal Chinese translation for this sweet beverage is pearl milk tea. The term “bubble” comes not from the presence of tapioca balls, as you might expect, but from the bubbling process that is used to make the beverage.
The company now carries countless flavors, in powder and syrup formulations, which can be mixed together to produce hundreds of different combinations of Bubble tea including Mocha Bubble Tea, Jasmine Milk Bubble Tea, Taro Smoothies, Royal Boba Milk Tea, Pina Colada Slush, Strawberry Yogurt Snow, and more.
Food and beverage outlets interested in adding Boba tea to their menu can order a Bubble tea starter kit that includes all of the ingredients and supplies needed to have a successful product launch. And of course, the kit includes the requisite extra-wide straws needed to thoroughly enjoy the experience.
Once again heeding the call of their customers, Boba Tea Direct is expanding their product line once again to include an even wider selection of gourmet teas, restaurant equipment, and all supplies necessary for any cafe, coffee shop, or restaurant.
The company even offers a personalized 2-day training program for entrepreneurs who are serious about starting their own cafe serving Boba tea. The course provides instruction on how to make drinks in the most authentic way, as well as the basics of setting up and running the business successfully.
Anyone interested in experiencing the joy of Bubble tea, or who is looking for a one-stop source for all food and beverage products unusual or usual, is invited to visit the company’s Web site at www.bobateadirect.com.
