About the Opportunity
This is a partnership
We’re not in the business of selling franchises. We’d rather partner with you and provide ongoing support and mentorship so that you’re in a position to run your own successful Chatime business. We offer an ongoing comprehensive training package that ensures you are well versed with all our operations and processes. Forget the boring coffee scene and join the constantly evolving bubble tea trend! We recognise fully that your success is our success – we’re 100% in if you are!
A market-leading iced tea franchise
While there are several other iced tea/bubble tea franchise businesses available in Australia, none are as widely recognised as Chatime! We dominate this space because of our innovative product range and our clever adaptation to the Western market. Our drink range is so much more versatile, and fun compared to your average cup of coffee at a standard café. We are continuously re-inventing bubble tea so that customers are always surprised and are left wanting more! Come and enjoy our success and strong reputation with your very own franchise.
A flexible, comfortable lifestyle
Chatime is not your average hospitality business. Our franchisees work an average of 29.6hrs per week (based on an annual survey) and are able to find the time to balance family responsibilities and general life needs. Trust us, you won’t need to pump yourself up with coffee to function! Thanks to our advanced systems and processes – and because we take care of a lot of the admin for you – you can enjoy your life while running a successful business!
Low setup costs
Setup costs start from just $300,000! This includes design and documentation fees, training, shop fit-out, stock and equipment. There is also an ongoing monthly royalty of 6.5% and a marketing levy of 3.5%. Chatime is accredited with ANZ bank and funding is available to approved franchisees meeting their criteria.
With a Chatime franchise, you’re not just supported at the start of your journey. We’ll make sure you’re taken care of throughout our partnership. Let us take care of the admin for you, with HR support, bookkeeping, and rostering. We’ll offer ongoing financial and business advice, as well as recommendations to help you improve operations. We’ll carry out nationwide marketing campaigns to boost the brand, while providing you with your own tools to market locally. Plus – you’ve got access to engaging online training programs which you can use for your staff over and over.
We got you!
