What Chatime are saying



Connect with Chatime


Chatime is here to shake up the way Australians drink tea – and we’re growing fast!

Since launching our fresh and fun iced tea concept in Australia in 2009, we’ve quickly grown to become Australia’s largest and most recognised brand in the iced tea/bubble tea market. With over 125 stores nationally and 3,000 stores worldwide, we’re more than ready to expand our business, and we want you on board!

Now more than ever is the perfect time to become a Chatime franchise partner as we continue to pay homage to traditional Taiwanese tea whilst also tweaking our flavours to appeal to the Australian market. We pride ourselves on providing fresh, fun and exciting drinks that offer a healthier alternative to artificial and sugary iced tea options.

We want to support you on this exciting journey of becoming a Chatime business owner!

Our experienced and approachable team truly see this as a business partnership, not a business transaction. We’re looking for passionate, hard-working people who will mesh well with our fun and innovative culture.

Ideal partners are:

• Fun, outgoing and passionate people

• Looking to transform retail or customer service experience into an exciting business venture

• Willing to commit the necessary time and effort

• People who enjoy a great work-life balance

• Financially secure

• Willing to take advice and direction to successfully achieve the Chatime vision

Why us

We’re in this together!

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. 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. As a Chatime franchisee, you’ll also enjoy our success and strong reputation.

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. 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.

Ongoing support

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!

In fact, it’s just eight steps away!

1. Contact us

Submit your expression of interest by filling out the form to the right of this page >>>

2. We’ll give you a phone call

The point of this call is to answer your questions, while also giving us a chance to know you better. We’ll ask about your goals and ambitions, and what you really want to achieve from life and your career.

3. Submit an application

Take some time to fill out the franchise application form. This will provide us with some details about your position and why you’re interested in the opportunity.

4. Let’s meet

This is the time to ask all your burning questions about the business opportunity, and to get a better feel for our team and culture.

5. Plan your business strategy

After meeting with you face to face, we’ll get you to spend some time strategising and planning. This involves completing a Business Plan template, and we’ll support you by offering a Financial Planning Guide (plus – our team is only a phone call away!)

6. Experience it for yourself

Before you dive in and sign all the documents, you’ll get a feel for running a franchise store by giving it a shot at one of our existing t-breweries. You’ll also meet a member from our Operations Team – you’ll be dealing with them a lot when you become a Chatime partner.

7. Final steps

At this stage, you’ll receive draft franchise documents to review with your legal and financial advisors, plus you’ll meet our Senior Management Team for a final approval interview.

8. Welcome aboard, partner!

Once you’re officially approved you’ll be issued with franchise legal documents. As per the Franchising Code of Conduct, you’ll be given three weeks to sign the documents, and then you’re in! We can’t wait to work with you.
