Billions of cups of tea are consumed daily. This gives entrepreneurs the opportunity to meet the demand with a tea franchise. A franchise to consider is HTeaO. The Texas-based franchise was founded in 2018 by by Justin Howe along with Gary and Kim Hutchens. Capitalizing on the South's love of sweet tea, HTeaO has expanded to over 60 locations across Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Kansas, and Florida. Franchisees benefit from a simple business model and in-demand product. In terms of the iced tea market, HTeaO is the only one innovating in the space and is the first to market. It also notices the trend of increased consumption of iced tea, which typically can only be found in chicken restaurants. HTeaO is looking to change that with dedicated franchisees across the country. Ideal candidates are passionate about customer service and offering a great product. You don't need prior experience due to support and training.
In terms of support and training, you can expect an initial training program that explains everything necessary to run the brand. This program is broken down into classroom and on-the-job instruction and covers marketing and advertising, hiring, managing finances, and more. Support and training are ongoing. This emerging franchise concept allows you to be the first to market and grow with the brand while benefiting from the franchisor's support and proven systems. The brand's menu includes sweetened and unsweetened iced tea; coffee and expresso drinks; and a secret menu of specialty mixes. To incentivize veteran ownership, they receive 10% off the franchisee fee.
