A tea room can be one of those unique places where people take time out of their busy day to relax. It’s not surprising there has been a surge in the wellness benefits of tea blends that help with reducing stress and improving overall health. It’s a great business to be in if you do it right.

At The Spice & Tea Exchange, we are an established franchise in the tea industry. If you’re looking for a work-life balance where your finances and passions are aligned, there are some key steps you can take. First, you need a strong business plan for your tea bar franchise.

The Tea Room Business: Plan the Idea

The global tea market is very large and on a global scale and extends not only to regular tea drinkers, but also into the cooking, tourism, and health sectors. According to market researchers IMARC Group, the tea industry is exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 4.7% during 2024-2032. The research also notes that specialty and higher-quality teas are more appealing to consumers today who are looking for an experience beyond a grocery store tea purchase.

Determining whether a tea room is a good opportunity depends on knowing if you have the customers you need to be viable and a location that will help drive traffic for residents and visitors. A tea room is an in-person business, and if you don’t have customers, you won’t have a business.

Building a Successful Strategy

The Spice & Tea Exchange is a tea bar franchise with a multi-revenue stream business model. We strongly recommend that your tea room business strategy has diverse product and service offerings that can result in multiple revenue streams and continuously engage the customer. This is not a business to put all of your efforts into a single revenue stream.

Take a look at what other tea room franchises are offering and compare that to what already exists in your targeted territory. Think about how you can elevate a customer’s experience from what they’re currently receiving, or if you can introduce a new experience that customers might be craving.

This information-gathering stage is important for putting together a tea room business plan that will result in a positive financial outcome.
