Canadian Franchise Association

Chatime is a major player in the Canadian bubble tea space, and for good reason. Chatime offers a range of milk tea and smoothie options with a revolving door of specialty and seasonal topping choices, which means every Chatime beverage is a unique experience. The trademark milk tea and tapioca pearls exploded with popularity during the pandemic and the company saw strong delivery and digital sales, says Thomas Wong, Chatime’s president.

Now the brand has more than 75 locations in Canada, with no signs of slowing down, making it a strong opportunity for prospective franchisees. The popularity of its offerings has led to high-profile collaborations with brands like Kellogg’s and Red Bull, giving franchisees access to partnerships that turn heads. Chatime also offers franchisees a wide support network for marketing, operations, branding, and real estate. They also include an ongoing coaching regimen to ensure franchise success.
