    bobatea1 Adventurer

      Hi Everyone, I am new to this community.  Pls offer insights and suggestions if you can.  I am thinking of starting a boba tea stand in a local flea market.  But have many questions...like...

       

      1...keeping ingredients cold, tapioca...ice cubes...

       

      2...where to get electricity if stand is in the middle of grounds?

       

      3...equipment needed?

       

      Thanks for help.

          Welcome to the Community.

          We at the community would love to help answer your questions.

          Tell us more. Why boba tea and how soon??

          My first suggestion is that you write a Business Plan.

          The Plan is like a roadmap to success.

          The roadmap should also answer most of your questions.

           

          Good luck and keep the questions coming,  LUCKIEST

            Hi bobatea1, welcome to our community!  As LUCKIEST mentioned one of the first things you should do is to create a business plan.  If you're unsure how to start or proceed with writing one, we have a great Guide: How to develop a business plan.

             

            I'd also suggest that you speak with the venue that runs the flea market.  They should be able to answer any particular questions you might have regarding fees, electrical setups and the like.  They may even be able to recommend a vendor who rents the type of equipment you are looking for.

             

            These are two great places to start, I'm sure our helpful members will be able to provide some additional advice and tips to guide you along your journey!

             

            Cheers,

            -Rebecca

              Hi Bobatea1,

               

              Hey this boba tea looks good anytime,

              I agree with the other responses also, manager there should let you know things like this. Wondering if you done some things online, like you can create a store or checked out different things like that?  

               

              Yea a business plan written out is good, it can guide you, or keep you on path when things get crazy.

               

              Thanks,

              Michael
